About to play in shorts for the first time! Can I still achieve trouser-flapping volumes..?

    Well, you couldn't use the same one for both eyes. Not unless it was very big.

    I suppose Ray Ban style would fit with the Blues Brothers songs at least. I have aviators though.

    Yes but only as a silly gimmick for me.

    Huge congrats, dude! A great day to have a baby girl, I did the same, albeit 35 years ago.

    Certainly sounds like a dodgy set to me. Not gigging but with regular playing i've had a year out of my last set.

After 2 years of unlined fretless, playing lined fretboard feels like playing a computer game on "Easy" setting :-)

    ... an old bass teacher of mine showed me how to play fretless when I was talking about lined vs plain boards. He turned out the lights and played perfectly in tune like nothing was wrong. I guess that's not bad to aim for lol!

    And which bass did you finally choose ?

    Guide lines are of little use if the stage lighting is against you or the lights are out as mentioned above. I'd go for LED side dots but that's the same difference. It's a distraction from ear training.

One of the most confusing things is to watch a lefty play a right hand guitar upside down. Boggles the mind.

  • jimbobothy's Photo
    A mate of mine plays this way and also uses a normal lefty bass. His brain is better than mine lol!

    You do what you have to. I only had access to a lefty at first but changed to righty to suit my writing hand. Most folk are capable of ambidexterity when needs arise.

    And 'arris' sound?

    May 25 2017 11:56 AM
  • LewisK1975's Photo
    I found his sound certainly not as good as the last time I saw them in the same venue. Nothing 'wrong' with it, but certainly not as clean and punchy as it used to be.

Has anyone had a GK MB500 Fusion amp stolen over past few months? I came across one without a serial (via a pawnshop) and trying to track down whether there is anything untoward that may have happened.... Please let me know.

Oh yes! Dadds now on cam. 6 months since I fitted these flats and just tonight they came on song. Patience is a virtue with fine wine, the lottery and flatwounds it seems...
