On reflection,I wonder how I would have fared if I had clicked 'Pay Now' without thinking.Would it have emptied my bank account? Not that I have £17 million,you understand,but My Paypal is directly linked to my bank account.Jeez!

Personally, I would want a bass mag the same as how I would like a TV car show. The criticism that Top Gear has come under is that it hardly reviews cars that everyday people can afford or want and only focus on the extreme supercars. Long gone has the motoring magazing show which a lot of people miss. So when I am looking at buying a car or trying to find details, I have to look over old Top Gear clips or reviews on the internet for cars like Meganes, Pug 207's, Alfa 156's etc. So I think its important that a bass mag not only covers the more unusual boutique basses but also touches on the stuff that people use everyday like Fenders and Squires. You can certainly see more people asking on the forum about pre Korean Warwick Corvettes, Squires, Fenders etc than the high end boutique basses. I just think its important to not miss out on your Ford Focus drivers as well as keeping your Ferrari Enzo drivers happy also :)

Got me thinking you could take a lot from the Top Gear format - Star on a Reasonably Priced Bass anyone? :)

The system in the background is working correctly while the data is displayed incorrectly..so your millions are safe!

We think we've located the problem. If you're able to try again it should now be fixed.

That would be quite fun actually. Fifteen minutes talking about what they have been up to, their first bass and other basses etc followed by one of their famous bass lines played on a cheap nasty bass to see how it fairs. Could be quite fun :)

Couldn't wait for the iPad version to come out, so bought issue 1 just now. Would however expected the delivery to be more or less instant - have waited a good 10min now and the order status still says 'processing'. :)

Aaaarrrgh - silly me, it doesn't seem to work at all on the iPad at present. :)
Oh well, I'm only 1.69 out, have made far worse deals than that.
Do look forward to the iPad version though.

I like that idea. It would be interesting to hear from busy bassists who play regular gigs... it would be easy to relate to and tips and stories could be interesting.

From that post above, this seems easily worth the (Quite small i would say) sum of £1.69 a month. I'll definately be subscribing come payday, as right now i don't even have £1.69 to my name.

He he, me skint too :) I will also be subscribing soon though. It cant be any worse than that Bass Player magazine, which is, what £40 a year ? can it ?

My Feedback

Bass guitars with more than 4 strings
Questioner: How come you never play a 5 or 6 stringer Billy?
Billy Sheehan: "I dont need one, I have my hipshot for lower notes, and I can go to harmonics for higher notes"
Questioner: "do you own any"?
Billy Sheehan: " yes I have two or three, though rarely use them outside an ocassional studio set piece"
"I dont like to use them unless I really have to, as when a guy takes a 5 or 6 string bass into the studio, you see the engineers and producers, sighing and shaking their heads" :) (Smiles)
Billy Sheehan: " I have nothing whatseover against 5 or 6 string basses. I just belive that guys dont give themselves a proper chance on the 4 stringer first."
Questioner: How long is 'a proper chance'?
Billy Sheehan: " At least 20 years" (not smiling here, being serious)

I think you could be onto something here. With the current trend to be away from doing originals and more cover/function bands, I think it would be good to cover this topic.

I like that idea so I put myself forward to be the first victim to share my 24 years of playing :)
Worked my arse off playing every dive bar whilst keeping down a day job to finally getting a deal. Then sueing the record company to then rediscovering bass all over again a few years later amazed at how things have moved on to now back again recording and gigging. So if anyones interested which is probably a big NO :) then I'm up for it :) I'm sure there are quite a few other interesting people here who have an interesting background.
