    Best Female Bassists - Top 25

    I'm not so sure. Many years ago, a female friend who was sick of queuing for the ladies toilets at T in the Park, bought a pack of devices to enable her to pee standing up (they look a bit like a kazoo). She said it took a wee bit of practice in the shower, but she mastered it. She used the device at the gents peeing trough the following year ... it freaked a few of the guys out! My wife has also used these when we've been travelling - she says they are much better than squatting in some of the dodgy toilets you find in some places ...

    London Bass Guitar Show 2019

    I'd happily travel down to attend both shows ... it will be my son's birthday on the Sunday (he's learning guitar ... and becoming a bit of a guitar geek) ... gives me the perfect reason for going 🙂

    Van der Graaf Generator

    VDGG are superb live ... particularly in their current trio format ... I was blown away by Childlike Faith in Childhood's End when I saw them earlier this year. I must admit to being impressed by Hugh Banton's bass lines ... especially because, live, he plays them with his feet while he's playing keyboards. I have enough trouble with just my two hands as it is ...

    Underrated Bass players

    [quote name='clarkpegasus4001' timestamp='1317315063' post='1389423'] +2.....MT is a friend of mine. He borrowed my bass for his album Argus Through The looking Glass - Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash. [/quote] I'm hardly jealous at all I saw MTWA in Glasgow a couple of years ago ... they were fantastic. MT's bass is as much a part of the classic Wishbone Ash sound as the twin guitars.

    How did you discover Basschat

    For me it was a Google search back in 2005 when I was looking to take up bass again after a 20 year hiatus. I came across Bassworld, registered and bought my Cort A4. Then my son was born early, I've had to work away from home most weeks and I've hardly had a chance to play the bloody thing Not playing much doesn't stop the GAS though ...

    In no particular order: Geddy Lee Chris Squire JJ Burnell Phil Lynott Martin Turner (Wishbone Ash) I also have a soft spot for Ian Anderson's idiosyncratic bass playing on Stormwatch!

    Quick Q. about Thomann

    [quote name='craigjf1969' post='124040' date='Jan 20 2008, 06:55 PM']What sort of fees do the credit card companies charge for conversion???? [/quote] Up to 2.75%, depending upon your credit/debit card provider. I recently got Nationwide credit and debit cards because they don't charge any commission (which is great for using the hole in the wall when you're abroad).

    Ibanez SR900

    I'd also consider a Cort Artisan A4 which I believe is made in the same factory to an almost identical spec. When I bought mine I played both the SR900 and the A4. They were virtually identical but the A4 simply felt better in my hands. It was also £100 cheaper!
