  1. The Ghosts of Beverly Drive - Death Cab for Cutie (double association whammy)
  2. I read the text before looking at the photo and that is not boring, that looks ace, good work, Sir! If it were me, I’d colour the headstock, as it would tie the head to the body very nicely as the fretboard makes it look disassociated from the body (plus, you have the reverse for the complete head to tail look).
  3. Err, I can spit in a tissue or take a pin to my finger if you want. Oh, I see, from the keyboard players I mentioned. Are you cloning band members? Just when you thought BC couldn’t get weirder 😆. Sadly, they’re all about 500 miles south of me these days, but I could ask if they wouldn’t mind (hmm, on second thoughts that’s just wrong).
  4. Why Does It Hurt When I Pee? - Zappa
  5. That is priceless and so perfect. A sad day, but sounds like it was a good send off. He will be missed on BC for those who interacted with him or even just read his posts, he was part of what made BC a good place to be. RIP, MB1.
  6. Crying to the Sky - BeBop Deluxe (they’re back!)
  7. Arms of Mary - Sutherland Bros & Quiver
  8. I’ve been lucky enough to play with 3 very talented keys players, one of whom has become a very close friend. However, he had to be ‘told’ a few times in our early days…
  9. The Ballad of Bonnie & Clyde - Georgie Fame
  10. Neither the official Wishbone Ash (Andy Powell) or Martin Turner ‘plays’ Wishbone Ash (a very acrimonious court case said that MT can’t call his band WA) are as good as the tribute band, Ashbone U Wish, IMO. Both of the ‘name’ bands are missing something and that something is each other, but that’ll never happen now. I’ve seen both the AP & MT incarnations (probably more than any other band) numerous times and I’ve always been disappointed sadly. AUW we’re always spot on and their bass player, who is a member here, even depped for Bob Skeat on one the tours. Sorry to just drop in widdle over the OP’s fireworks, if anyone enjoys either incarnation, I’m genuinely happy for you and a little envious too. Argus and New England are my favourite WA albums.
  11. Digging on James Brown - Tower of Power
  12. What a superb, comparison demo. That’s how it should be done. Kudos, Good Sir. 👏👏👏 I really like that Eko.
  13. Yep, Bobby V turns it round from the pointy end as does guitarist (yes, I know, but he is a bit good) Robben Ford. Oh yeah, I do too! I find it gives a softer attack, whilst also feeling more comfy.
  14. Neither are particularly vintage, but the Hipshot A comes in a number of widths, whilst the Schaller is adjustable. https://hipshotproducts.com/collections/bass-bridges/products/a-style-bass-bridge https://schaller.info/en/bridges/337/3d-4?c=52
  15. Great introduction, Maarten. That’s how it should be done.
  16. Bohemian Like You - The Dandy Warhols
