Good call, Pawel..

Will ask around to see if anyone's available and willing to do a lesson for us.

It does need a bit of narrowing down though, so perhaps people could suggest some topics that would be really useful to have covered in a bass lesson?

A few years ago, Jake, a.k.a. jakenewmanbass, did a lesson for us at the West Sussex mini-Bash and that was great!

Count me in too! :)

What about asking Paul Geary or Dave Swift to do a lesson (really enjoyed their talk at the show a few years ago)?

It's a really easy going format on the day normally...

Come along, bring some of your gear if you want to, chat with other Basschatters if you want to, listen to other people play, try out some new gear if you want to, have a jam in the Jam Room if you want to, etc, etc..

An keen interest in 'all things bass' and a very friendly vibe is the order of the day really. ��
Right - it's in my calendar!
I might bring along my '64 Ric for an outing.

Good idea; I'm not sure who has an 'in' with Paul or Dave, but if someone could put in a word, that'd be great?

Paul Turner is a former customer at BassGear, part owned by Molan - see if he has any leverage.

That was my thought too. Either a geeky effects chat or a looping masterclass. I know Steve from way back. Happy to drop him a line too!

PS planning to be there too!

I'd definitely be up for this. I've been 'umming' and 'arghing' over getting some or not.

What about asking Rhino to chat about his life in the Quo? He's a regular attendee. Or Neil Murray? He's a Basschattter, tho ,I guess mostly it's BC for bass sales

The other thought I had, though I don't have personal links to him, was someone like Lol Cottle. He must have a few stories to tell. Or Mo Foster... he's not short of an anecdote.

hi all! thanks so much for thinking of me, I really appreciate it. I've had a couple of messages over on FB about this.

Bottom line is, I'd love to do it, but as a non-car owner, I'd have to rent one for the weekend and drive all my stuff down to Surrey. So it'd cost me £80-100 to be there, and I'd not be able to teach at all that day. So as much as I'd love to, if there's no expenses available, I just can't afford to. :(

Hi Steve

Thanks very much for you message explaining your situation and though we'd love you to be able to join us on the day, we completely understand that it isn't possible for you to do..

Whereabouts are you based by the way?

Maybe there's another one of the regional Basschat Bashes taking place nearer to you that you'd like to visit..

All the best,

Nik

Good ideas there Trevor..

Rhino attended last year's bash but I think it was the first he'd been to.

And I know that Lol Cottle spoke at the Herts Bash about 3 years ago IIRC, so maybe Mick's got a link there we can try?

Mo Foster's a good call too - has anyone got any links?

We did a cab shoot out 2 years ago run by Lozz which was good.. No harm in doing another one if it's got a different angle to it perhaps?
