    Bass for REAL bass players! 😁

    Excellent, thanks for posting that, very interesting. I love the bit that states “should never be purchased by the serious student”!

    Firewood, maybe? Can you imagine trying to teach it as a minority instrument in a primary school!
  3. This arrived on my YouTube feed. I’m really not sure what to say!

    How was your gig last night?

    Perfect! Guitarists are best seen and not heard,......possibly not seen either. Glad it well,

    How was your gig last night?

    Wild night of swing and blues jamming at the Downend Tavern, Bristol last night. The place was full of musicians many wanting to play (we have a reputation of allowing people to join us onstage, give them a chance to blow). We had three extra harmonica players, Sean The Horn McBride on sax (damn fine player, stupidly good) plus the full band - busy. I was feeling a bit under the weather having just discovered a rather uncomfortable cheese intolerance so was grateful to step back and let others have a go. Punters loved it, best reaction we’ve had there. Next time there may be a flautist...apparently. How cool would that be?! Thanks to @Rich for coming down, sorry I wasn’t more chatty, hope to see you soon; and the first bassist I ever worked with when I moved to Bristol 40 years ago was also in the audience, nice to catch up. Back to Ed Sheeran today 😩 with the bonus of some “lute n vocal” practise hopefully.

    Show us your rig!

    Lol! Brilliant! Remember Thud! and Mr Grins? Wanna pen? Buy a pen for a fiver and get these four beers free! We had the large room and decided to crank up my fender twin and your 900watt rig. Poor old Phil didn’t know what hit him and bits fell of the ceiling. It was LOUD! awesome!

    Best place to find new band members?

    Shared to my Facebook page, who knows where it will go!

    How do prospective guitarists contact you?

    Best place to find new band members?

    Just spread the word. I posted on five Facebook sites, went through my contacts diary, advertised on here and I’ve had a very good response. Once people see what you want and what you are (provide a video maybe) they seem willing to help. It’s been great. People recommend people who recommend people. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by everyone and have a number of people for audition...where are you based and do you have any more details? Number and frequency of gigs, pay might help, location, rehearsals, your expectations, etc Best wishes Mark

    Ibanez SRF705-BBF ... catchy!

    Go for it! G’wan. I wasn’t sure about fretless when I first tried, took a while to get used to it but I really like it. I’m waiting for the next payday and confirmation from @Rich for our Boys Bass Day Trip.

    Prep for audition/first meet

    @StringNavigator you sound perfect for the band I play in, although the commute looks a little long.
