  1. it's just been announced that pubs will reopen indoors from Monday 17th May. Good news, but I can't imagine that there'll be a huge amount of work for bands in the short term - landlords just have to be open, and won't be worrying about trying to offer entertainment incentives to attract punters. Other opinions are available - discuss. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. I've just offloaded a faithful old Peavey Megabass cabinet on ebay and replaced this with a Vanderkley 212, which not only sounds better but is literally half the weight. The annoying thing is, I pulled my back whilst trying to weigh the b####y Peavey on the bathroom scales, so I could state the weight in the ad. ๐Ÿฅบ I then decided maybe it would be best NOT to state the weight. in the advert ๐Ÿ˜
  3. If it can prevent nightmares like this stinker at 0.29, I'm all in favour ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. If you're somehow 'plucking from underneath' (and not as a part of slap and pop technique) then I'd suggest you are using a very unusual technique akin to fingerpicking on the guitar, which most bass players wouldn't recognise. Please tell us more ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  5. Now I'm confused. You'll have to explain what you mean.
  6. Bought a Vanderkley cab from Mark. Top guy, excellent communications, all good Thanks Mark ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. Bass player's interest in how many different basses he's taken to the pub gig = 100% ! ๐Ÿ˜ Other members of the band's interest - 20% ๐Ÿ™ Punters interest = 0% ๐Ÿ˜‘
  8. "So, you play in a band, do you ?" "Yes, but I'm no lead singer or guitarist" "Drummer ?" "No" "Keyboards ?" "No" "So you must be the roadie, then ?" ๐Ÿฅบ
  9. So, take a very talented guitarist called Joe Parrish and give him the complete scores for the incredibly complex 'Rite of Spring' by Stravinsky. And then lock him away in a studio for a year or two. And he comes up with something so seemingly impossible you can't believe it. The sheer dedication alone is jaw dropping. And note for note, it's absolutely accurate to the original score. Enjoy.
  10. Well,, good luck with that one,, my friend,, then you can get roasted for both suggesting that some people hear things differently to other people,, and also your,, choice unusual of order word,, and punctuation,,,, ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. Maybe in time, this will explain everything.........
  12. Here's Pino D'Angio from 1981 with 'Ma quale idea' Does that massive bass line sound familiar ? Too good a bass line to waste. This Madison Avenue track is from 1999 ๐Ÿ˜‹
  13. Here's well talented Gail Ann Dorsey holding down a repeating bass figure in a fantastic arrangement of The Man Who Sold The World, when Bowie appeared live on a Jools Holland show. Not sure of date. Guitarist Reeves Gabrels plays a very short but jaw dropping solo also. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚
  14. I'm well into my sixties, and Mr Brightside is................. a beautifully crafted piece of pop rock dealing with one of the oldest of love emotions, jealousy. I think some of the complainers on here may be suffering a bit from jealousy themselves, and secretly wishing they'd written it themselves. And if I'd written it, I'd certainly be very proud to tell everyone ๐Ÿ™‚
