Re: Embedding Photos/Videos (and other media) on the forum just got a major facelift

FWIW - I posted via photobucket the old fashioned way on Saturday without any issues. :thumbup: The old photobucket way will continue to work, until you reach whatever quota they've set for 3rd party site embedding. If you use it infrequently, you'll be fine - if you use it frequently, and across m...

Re: cctv with 2 laptops

The lag on any of those traditional videochat services will be significant, since it will still be heading out to the internet, and back to each laptop. Compound that with you guys likely sharing an internet connection, and you'll probably get significantly reduced video quality too. You want to kee...

Re: Frequent truss adjustments

This reminds me of a discussion slowlearner linked on Tb about tonewoods (seriously). The less wood used, the more it flexes and makes a difference to your sound (Jaco's jazz). The more wood used, the less flex you get and the less difference it makes on your tone (Jamerson's P). I expect that has a...

Re: Birth year Bass!

Hey congrats, that rick is a beauty! I've got the same birth year as you @specitim, and I've been having a similarly difficult time deciding what I would like if the opportunity came up. After reading up on Anthony Jackson and when he started pushing 5 string builds, I've decided if I can find a 5er...

Re: What Makes John Bonham Such a Good Drummer ?

I really enjoyed this too - I haven't listened to ledzep for ages, made me want to dive back into their catalogue. It also dawned on me yesterday while I was listening to Killswitch Engage, this is precisely why I enjoy listening to Killswitch Engage so much. Very similar drumming following guitar s...

Cleary, I think you just described that weird ergonomic bass with the twisted neck.

All my great ideas get stolen by someone who's done it already ;)

Is this the one?

Re: Prefrences for fretboard radius.

When you say "bigger" radius, do mean a flatter board? (just clarifying mostly for my own understanding) I'm curious to know if anyone has done an inverted or even non-standard radius guitar/bass? For sheer mechanics of reach, it seems like rounding the board so your strings that already require the...

Re: RE Silent Practise

If money were no object, I would be getting on the Phil Jones bighead too - Money is an object for me though, so here are my (some ghetto) recommendations ;) Note, all of these are standalone too - if you want to go straight into a laptop ala maxgroover's suggestion, or via something like the Rocksm...

Re: What are YOU listening to right now? - PART TWO

I went back to Coldplay's first album, Parachutes. Haven't listened to it for years, still know all the words and had great fun belting the tunes out on the way to work 🤣

Re: Body vs Kit vs Build from blank

thanks for the advice guys. I've had a preliminary look at the PitBull kit website. Thinking one (cheaper) kit to check out the process and maybe try up and down a couple of times before trying anything special. I was keen on the SG bass kit but concerned that it is a set neck. Am I correct to feel...

@Camzh thanks for posting those two - the first one could definitely benefit from some bass imo, second one was definitely bringing more in that Dept :)

Your keyboard is configured for UK layout - it needs to be configured for US.
Look for keyboard settings in whatever operating system you use, it should be a trivial change...
