  1. Thanks so much, I'm on SBL, but hadn't seen this.
  2. Apologies if this has been addressed in previous topics, but I'm a learner with a left-hand problem. When I fret with my little finger, my middle finger flies away from the fretboard. It's as if I need to get more leverage to support the pinky, but I've proved to myself that that's not necessary. The action on my Ray 34 is pretty low, so I don't have to push hard on the strings (Ernie Ball Super Slinky). It's not a problem most of the time, but anything fast with lots of eighth notes can be awkward (I'm not even thinking about sixteenths!). Apart from practice, practice, practice, any thoughts? Thanks. Pete.
  3. Just looked up petrichor in the dictionary and now it's my favourite word too, I love that after-rain grassy smell.
  4. So interested! Please PM me if other expressions of interest don't work out. Thanks.
  5. Someone a bit off the wall: Richard Siinclair - bassist with Caravan, Hatfield and the North and, later, Caravan of Dreams. Although he came to bass late, he held down the bottom end in a maelstrom of jazzy prog-rock psychedelia, no mean feat.
  6. Bugger!, completely missed this thread - I'd have had it in a heartbeat. Great case!
  7. I think it's great that there's a national event dedicated to bass and that it's outside London. Apparently, it's being run by the people behind the National Drum Show. Anyone got any experience of that? I'm going anyway, I think any effort to promote the low end deserves support.
  8. Thank you so much for all your hard work - its a really useful and enjoyable resource, even for a learner like me.
  9. Syzygy - deal with it. 😉
  10. Yes, but what about XYZ? 🤔😉
  11. I'm in, happy memories of this year's.
  12. It must be powerful, it's blown you right out of your shoes! 🤣
