    How important is the band name for you?

    I've actually been toying with Monday Rules. Because we have a no politics and no religion rule. We also later added preamps to the banned list because one of the lads is a bit of an anorak and it got a bit boring. 😂

    True enough. But the band formed out of a group of friends who meet up for a few beers every Monday night. We actually call it the Monday Club. None of the other 6 have any relevance.
  3. I'm very tempted myself with the 5 string. The reviews are outstanding and the thing looks amazing, and looking at a few YouTube videos it sounds pretty good too. I can't see how you can go wrong at that price.

    How important is the band name for you?

    Just though I'd revive this thread instead of starting a new one because it's nice to see I'm not the only one struggling to name a band. I've come up with several, what I thought we good names, only to find after a bit of Google Fu they've been taken. Even "Monday Club" which was in the running for a while has been had by someone on this very forum. We're a five piece rock/ pop / blues covers band with a female singer and we're hoping to start gigging in a couple of months time, but we also have the added complication that we're all English people living in Bulgaria, so the name has to be something that, at the very least can be understood and pronounced (although not necessarily directly translated) in both languages. Brain racking continues.

    Great bit of kit these. I love mine. It's the only "pedal" I own or am ever likely to need.

    Weight Of The Bass

    My left ear is heavy but my right ear is light. I just find myself going around in circles looking for the right sound.

    Bug*er that went quick

    Cheap!!! 😵 I didn't pay that much for the house I reherse in with my £200 Squier.

    What's on your Christmas list?

    Three bottles of vodka and hopefully a blackout until all the [email protected]@cks is over with for another year.

    I can't even do that after 6 months rehearsing with the same band. 😂

    Does it really matter what gear you have??

    I've had this discussion with my guitarist several times. His theory is, he sees himself as an average guitarist, so throwing loads of money at gear will make him sound better. My arguement is, that it would be imperceptible to 99 percent of the people listening. However, if he perceives himself as sounding better, then he will play better. Therefore, yes, expensive gear can make you sound / play better. But in my opinion it's mostly a placebo effect.

    Practicing without a drummer.....

    Sadly not. We never really got to the stage where we had any specific tracks down. We were only a few rehersals in and none of us had played for years. Also it was one of those putting the house up for sale to "test the market" kind of things and it sold within a week. So one week it was all systems go. The next week he was packing up his kit.

    Practicing without a drummer.....

    Sounds like a pretty good arrangement to me.

    Practicing without a drummer.....

    Strangely that's not a problem. We have one of those rare beasts, a shy guitarist. We spend most of our time trying to get him to turn up. 😂

    Practicing without a drummer.....

    I'm sure one of the lads mentioned having a drum machine. That could help if things get desperate, but I honestly think it'll do us good to go without for a while.
