  1. Played in Didsbury at The Railway last night, a great bunch of bands and with really good promoters running the night (Deco Records, well worth hitting up for gigs). Anyway one of the bands were called Shallow Waters and they were amazing, imagine Led Zep meet Queen's of The Stone Age. Check em out; X
  2. Jesus, out of my budget then. 😅 X
  3. Very nice, do we have an idea on price? X
  4. Alright folks! I've already posed this in the "gigs" section of the forum but I'm super proud of it so I've got to be a cheeky bugger and post it here too. It's a full set, all my own material, from a gig I did last month at the 3 Minute Theater in Manchester. I'd love to hear what you all reckon. X
  5. I'm working on this cover of my friends song, here's the original; and here's how mine's sound thus far; https://www.dropbox.com/s/74qo7qml0l3exet/Boundaries Of Sensation - rough clip 4.mp3?dl=0 this is all just drafting it out, so the playing and vocals are fair rough and I need to tweak how the harmonies in the chorus work, I'll post an update when it's properly finished. X
  6. Just got this footage back from a gig I did last month, I'm chuffed to bit's with it and I'd love to here what you all reckon. X
  7. Cheers @SpondonBassed I'm glad you enjoyed it! 😊 X
  8. Been listening to this recently and I'm totally in love, the full album is insane! X

      Dingwall combustion has a 37 inch B.  Nothing sustains like it in my experience

  10. 🙌🙇🙌🙇🙌🙇🙌🙇🙏 👏👏👏
  11. Brilliant this month folks, well impressed! And @lurksalot man as always well impressed, tidy riff, I listened to it a few times through. 🙌
  12. This all makes sense, so I guess what I'm asking is; at what point does "competence" your ability to execute said tasks (Fretting accuracy, intonation, rhythm and timing, etc.), ascend into something we'd call "technicality"? Is it simply a question of averages? If a piece takes a higher level of competence than a bassist with an equivalent facility to the mode average could achieve, then does that piece meet the requirements to be deemed technical? "Technicality" defined as an above average "competence"... I think... haha, 🤣 like... Imagine a spectrum of ability that (for sake of discussion) goes; crap, decent, competent, technical, virtuosic.
  13. Well that's it really, just been mulling it over in my mind... I mean obviously there are graded pieces; so we know certain academic boards have figured out a system of measurement, but I honestly don't know what parameters are assessed and it's easy to make the assertion; "the nuances that set the threshold for technicality are subjective." but I'm not so sure... What do you reckon? Is there an objective threshold for technicality or what can be called a technical piece of music?
  14. @Kevsy71 cheers man, you've just made my day! 🙌 🙏

    Yo, I'll do the 3 for £75 if you're interested, no pressure if not. Links to my album are in my signature, it's all my engineering/mastering. I'm by no means a pro mastering engineer but thought I'd extend the offer, as I say though; no pressure either way.
