  1. I ended up building my own board with its custom fitted case because the prices for such a low tech thing are mad
  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  3. I bought a Fender PJ Mij to Lee and it was a pleasure to deal with. Very good communication, open to options, patient with my funny French English. Bass is as described. thank you
  4. Very cool. And most important : it makes you smile ...
  5. thank you my teacher showed that two years ago but I rarely played chords. Thank you for this good refresh. I enjoyed the last part with the 9th to 10th trick. Keep on :-)
  6. is there a cavity at the rear ? if yes, you could try the following redneck solution that I applied on my Gibson money bass : I used wheel weights (the one used to balance the wheels on your car) inisde the cavity. They are sticky... I used 300g The cavity was full and there was still a bit of neckdive, so I raised the rare strap pin (around 4 inches - 10cm) to move the center of gravity. It's now ok, still a bit of neckdive but I can stand it πŸ™‚
  7. very nice bass, will be good for Duff bass lines πŸ™‚
  8. HEre are some tools I use to learn a song. 0 - Ears : listen, listen, listen. Count the beats / measures to feel where the changes are (verse, chorus, bridge, solo...). Often you find a verse with 4 "sentences" made of 4 measures each, it helps to memorize the structure 1- For track separation : Website Moises.ai it's not perfect but it's good enough to start and help to ear the bass part in the mix 2 - For tabs and music sheet : https://lessonsthatrock.com/bands/free-bass-tabs/b-g/guns-n-roses-bass-tabs-pdf Maybe they are not perfect but it definitely helps, I appreciate the classic notation. I am not a good reader but it helps to understand the rythmn (notes duration) and also feel the melody... 3 - Audacity to modify the bpm, Riffstation was really good (also for pitch tuning as a lot of GnR songs are in Eb tuning) but is no more available from Fender. Maybe possible to find the install exe somewhere on the net You can also slow down in Youtube but it's raw (50%; 75%, 100%) 4 - Chordify is also good to give a raw idea of chords 5 - KAraoke version website ( https://www.karaoke-version.co.uk/bass-play-along/) : not free but not expensive and usually the versions are close to the original. HAve fun πŸ™‚ and also congratulations for your quick progression.
  9. I am also learning this song intro is melodic and it helps to sing it the rest of the song is quite simple but there are slight variations. All these variations are different. That’s the difficult part if you want to play it perfectly conform. I learn these variations but I adapt them to my taste (and limited skills) and play them when I feel it πŸ™‚
  10. I had a similar surprise with an Ibanez Blazer : the saddles were very high and It was buzzing when I tried to lower them for a decent action... there was a shim in the neck pocket. I removed it and I was then able to lower the saddles (2.5mm for E string at 12th fret). I think that some people put a shim because "I read it on the internet"... even if there's no need for
  11. for my own fun : it depends πŸ™‚ Sometimes it's "If it’s Godunov for Boris, it’s good enough for me"
  12. Very good question... I don't play very well but I try to stick to original if it sounds good and if I am able to play it. Otherwise I have absolutely no remorse to adapt it πŸ™‚ As my teacher said : ryhtmn first... For example, there are songs where the bass line is quite simple but with a lot of small variations, I never remember where they fall in the song... then it's "free style" for me IF it sounds good AND IF the band members are ok... For other songs, the bass line "is the song".... more difficult to adapt πŸ™‚
  13. Eb tuning i tried to make a preset with a simple half step detuning. But I failed I tried monophonic with a half step down and nothing else but it is muddy. I tried polyphonic but the tracking is not good any idea ?
  14. I have switched to these : cheap, reliable... https://www.thomann.de/be/daddario_dual_lock_pw_dlc_01.htm?glp=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpa-4i6i57AIVSeJ3Ch3lhwC0EAQYBSABEgKMJfD_BwE
