  1. Yes, and quite right too. 😜
  2. This discussion reminds me of Michael Flanders' remark to the audience in "At the Drop of a Hat", on explaining that the show was being recorded in new-fangled stereo: "So wherever you're sitting now, that's where you'll be on the record."
  3. I once went to see Ray Charles in order to see Diana Krall supporting.
  4. By coincidence, I only recently stumbled on this video too. I think it's great, not least because of the way he mixes the comedic with the despairingly tragic; "dirty stains on history's final page" is a wonderful line. It also reminds me of an old joke about the difference between the American and British views of life - for an American, things are serious, but never hopeless, whereas to a Brit things are hopeless, but never serious.
  5. Well, it's your opinion, and you gave it to us straight, like a pear cider made from 100% pears.
  6. In the seventies, the BBC broadcast an adaptation of Sartre's The Roads to Freedom, which acquired a cult following in our sixth-form. I can't remember a single thing about the characters or story, but the haunting theme song has never left me; La Route Est Dure, sung by the wonderful Georgia Brown.
  7. Ronnie Hazlehurst showing Pink Floyd how it should be done: 😉
  8. Question for the short-scale experts on here. How feasible is it to tune a 30 inch scale bass down to DGCF (without having to use strings so thick that it would require mods to the nut)? Does it make the strings just too floppy?
  9. Recent update from Thomann (apologies if it's already been posted...thread has grown somewhat) https://www.thomann.de/blog/en/an-update-for-our-valued-uk-customers/
  10. Terveisiä! I have fond memories of a trip to Hämeenlinna, just up the road from you, in November 2017 to see Värttinä with Paleface at the Verkatehdas. Had fun going round the castle too!
  11. Feel free to start your own thread about any of the benefits that Brexit has brought to the bass-playing community.
