Feck knows what's going on...

I've no ‘moji reactions left... (Spunked them all out, over these many great musical suggestions...) It's as though the mods get pleasure from controlling how much one can react... Well!!! I can still use symbols to create faces!!! 

🙂

You'll never take that away from me!!

 

 

...and then this...

(Can't seem to find the Red Hot Chilli Peppers link, but...)

That guitar intro riff is completely ripped off by Flea on rhcp-around the world!!!...

Anyone?!.   No?!... Anyone?...

 

“Shame on you Flea, shame!!"

Wow, yes... I wonder whether he did it as a tongue in cheek homage?

No more TLRT's.

Love Budgie too. Very ramjamesque sounding and built. Reminds me also of Randy California's Spirit. Who was there first ?

According to Wiki  both Budgie and Spirit were formed in 1967 ...so it seems it was a draw😀

Yes, that's Julian Cope with The Teardrop Explodes. Saw them in the 80's, but have seen Julian Cope many times for the Saint Julian tour. He wasn't playing bass on stage anymore, except for some Teardrop Explodes tunes when he played the bass, ... because he was climbing everywhere...

Remember this :

Mr Burke Shelly  of the band , Budgie Ladies and gentlemen

Totally agree - hence why I quoted them on the Bands You've Seen thread....Budgie supported Uriah Heep and they blew them away...I concur young man...

Since we're doing pics and vids, here's Emerson Lake and Palmer's last bit of "Karn Evil 9", called "3rd Impression", live in 1974, with aforementioned Greg Lake on bass and throat.
Me, I lurves it despite Emerson's eternal sloppy playing.

Here's one for current-gen prog fans - Mariusz Duda from Riverside:

Have done the lead vox/bass thing myself in a couple of bands, always satisfying to nail both parts without compromising either.

Unfortunately no video evidence exists (at least not in a digital format) to back up these claims. Plus I have a rubbish voice.

Arturo Bassick, so cool he even has Bass in his surname!

And a very nice chap as well, much funnier than his surly looks would sugges.

Can’t believe it took 3 pages to bring Glenn Hughes up.

Chris Kosnik - The Atomic Bitchwax is awesome at both.

Mark Hoppus, Kim Deal, Dusty Hill, Tal Wilkenfeld

But 4 pages in - dUg Pinnick not yet mentioned- the man is a legend

Er ... Roger Waters?

I thought about him, but I'm not sure he qualifies on either point. 😈

      Here for sale is my MIM 2013 Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, this is the version still with the Badass Bridge, only flaw that he as is on transportation once got bumped and the varnish on the strap button cracked as well on the bottom. 
        Will ship it with a pair of Schaller straplocks   About shipping, will ship to Europe and U.K, shipping cost will be determined by UPS, use them on a fair amount and their work with my packages has been stellar. 
        I am a user of this forum for a few years and this is the first time i am selling something in this platform, therefore there is no reviews on myself, in case of doubt you can pm me and will show my reverb reviews no worries at all. 
        cheers

      Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
      Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
      Scale: 34"
      Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
      Top: coco Bolo
      Back: Coco Bolo
      Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
      Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
      Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
      weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
      Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
      LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
      Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
      Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
      This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:
      https://www.dropbox.com/sh/huwja8inhg3pt5e/AAAZ_-yhsAWuU_Zi-cx5C75fa?dl=0
       
      Price says 6000 pounds but it's actually 6500 euros, just conversion is different every day.
       
      Also check my feedback page:

      New video lesson where I show you how to play a bass line and arpeggios at the same time. 
      Learn to master the 9th arpeggio & get a workout at the same time!
       
    • By greghagger
      Learn the bass line from The Police classic, ‘Message In A Bottle.’
      The main riff is so fun to play and I love the Reggae inspired chorus bass line. 
      There is a free PDF with the video lesson.  Choose between standard notation or Tab versions.
