  2. Singing bassists, what's your set list?

    No we haven't got anything on you tube and our websites is about 4 years out of date - I really must update it as its a bit crap not to really - we should get some decent recordings and videos as well - but we're already booked out until this time next year so it's hard to convince the other two that we need to when we haven't got any spare slots if it generates any new business.
  3. Modern-ish P-Bass £400-£800

    Have a look at some second hand lakland skyline Bob glaubs - they're very very good
  4. Singing bassists, what's your set list?

    [quote]Agreed, but some very dodgy decade allocations there ...[/quote] well yeah (blush) it's something I need to sort out on the website We normally do 2x 1.5 hour sets or an hour first set and 2 hour second - lots of the fifties songs are actually really short 2-2.5 minutes and we try to go straight from one to another, few medleys etc. But normally 3 hours plus a couple of encore songs. Sometimes we play shorter sets if a club wants us to play for a shorter time. I share lead and backing with the guitarist so we both sing all night. Fine when you haven't got a cold I love it as it lets you run some themes through the set as well, rock and roll phase, 80s phase, everyone's drunk and wants to sings along phase etc - we like doing a juke box every so often as well where we put a menu on each table and people can tell us what they'd like us to play (2nd set) - we also do on the fly requests which are a lot of fun - on song is awesome for this, real seat of your pants stuff, but you have to be bloody careful we're all old farts that have played most songs people request anyway.

  6. tolerable Christmas songs

    Duh! Wombling Merry Xmas of course!
  7. Most overrated bands

    Guns and Roses - I like Slash, -Good Guitarist -and Velvet Revolver, Snake Pit was ok as well but GNR just churned out a load of bland contrived songs and covers. There were far better bands in the day that were overlooked just because GNR were "cool" and seem to still be. Oh and any band that features dragons*, simpering maidens or long meandering faffy songs. And flute solos. Or mention Osiris and the Serengeti, or making it to the shore and throwing away paddling implements for extended periods of time. Edit - *Except Dio. I like Dio. I think Iron Maiden mentioned dragons a few times but I think they got away with it.
  8. How to get a Jazz to sound Iike a P or close

    I love the look of jazzes and I've had a few, you can try putting everything through the front PU and roll off all the treble, it's kind of P bass ish but it never creams through the mix like a P does. I guess that's why I've ended up selling all the ones I've had
  9. Fender P bass MM 2005

    It was, as with all fender basses, a typical fender year with some great basses and some complete m***ers. Most of the MiM P basses have been fine, a couple have been outstanding - one of the outstanding ones was a 2004/5 that I wish I'd held onto. Usual rule applies either take a punt and flog it on if you don't click with it or try it first
  10. Where are the acoustic fingerpickers these days?

    Well Richard Thompsons just released a new album, does that count?
  11. I had a couple of BLXs, a commando, two 715s and I found them all to be bloody heavy and seriously underwhelming in terms of power and sound. I think the equivalent peaveys of the day were and are far better
