  1. Great week recording in Weston! Managed to get some articles, remote sessions & plenty of pints done too 😁 back to flooded Wales tomorrow & a new student starting

      Sounds like you had a cracking week there matey :)  Don't forget to post some links to the recorded material, or snippets of it
      ..... and next time, some beer samples wouldn't go amiss either ;)

      It was tiring but worth it!, Will do when it's released. I filmed a bit but I'm not allowed to post it 🙃 John Smith's was lovely at £2.80 a pint 👌

    To Cull or Not to Cull...

    I've had 30+ in the past but I'm really cutting it back to a custom "Pingray" fiver, old jazz a fretless & my upright. I think they will cover 99.9% of anything I'd have to cover. I do have regrets selling a few but I suppose that's life 😔

    ‘Nose grease’.

    I'm sort of in the boat with the changes between rounds & flats for different gigs.. Getting really bad blisters from rounds at the moment. John Deacon can be seen licking his fingers before different passages live quite a few times. Although never nose grease, I do occasionally moisten my fingers just a little bit to "ease the pain" I always change strings on pre owned instruments you don't know where they've been 😂
  4. This is next level! The relicing & yellowing are truly fabulous 👌
  5. Sounds like a great setup aDx! Always found Cort basses to have a nice fundamental sound to them 👍
  6. John Deacon Feature in the next issue of BGM by Mike Brooks!! Can't wait to give it a read 😁

      Such a great bassist. Any news on how he's doing nowadays?

      He's doing okay, I have very limited contact with him, but he is aware of the article & such. Need to get a few copies of it asap

    How was your gig last night?

    I think so too, I'm only a dep so I think I'll have a word with the band first.

    How was your gig last night?

    Played with a Manic Street Preachers & Stereophonics tribute band on Saturday. Decent crowd, good band (old boys) but the singer was a bit off. Would start tracks on his own, chop & change the set as we went. I'm depping with them again next month, fingers crossed he doesn't do that again.
  9. My home from home studio for 7 days while working in Weston 👌 going to get a lot of work done on sessions, tracks & articles 🤞I hope!!

      If you get bored one evening, shout out. I'm only 15 miles up the road and I might be able to get an evening pass if I ask SWMBO nicely :lol:
