When you guys have finalised the date and address, please create a new thread in this Events forum, and I (or Lurksalot) will pin it to the top, and then I'll plug it on Twitter and create an event on Facebook. :)

The December edition of Bass Guitar Magazine (hit my doormat this morning) has a review of the last South East Bash and it sounds pretty impressive, with a lot of useful detail about how it's set up and what goes on.

I can't commit to significant time organising, but I can ask a couple of peeps I know in the Mcr / Sk music network if any of the top bass players they work with would be willing to come and give a master-class or generally hang out, if that would be welcome. (Of course some of the people I'm thinking of might be among us...)

ps see the reviews of SEB here if you haven't already:

Owin, if you go to the NW bass bash would you be taking along your 5 string double ?
im dying to see that, just too see if my hands can cope with a 5, as im on the look out for a doublebass again,
and what the sound is like.
cheers

Hi Guys,

New to basschat, I was discussing almost exactly (but not quit just similar) this, with a bass playing friend the other night.

I have flicked through the convo but can't find if it materialised? no facebook or event links etc.

My affor mentioned friend and I were talking about a bass "get together" rather than a bash.
