  1. RS66 sets no longer have silk at the ball end for this very reason. Is this an old set?
  2. Can you get away with it? I have gigs shortly after my return and would like to practise. Have not yet been brave enough to broach the subject - it's alwyas been a "No!" before!
  3. I think not taking drugs on any flights ever is rather sensible advice. As is not having anything whatsoever to do with drugs of course.
  4. With a 4pm start and big queues expected, it might be difficult to make it back to Shepherd's Bush for the Steve Hillage gig.
  5. Not an issue if you ensure the bass hangs at the same position when standing or sitting.
  6. Pressing down directly onto the fret. Compare the sound just behind the fret to on top of it. It's got a muted quality.
  7. Amongst the numerous discussions about methods of muting, be they manual or mechanical, I've never seen mention of fingering notes by pressing directly on the fret, which I find quite effective for a particular type of muted sound. Anyone do this?
  8. A bass solo on a TV show?
  9. On the 20th anniversary of his death, I sneaked Jaco's melody from "A Remark You Made" into "Fight For Your Right To Party" at a pub gig in Swindon. Dozens of people noticed and came up to tell me afterwards. Part of this is a lie.
  10. His collection has grown by approx 40 since the book.
  11. I struggle to get the drummer to use one.
