    Best gear at gigs?

    what's the point of having kit that you won't use?
  5. Am I bothered if I ding my relic’d bass? It's not 'relic'd' it's just dinged. HTH

    Why can you not play quietly???

    In my band everyone understands the words Quiet, Slow, Space, Atmosphere and Tension - all words that seem to draw blank expressions on many.....

    Yet More Band Name Woes

    My mate had a band which has now disbanded I think which had a great name for a bunch of codgers getting together to play: 'Old Country Union' That name always tickled me.
  11. Plectrum generally gives sharper attack. There are some songs in my set that I recorded with a plectrum but, since suffering a neck injury that has caused a permanent numbness in my right hand and arm I find I no longer have the grip strength to hold a plectrum. Many of the ding-diggadigga-ding rhythms that lend themselves so well to pick playing can be tricky to play with fingers, not so much for the speed (although once you get to 140ish bpm ding-diggadigga-ding gets tricky) but the attack. Getting such a short sharp attack with fingers is nigh on impossible.

    What's going to happen to CDs ?

    Either you've got a time machine or you're posting from a different dimension or I've been in a coma for the last 2 years. Which is it?

    CDs last - they're plastic aren't they? thousands of years to degrade isn't it? All my 80s CDs still play fine.
