  1. Not the Pyramid stage, unfortunately! Playing the Shangri-La Truth stage on Thursday night, Avalon stage on Friday afternoon and a back stage bar gig on Sunday night. Are you going?
  2. These books are brand new - I was given them by a music publisher I worked for and they have remained in a drawer ever since. Prices include postage. Metallica - ... And Justice For All (Bass & Vocal) £8 Metallica - Load (Bass & Vocal) £8
  3. No problem Graham! That era of stuff is a favourite subject of mine ☺️ Yep, that would have been me with Linear at the Dingwalls show - they hadn't played any shows before I joined. Glad you like Manvantara, I agree it's a step up from the first record (and not because I wasn't on that one, haha!) I only recorded a couple of tracks with Xerath before they called it a day, one got uploaded to Youtube as a farewell (on which I played Stick) but the other has still to see the light of day (shame as that was a fretless track!). I am however now playing for The|HAARP|Machine...
  4. Sean Malone is a fantastic player, he's had a huge influence on me and is the reason I took up both fretless and Chapman Stick. I was fortunate enough to have a lesson with many years ago actually, whilst he was here in London recording with Bill Bruford for the second Gordian Knot album (I have also had the honour of playing Chapman Stick for Cynic a number of times back in 2008). If you like Cynic, Death, Spiral Architect etc. you might like my old band Linear Sphere, I play fretless (and Stick) on the album throughout: If you are a fan of Steve DiGiorgio be sure to check out his own band Sadus, their '92 album A Vision Of Misery was Steve's first fretless outing as Human was all recorded on his black fretted Rickenbacker. Whilst I am in geek mode, the bass on the Spiral Architect album is all fretted too, Lars played a Steinberger Q4 back then!

  7. Context and taste will dictate when it's appropriate to add sevenths and extensions. First of all, be aware that sevenths are a chord tone and therefore determine the quality of the chord, extensions (also know as tensions or upper structures) are more like flavouring or spice - they add richness to the chord but do not affect its function. Below is a chart to help you determine the correct sevenths and extensions to use within diatonic major harmony, you will see the these notes are dictated by the scale each particular chord is derived from. Not all extensions are used for each chord type as some sound dissonant and are therefore considered 'avoid' notes - a general rule of thumb here is that an extension should be a whole tone above a chord tone (there are of course exceptions to this, such as on an altered dominant chord, but this a whole topic in itself). Be careful in your analysis of the line here @ambient, by naming everything as an extension you are missing the true function of these notes - the first G in bar 17 is a diatonic approach note from above to the F (which is the 5th of the chord), the next G and A are simply passing tones from the F to the root note of Bb on beat 1 of the following bar.

  9. Sorry @mumra, no time to post. These have now all gone.
  10. Various rack spacers (1u and 1/2u) and a rack tray (2+1/2u I think?), see pic for details. Collection only from London W4.
  11. Pedaltrain Mini, plus soft case. Board itself is in great condition, the soft case has a missing zipper on the small front pocket, zip for the main compartment is fine and there are no scuffs or rips etc. Collection only from London W4 at this time. £25
  12. Hi @tracktionmonkey I am based in W4, so probably about a 40min tube ride for you, if you don't find anyone more local.
  13. Learning ear training in this way will only enable you to recognise the sound of an interval, to get the complete picture you really need to internalise what the notes sound like in relation to a key centre. Download the Functional Ear Trainer app from http://www.miles.be/, it was recommended to me by my old teacher Joe Hubbard and I recommend it to all my students; I also like Bruce Arnold's books which Trey Gunn recommended. Both methods are based on a Charlie Banacos exercise I believe.
