Re: '79 MM Sabre

Thats too freaky. That bass has been playing Jezzas tunes since the 90s... and still is. :rolf:

If you hear any of his old Idiot Son recordings - they were done with the Sabre.

Re: '79 MM Sabre

I used to play with a guy who collected instruments - had original P's, J's a 70's Ray, Strats, Hammond etc.. Every time I opened the case I'd hear a murmer... "You bastard".

That looks like my old girl. I owned that from the mid 90s. The funk is strong in that one.

Re: Talk to me about Double Bass

Yep. Watch your elbow when you play it might be dropping down which will put a bend in the wrist. You also might not be standing with the bass the right way. Make sure you're not standing behind it and see if you can balance it against your body without holding with your hands - this will take some ...

Re: Talk to me about Double Bass

^^ How long have you had the Animas for? I hear they need to be replaced every couple of years. My last set of Animas are about 5yo now I think. They're ok, but they tend to get fragile and frayed after 3 or 4 years. I've had one break before. It was probably older than 5years when it went though. ...

Re: Mastering the fretboard - not!

All stringed instruments were designed for easy pattern playing. Don't beat yourself up.
