  1. [quote name='SpondonBassed' timestamp='1493729391' post='3290179'] If that's how you see it then yes, most definitely. If that behaviour, perceived or otherwise, offends you why not do the mature thing and pass by his posts? You don't get offended and Blue's topic suffers less disruption. Win-win. Other suggestions are available. Have a nice day. PS; I [i]am[/i] pretty much a bedroom player myself. I can laugh at it too because I know that [u]we[/u] are the future. Heeheehee [/quote] It doesn't offend me in the slightest, if I got offended by narrow minded old men who repeatedly state opinion as fact then Basschat would be a pretty stupid place to be a member of. I continue to read his posts in the remote possibility that one day he might say something that will change my opinion of him. I also see other people replying to his posts who seemingly feel the same way about them as I do & I'm always interested in their responses.
  2. [quote name='silverfoxnik' timestamp='1488955851' post='3253148'] No, it's a very genuine dislike of the whole Jamiroquai sound, their songs and JK's vocal stylings. It actually makes my skin crawl and toes curl up ( as the saying goes).. Lots of other artists I'd consider myself to be a little envious of though; either for their talent, success, seemingly wonderful life etc, but definitely not Jamiroquai. [/quote] They effect me like that too.
  3. [quote name='Twigman' timestamp='1493725639' post='3290124'] The reviews seem surprisingly favourable. Is this a result of the internet? and publications wanting linkage? Historically the press have hated us. Does nobody give a bad review anymore? [/quote] I think a lot of it has to do with a lot of music reviews now being written by genuine music fans & not by music journalists who were more interested in their own fame than the bands they were writing about.
  4. [quote name='SpondonBassed' timestamp='1493710196' post='3290005'] I have [u]never[/u] seen this sort of behaviour from Blue. [/quote] So you interpret his remarks differently from me (and possibly some others on here too). I regard his constant belittling of bedroom players, start up bands & anything else that doesn't fit with his myopic mindset as little more than trolling.
  5. They are superb basses, my Legacys were the best basses I've ever owned.
  6. It's a Wishbass, so called because people buy them & then say "I wish I hadn't bought this bass".
  7. [quote name='anzoid' timestamp='1493460186' post='3288466'] It's the Big Al before there was a Big Al [/quote] That is infinitely cooler than a Big Al.
  8. [quote name='W1_Pro' timestamp='1493526515' post='3288907'] If it said 'Wal' someone would have paid him four grand for it..... [/quote]
  9. Still using mine for many hours every day (I wear them in bed & when I go out) & the foam tips are still as good as new.
  10. [quote name='timmo' timestamp='1493466704' post='3288556'] Surely if it was a Limelight or Nash, it would look a lot better than that? [/quote] "Better" is subjective.
  11. [quote name='FinnDave' timestamp='1493463523' post='3288522'] I am firmly in the first camp, if the gigs completely dried up, my gear would be sold and I'd be gone. For me, it has always been and always will be about playing to audiences. The only time I play at home is when I have to learn new songs. I do my best to avoid time in recording studios as I find it boring beyond description, but I know people who consider that the pinnacle of musical perfection. I obviously understand that there are people with different opinions to me, but that doesn't help me to understand them! [/quote] Fine, but the big difference between you & Blue is you don't feel the need to start argumentative threads about pretty much the same bloody subject every week or so.
  12. [quote name='blue' timestamp='1493463041' post='3288519'] I would hope I'm not mean spirited. At times I'll post something orovacative but not mean. Of course people play for different reasons. However, you won't convince me that playing alone in the bedroom is more fun than playing with other musicians to a live engaged audience. Recording and writing film scores is completely different. You won't get an argument out of me there. Blue [/quote] I'm not trying to convince you of anything. It is however a fact that some people are passionate about playing but have no interest whatsoever in playing live or being an entertainer. How is recording & writing film scores "completely different"? Most of the people I know who do that work on their own in their bedrooms which, you are adamant, is not as much fun as playing live. All it seems you want to do is bitch & sneer at people who aren't exactly like you.
  13. [quote name='blue' timestamp='1493460724' post='3288473'] Agreed, Playing alone in the bedroom has always been more fun than playing to a live engaged audience. Blue [/quote] Do you have some kind of cognitive impairment that doesn't allow you to understand that not everybody plays for the same reasons as you or are you just a mean spirited troll? I know musicians who would stop playing if they couldn't gig, the entertainment part of it is the most important thing. I also know plenty of musicians who have no interest in playing live & spend their time working on recording & writing projects, film scores etc. Both types of people love & enjoy what they do passionately.
  14. [quote name='blue' timestamp='1493429738' post='3288296'] I'm not sure if they're having much fun, but maybe fun has changed too. [/quote] Fun hasn't changed. Fun was, is & always will be a purely subjective thing. Just because somebody is doing something you wouldn't enjoy doesn't mean that person isn't having as much fun doing it as you have when you are gigging.
  15. [quote name='Monkey Steve' timestamp='1493383582' post='3287957'] I'm not sure if that's self deprecating in telling us that you don't use your brain, or showing off that your brain is genuine musical equipment [/quote] Definitely the former.
  16. [quote name='Wilco' timestamp='1493219687' post='3286642'] So, as bassists we like the low notes right? [/quote] No. I prefer the sound of the middle range of the instrument. I've yet to hear a low B that I didn't think sounded sh*te. If I want really low bass I'll play it on something that is better at doing it, like a synth.
  17. If it said Limelight or Nash on the headstock people would be creaming their pants over it.
  18. I laughed when i saw that too - "put a shirt on, you're 50"
  19. Some of us can't afford more than one bass.
  20. [quote name='paul h' timestamp='1493117728' post='3285703'] I spent all last year trying to get a modern country band together. It proved impossible to get a guitarist that wasn't a classic rock player. Every profile on every band site and every guitarist all seemed to list classic rock as their interest first! I even swapped to guitar to try and solve the issue...but ultimately I'm not a good enough guitarist to pull it off so I gave up! [/quote] That's because it's a lot easier to be a decent classic rock guitarist than it is to be a decent country guitarist.
  21. [quote name='tredders' timestamp='1493148421' post='3286099'] Cheers Rhys - hope you're well. Lovely bass - will have a think on this one. [/quote] I'm good thanks! Hope you're doing OK. It is a lovely one isn't it? Good price too.
