Another refugee....

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Like about 200 others I just jumped ship from TalkBass today. Been peering over the hedge for a long while so thought I should become a fully paid up member. I've been playing bass for about 5 years, before that I played g****r and keys in various go-nowhere bands. Then I migrated to the bass and never looked back. Playing in three bands ATM, a gigging covers band (60s soul, R&B and party-type music), a funk band which I started up just before lockdown (doh!) and a jazz quartet ( to drag me out of my comfort zone). I play Yamaha TRB fretless for jazz, a TRBX 305 for funk and a self build p type bass for a more classic vibe. I play through a Markbass 500 Tube and 2 Vanderkley 112 EXTs and have an always-off dx166 compressor. Looking forward to lots of interesting bass chat!

I jumped over here when they banned me a month ago. Now their building burned down. Coincidence...? :)

 

I gotta say, I have had a good laugh, and a nod since finding out about it.

You like telling us all that you were banned... posting rubbish like that will get you kicked out of here, too.

It was a 30 day ban for "trolling." someone responded to a post of mine, and I replied back. They called that trolling because it was off topic. I had a few points on my record already, so that one probably just put me over the "suspension" limit. That's all. Ban was lifted on the 23rd.
