Hey guys,
I posted on here a while go but since then my guestlist has grown quite a bit I thought I'd start a new thread in case some of you might like to know about a Podcast/YouTube channel I publish called Bass Lessons Melbourne - Player Profiles.

I interview local and touring bassists and publish the discussion as a youtube video and an audio only podcast episode. You can find the videos here:

And the podcast here:
Apple Podcasts

Spotify

Podomatic

Stitcher

In the meantime check out this episode with the legendary Leland Sklar :)

Great interview, Lee is one of my heroes and I grew up listening to his playing although was not aware of it at the time. A lovely guy and some great anecdotes too.

Believe it or not( small world detail), a guy I know in the next village to me in remote Somerset is one of the Tour Managers for Phil C, although he's not doing this Australian Tour.

With a nod to the McCartney thread. . . . check out 14:30. . . . . "I found the Beatles, and boom, everything changed overnight!"

Lee Sklar is one of the more inspirational bassists out there. I first noticed him with James Taylor and I wore my Mud Slide Slim album out trying to get those bass runs into my head.

Thanks so much for posting that.  There is a man who knows exactly what a bass guitar is for and how it fits into an ensemble and gives to the song.  Love his sense of humour but am I glad I didn't have to lip read!

I am a long-time subscriber to your channel and loved your interview with Tom Kennedy. It was one of the most inspirational interviews I have watched in a long time.

Hi John

That’s so great to hear! I’m really glad you’re enjoying the interviews, Tom was especially awesome to hang out with and absolutely blew me away with his humble musicality. I’ll keep trying to put decent content out there, feel free to help spread the word!

      Hi everyone, 


      this pick up came off my Fender Telecaster Bass from 1968 and It's a perfectly working, rare and original part from Fender's CBS years. It comes with height regulation springs and earth wire.
       
      It sounds super warm and with natural mids, exactly what you'd expect from the Telecaster bass.
      you can hear some of it in action here and here

      Also, I have a video available of the pickup being test metered, showing a reassuring 0 (circuit closed therefore everything working),

      you can check it out here

       
      Get in touch,
       
      Matteo

      For sale is a Panda Audio Future Impact v3 Bass Synth.
      Bought the pedal in May 2020 and has only seen use at home. Never rehearsed or gigged with the pedal so is in excellent condition, as can be seen in the photos.
      These are very powerful, very versatile synth pedals. Based off of the original Akai Deep Impact pedal and famed for its use by Chris Wolstenholme of Muse.
      A tonne of info on the FI v3 here: http://pandamidi.com/bass-guitar-synth/
      Bought new for €299, open to sensible offers.
      Cash on collection preferred from South East London.

      So it seems like there are not a lot of short scale fretless basses around, but if I can find a decent one within my budget limit I sort of ponder on buying one in the near future.
      I'll like it to be max 30" scale length, preferably be a 4 string, and my budget limit would be about 400£, but I'd prefer cheaper, as long as it is still decent (I would suspect a pickup upgrade down the line being necessary anyway in this kind of price class).
      Does such a bass exist?
      All suggestions are welcome.
