  1. That is really good! Great groove, I’d like to hear more.
  2. Bach Two Part Invention number 4 - partly for a student, but since I got going it’s fun to play. I’m using it to teach myself some simple recording on Logic.
  3. These adverts are a pain in the butt. They appear behind each post and over the “next page” buttons. Is there anything that can be done about them or is it just me? Thanks
  4. Just listening to one of the cd’s from the front desk - Gadu Gadu Terra Incognito (Adrian Maruszczyk). It’s very ECM, Jan Gabarek comes to mind, but less intense. Well played, well written, well produced etc. It’s really good, lovely stuff. I’m looking forward to the others! Now I REALLY must get on with some work! 😜😔
  5. Great day, folks! Thanks to all involved in organising, preparing and running everything. I found plenty to lust after/consider for future purchases/wish I could prepare food like that! Great to meet everyone, too! hmmm....Ibanez src6 @Frank Blank ?
  6. Hi Folks, I need a bass player preferably with BVs for a Wedding/function band. Note - THIS IS A START UP (just want to make it clear, sorry to shout!) Game plan so far.... May half term - record 5 track demo. To be done at Warminster school where me and keys teach, therefore it’s free. August - rehearse 30 song set list (tbc), complete website, film promotional showreel. Chance of rehearsals before then is limited as we all teach. Autumn - small pub gigs to help us gel. There will be upfront costs (PA, lights, website etc) shared equally unless you need your own kit. Estimated cost per person is about £500, not all in one go etc, more likely as we go, intended returns £250 per person per gig (not including pub gigs obviously!) We will be working with backing tracks that we create - extra instrumental parts, bv’s, etc. I’m hoping we can do a programmed light show etc as well Current lineup - female vocal, Keys, gtr, drums. Just missing you! i will be at the South West Bass Bash if you want to discuss further If this is of interest let me know. Thanks Witters
  7. Enough room for a little one? I’ll be there. Who do i pay? I will bring my Yamaha RBX765 custom fretless 5 string I have a TC Electronic BH250 and Eden 1x12 cab if you like, but I’m happy to leave those behind if you already have one!
  8. I don’t have the room any more and I’m rubbish at selling stuff (though I do have a jazz guitar I’d let go at the right price). I went through a phase of buying a few nice pieces after my divorce, “because I could, finally, I was free to do as I pleased”, so I did. Once that was satisfied the “need” left me. These days it is specific instruments for work (the fretless and the jazz copy) and I am trying to use everything I have. The irony being that my most used instruments are the least expensive! A useful lesson. However, I do have one major GAS .... a baroque lute, swan neck, 13 course. £7k new, half that second hand. Then I would need the time to learn it. Unlikely to happen. Hey ho, enjoy what you’ve got!
  9. After weeks, possibly months, of saying “I wanna fretless, I need a fretless, i can’t justify one, I don’t play fretless, I would if I had one” etc I finally have one. Well, actually it’s with the guitar repair man getting some new strings and a full setup. I could do it but he’s sooo much better than me. Originally owned by the lovely Ricardo Westie and made fretless by John Shuker it’s the red one in the photo. The black jazz copy is a BC purchase and it’s great. The 6 is a Peavey Grind, also great (I may gut the electrics one day, but I say that about all my basses/guitars). If I manage to get to the South West Bass Bash I’ll bring these with me - not as exciting as some pieces, but they’re mine and I love ‘em!

  11. Excellent, thanks for posting that, very interesting. I love the bit that states “should never be purchased by the serious student”!
  12. Firewood, maybe? Can you imagine trying to teach it as a minority instrument in a primary school!
  13. This arrived on my YouTube feed. I’m really not sure what to say!
