  1. Singing-yes, talking-no. You know when you're trying to be 'cool' by introducing a song, while playing the Intro? Can't do that. I used to have to talk while the Guitar and Drums were quietly starting off, then, when I'd finished talking, start playing and singing. I found myself talking 'in rhythm' with the song, and I've never been able to stop doing it.
  2. I always used 'Pound Shop' rechargeables on mine, and they fitted everything. Back to Passive Basses now though, so no problems for me anymore.
  3. Too contentious a Topic for me to write the reply I want. I think it best if I leave it alone.
  4. None - I went Fishing! Happy at the moment, but as usual, who knows what the Future might turn up. 😉
  5. When you eventually get to see your Surgeon, try and go for 'c' in your choices. I had it done to my Fretting hand 15 years ago, and it's still working (almost) perfectly. 😎
  6. I stopped having fun, and it all became about the money for me. I felt I wasn't being paid enough to deal with the antics of ar*ehole "musicians", ar*ehole Punters, and ar*ehole Venue owners, so I retired. Happy now. 😎
  7. "Collection Only" Kills a lot of Ebay sales, unless you actually want something near where you live.
  8. Not to me, I couldn't arrange a Courier to save my life! 🙁

  10. ...or....use this, to show your original pics. ;-) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-embedded-imag/ogipgokcopooepeipngiikdkpmcpkaon
  11. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1505213618' post='3370237'] Wow, living in a touring van with your gear is a pretty hard-core commitment. I wouldn't have done that even as a kid! [/quote] We did it. We had a lump of foam, about single bed size, that laid across the PA cabs behind the seats, and took turns sleeping on it. The other three got the B&B for the night, but there was always one in the van, with a couple of broken mic stands within easy reach. A bit of old backdrop hung from the roof for privacy (and draught exclusion) and Robert was indeed your Auntie's Husband.
  12. [quote name='Bbiigg Kev' timestamp='1488644562' post='3250749'] Hi. I have a Dutch Mrs, we spend our time between UK and Rotterdam, where about in Holland are you ? [/quote] He's in Holland, Michigan, Kev. USA!
  13. If you go back, the Drummer will constantly mock you for ever. It will come to a head again, and you will leave again. You have been a 'disruptive influence' to all their Big Ideas, and you will never be allowed to forget it. It may seem like a Cultural Desert as far as Music is concerned, but hings can change overnight. Stay away!
  14. A short while ago, a Bass Player in a Band I know, had booked a weekend off, for a trip to his Caravan Park. His car broke down, so they couldn't go. He got a lift from the Guitarist, and watched me do his Gig! I'm in the same area as Warwickhunt, and had the same problems at times, but there are SOME good'uns out there.
