  1. I currently have a Fender P bass but would like a new sound. Would a FX box be able to give me a Music Man sound? i.e Chic or would I need a new bass which is out of the question for the time being. Thanks Gareth
  2. I've tried working out this rift from a song which is very repetitive but very groovy and catchy but I must be tone deaf i am struggling big time , I cant seem to get the knack of it but it is my first attempt. I was wondering if anyone could help me out and work it out for me thanks [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdKCSKsaTU4"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdKCSKsaTU4[/url] The song starts about 1min15sec
  3. When I record my bass guitar using Cubase AI 5 the sound is delayed :?: Which makes recording my self very difficult as you can imagine. I am using a Yamaha audiogram 6 which AI 5 came free with it. The spec of my laptop is 1.00 GB RAM Intel R T1400 1.73GHZ Processor. Thanks.
  4. Does anyone know of any bass guitar maintenance courses in the south west? cheers.

  6. I have been trying to find some new band to listen to in the style of Jamiroquai, Brand new heavies, Steve Wonder or perhaps some Soul Band? Anybody now of any new, up and coming band which are worth a listen? any stuff on you tube? Cheers
  7. What the best and CHEAPEST way to listen to a recording say on CD and play along with it BUT listening to both through my headphones. I have got a old mixer I used to use in my DJing days. Its a mixer which use with decks if that helps. I've tried running my bass through the microphone input and getting some leads that go from microphone input to red and white outputs (sorry cant remember the correct terms so I'll just explain what they look like) but cant seem to hear either. Whould i have to use a studio type mixer to give my bass more power for the DJ mixer to hear it so to speak (my bass is passive). Would the cheapest option be to buy a programe for my Laptop which will be able to do this?
  8. I've been having lessons since about March. First I worked on some 12 bar blues, octive playing and some then for a month or so a finger fitness programe. I have just finished learning Deep Purple - Black Night and I'm starting on Rose royce - Car Wash. I enjoyed the finger fitness programe but if Im honest it was a bit borring at times but had to be done. Finally it feels like Im getting somewhere.
  9. I was feeling a bit guilty so to speak about getting extra enthusium from getting a new bass but at least im not the only one lol
  10. I've just bought my first, what I would call expensive bass. A Fender 'P' Bass MIJ 1995. I used to have a 'Black' bass only cost £80 off the shelf and when I used to play about 10 years ago a Encore. So compared to my previous bass it is a major upgrade. I cant stop playing it. I finally know what people mean when they say a bass feels right. Anyway Do most people get an extra amount of enthusiasm from obtaining a new bass? there again it might be becuase I've nearly nailed my first song this time around.
  11. Im about to buy my first semi expensive bass. Im currently using a cheap 'Black' bass which I bought for £80 bargin but time for a upgrade. I've tried a few and feel that a Fender P bass japanese 1995 for £495 and wondering will it keep its value well?
  12. I prefer Mark King becuase I think the sound and feel to his stuff is polished. Thats not to say I dont like Flea as well.
  13. [quote name='4000' post='809509' date='Apr 17 2010, 03:59 PM']Nobody is really better than anybody else. Sure, some guys are technically better than others (which usually means they can play more difficult things, or possibly more subtle, nuanced things) but in the end it all comes down to taste and context. Mark King is the best at being Mark King, and Flea the best at being Flea. Each is the best in their respective bands. Thats all you can really say.[/quote] You couldn't ask for a better answer
  14. If I want to start giging what size AMP will I need and how much do they cost? The venue say a average size pub.
