Aye up from Wakey

Recommended Posts

Hello there, how's it going? Just joined the forum and have been practicing since summer after not playing for over 20 years. I'm using my hideous old Westfield 5 string with the fat string tuned to E, through a pals guitar practice amp; just playing root notes along to simple music like Sweet Jane and Mull of Kintyre at the moment and still struggling with that and base of the thumb strain from trying to "1 finger 1 fret". On the look out for a Squire Affinity bass pack to mess around with. My likes are simple melodic pop music, 60's French yeah yeah girl and weird psych, electro/dream pop and shoegaze; actually I go through phases of liking anything. Bass players I like are Hooky, Mani and JJ Burnel although I'm pretty much in awe of most bass players when I see live music.

  I hope to learn a lot from the forum; it's already helped me.

Cheers

Andy

Ah good old Wakey. My old stomping ground. I used to go there pretty much every weekend in my early teens, jumping on the train from South Elmsall. I went to college there and also worked there for a while. Had many good night out in the town. I even had my 18th birthday party at Rooftop Gardens on 10p a pint night. Good times!

Hey, thanks for welcomes fellas. Roofies eh? that brings back memories...not all good!. Spent a bit of time in Elmsall and Kirby up to no good as a teen too; Brookies club? Don't get up town these days; I think the scene's changed, especially for "garage" bands. There was Players, Snooty Fox, O'Dees and metal pubs like The Raven, The Chance, Beehive, The Black Rock and The Jockey; All either gone or changed somehow. It was the Greyhound in Ponty for bands wasn't it? Tend to go to the West Riding at Dewsbury now.

  Well, been checking the forum and now know a lot more about Squier P basses and Jazz; probably go for a second hand CV.

Catch you later
