Guitarist jumps ship; falls in love on Bass Island.

40+ plus years a guitar player and resisted all that time playing the bass... always loved a good bass line though.

Then I got an invite in 2019 to help out a local band who'd lost their bassist just before going into studio. Absolutely loved it. I'm a much better musician for the experience and we're still rehearsing and recording together.

welcome sir, do we get to hear the recordings? What bass did you play?

 

Thank you Mr. Police. I'm currently cohabiting with a Reverend Sentinel shortie strung with TI flats. 

However, in studio I was on a borrowed LaBella loaded Mex P Bass. I did ok on maybe 3 months playing and a bit of comping I reckon.

Plenty of folk here who dabble (or have done on the past) on the skinny stringed beast.

:D

 

I must admit I sneak off for a bit of a crafty session from time to time and it takes a while for my fingers to stop feeling like bananas 😂

Good morning Mr Dog (or is it Mr SOlitud? or Mr 3? :lol: )

Welcome to our humble abode. Pull up a chair, grab yourself a cup/pint/dram/schooner* of summat and enjoy yourself. Don't forget to check out Guitarchat too. https://www.basschat.co.uk/forum/96-guitarchat/

*other beverage measurements are available

 

"Mr Dog (or is it Mr SOlitud? or Mr 3?"... I have no idea. The name is some dimly-remembered location from a sci-fi novel I read 20 years ago :D

 

Thank you- I will have a go on the auld guitarchat section and hang out with the other heretics. Cheers!

Welcome to the forum @D0gS0litud3

 

Really enjoyed those songs too ☺️

Thanks very much! :D This is pretty light, lounge indie. We are a lot grungier these days. Me and the drummer have clicked on a much heavier groove now. We're minus a guitar player at the moment and I have an HX Stomp so... :D

Thanks very much. That means a lot actually. The fingerstyle stuff I played for years makes me quite a weird player really but it was damn useful when I dropped myself in the deep end for this EP- I could just concentrate on the left hand/ melodic stuff kind of thing.

A familiar story - welcome aboard!
