  1. Fleetwood Mac again. What's with the Spanish bit at the end of Oh Well?
  2. Thanks for the comments guys. Looks like I need to get practicing.
  3. Ta for the comments Silvia. I have been googling and it seems that the problems are probably due more to my bad playing than the bass.
  4. The bridge has a curve, but not much of one.
  5. Is anybody using a bow with a Stagg EUB? I am struggling with a bow, but I'm not sure if it is because the bass is unsuitable for bowing or if it is just that I'm crap at it.
  6. Thanks for the comments guys. I cannot get used to playing without the upper bout at all, but even with it fitted, I'm still struggling a bit. I seem to be using the fretting hand to support the bass way more than I should have to. I really need a couple of lessons to sort things out, but they are hard to get in these troubled times.
  7. I bought a Stagg EUB a couple of weeks ago and love it but I am not sure of the best way to hold it when playing. Is it better to hold it close to the body, or to use those metal thingies to keep it away from my body? Advantages of either position? At the moment both seem equally awkward.
  8. Imelda May ticks all the boxes for me.

    STRAY - UK Tour

    Is it too late to say that when Stray supported the Groundhogs at the Caird Hall, Dundee, during the early 1970s they blew the headliners off the stage?
  10. Does anyone have any experience of this book written by Mathew Rybicki? I'm currently using the Friedland bass method also published by Hal Leonard, plus the Friedland walking bass book, but am wondering if I am missing anything by not having this book?
  11. Hi, Could anyone suggest a book that has contains exercises to build good technique? I'm pretty new to the bass and am trying to avoid picking up bad habits that become difficult to fix over time. Cheers
  12. Hi everyone from a new bassist -I bought my first one a couple of months ago- living in North eastern Scotland. I have been playing guitar since the year dot, so the bass is not a totally new instrument to me. Cheers.
