  1. “Hypersonic Missiles” by Sam Fender. On CD cos I’m old. Not many of these young nippers worth listening to these days, but Sam does it properly, with proper guitars and an actual band and everyfink. And he plays a Fender. 😊
  2. Also available as a t-shirt here: https://gsdesigns.teemill.com/product/20-iconic-bass-guitars/ 😊
  3. I still have a few of these left folks... :)

     

  4. Bought this from my guitarist friend's brother in-law, pretty immaculate, it's actually the first bass I've owned with a maple board since my first ever bass (a 90's Sunn Mustang by Fender) way back in 1994. I used to have the white/rosewood version of this. I thought they were both based on the 70's precisions, with the neck dimensions somewhere between a P and a Jazz, but this has got a definite "proper" P profile - feels fairly chunky and nothing like my old white one. Not complaining though... Not bad for £100. 😁
  5. Just bought a Squier VM P-bass in amber for a hundred squids! Huzzah! :)

      Ooh, that’s really nice!  I don’t have a precision....yet.

       

      Was it a new or 2nd hand purchase?

      Second hand. My guitarist’s brother in-law was selling it. 😊

  6. The only experience I’ve had with Jackson’s is my old guitarist had one, and he always had the bass on his amp turned up too high... 😁 Went into my local Crack Converters a few weeks ago to get some euros (their exchange rate has always been more favourable than anywhere else) and there is a Kelly Bird bass hanging on the wall for £220. This is the same bass that was there last time I went in. Which was 2 years ago.😳 If I had the funds I would pull the trigger on one of those 5ers, no hesitation. 😊
  7. I'd have that white 5er in a heartbeat. You know what i like the most? The fact that the P pickup is the same size on both parts of the cover. Does my OCD no good at all when I see Fender 5 string P's with the upper part of the cover bigger than the lower part... And thank god that pointy headstock has gone too.
  8. Mark King for me. All of those fantastic slap and fingerstyle lines he came up with throughout the 1980s really are the reason I wanted to pick up a bass guitar in the first place. Let's not be shy here - the man is a pioneer. 😎
  9. Michael Hutchence was another one that came from nowhere. If someone is ill or old it’s almost like it’s ok that they’ve passed, that they’re no longer suffering. When they die alone in a hotel room, accidentally or not, that makes it so much more saddening.
  10. Pretty much all those deaths in 2016 starting with Bowie. Subconsciously you think “well, that’s our major celebrity passing of the year”. Then Prince went. Wow. George Michael was a bigger shock I think because at that point in the year we must all have been thinking “thank god this year is nearly over”, then George went. Chris Cornell, Keith Flint and more recently Boon Gould really affected me because these were MY musical icons. I hope they’ve found peace.
  11. Have a quick read of this, then PM me if you're still interested please mate. Cheers! 😎
  12. I still have some copies left, just in case anyone is interested...:)
  13. Credit where it's due - I've tried playing bass left-handed and I'm useless at it, so hats off to Macca there. 😁
  14. Got meself an audio interface with a software bundle (Pro Tools/Ableton). Let the bass recording shenaningans commence. Once I've worked out how to use it all...

      Good luck. It topok me a whoel weekend to get my head around Ableton Lite and produce  an awful track that only proved I could get drums, keyboad bass and guitar all happening at (approximately) same time...

      Cheers guys, I’ve been messing around with FL Studio for years but have never played bass or guitar on any of my stuff, I’ve always used the presets and pasted the notes in, which can be incredibly tedious. Hoping to get going at the weekend. 😊

  15. Lucky enough to see them 3 times. Whether you like them or not, Flint was an iconic frontman and an electrifying performer. A very sad loss.
  16. Hi all, As the possibility of joining a tribute band has come up, I was wondering if any BC’ers have some experiences they’d like to share? Good and bad, funny and sad - let’s have it. 😊
  17. Yep. Sharing musical duties with a DJ at a local community club, playing through until 1am though... Happy new year BC chums.
