    Lip Syncing and Computer Backing Tracks

    Backing tracks I'm fine with up to a point, if it is to augment the sound of a live band with elements that could not easily be performed live. Lip syncing is pretty meh though - although I would question whether it is anymore dishonest than auto tune.

    Newtone Diamond Nickel Roundcore vs DR Sunbeams

    Another Newtone user here. Love them on my Dingwall, less harsh than Dingwall's own strings, plus I can get a custom gauge to suit my needs and they are UK made to boot. What's not like?

    Daily Mail and John Deacon

    I believe the correct protocol when buying the Mail is to simultaneously purchase a copy of Razzle magazine. That way, you'll have something to hide it inside and thus avoid shame and potential humiliation when leaving the newsagents.

    What Strings Are Doing it For You?

    I've been ordering custom sets of Newtones for my Dingwall for the last year or so and totally agree, excellent strings and British made to boot. Last well too! La Bella low tension flats on my Lakland 55-94 for some greasy old school thump.... D'addario half rounds on my spectorcore fretless 5 string - these seem to work particularly well with piezo pickups for some reason.

    Hubba Hubba!

    The thing is though, the OP is claiming that's not what he meant, which I find disingenuous at best. If you want to make a leery, boorish nudge- nudge type comment about a girl on a publicly visible forum (which I think is the real point here), at least have the balls to admit it. Or possibly just keep it in your head where it belongs.

    Nail on head. Hubba hubba indeed. FFS.

    Fingers and the audience

    While it's true to some extent that no matter what instrument you play, you will always sound like you (with regards to character, phrasing or whatever), on a crappy bass (or even a good bass with crappy strings) you will never sound as good as you will on a decent quality, well strung instrument. All nuance and subtlety will be lost - a poor instrument will simply not be able to capture all the details that your fingers are (hopefully) producing. Of course this may depend entirely on what style of music you are playing - if you are plodding away on root notes to some three chord fuzz tone dirge, then there probably ain't much room for subtlety/nuance to begin with, so it undoubtedly matters a whole lot less... I suspect this also applies for point 2, i.e. audiences for different types of music will have different levels of awareness as to how good the overall sound of the band (including the bass) is, and will also give/not give a solitary flying fornicate to wildly varying degrees...

    Ah, the naivety of a more innocent era.

    Or this one I found in a charity shop in Liverpool... anyone fancy a spot of self emptying with Father Sean?

    There's a ton of these out there... how about this gem?

    Downloads or a physical product?

    Vinyl for rolling a fat one on and enjoying the occasional evening of nostalgia, CD for listening to new music at home, digital for listening to in and to/from work...

    Does anyone actually LIKE jazz?

    Mmmmm jazz, it's just like the Bonzo's said... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABcNAwytrOY

    Biggest weekend thread

    Beck was fab, excellent band and nice solo spot tribute to Prince with the Raspberry Beret cover. I must admit this has renewed my interest in him, after being disappointed with the Information album about 10 years ago. Manics were pretty good too, in spite of the absent Nicky Wire. Simple Minds were musically OK but Jim Kerr was struggling in my opinion. Other than that, there was nothing of any great interest for me.
