Re: How to start

I thought I might give this a bump with my own experiences. After quite a while of false starts., time-wasting and dead-end playing opportunities on gumtree, I stumbled on open mic nights as another alternative (I'd always thought of them as being more for singer/songwriters). I went to one at a loc...

Re: Countdown

Sting's fretless Musician bass was a highlight for me last night (even if he barely played it :p )

Re: Countdown

I watched tonight and noticed that too. 78 was a little before my time (I was 4) but it's always fun to see what was going on then. It occurred to me Marc Hunter was an earlier Michael Hutchence

Re: power cord for Fender rumble 500 v3

Cool, thanks guys. Electronics was never really my thing. Seemed too easy to be able to just get a generic one and be done with it!

power cord for Fender rumble 500 v3

I'm the proud new owner of a Rumble v3 500 amp and 4 x 10 cab :hyper: . Just one problem - the amp has no power cord! I figure it's just a standard 'jug plug' but can anyone tel me if you can get genuine Fender replacement amp cords? I'e had a look online but can only find generic ones. I'd hate to ...

Re: Inner-Sydney retailers

Guitar Lounge ONLY sells Fender and usually has plenty of stock but the guys that runs the place is a d**k. Really? I haven't had dealings with him apart from a couple of brief phone conversations, but have fantasies about walking in there and spending some of my recent redundancy money :drool: I a...

Re: Inner-Sydney retailers

I gave the surf a miss yesterday and paid my first visit to Downtown yesterday. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Not a huge range of basses and even fewer amps, but might be worth calling ahead to see if they stock anything you're after. I haven't been there but there's also the guitar lounge o...

Re: the end of gigging

Great to see the variety of responses. I started playing bass when I was about 17 in a couple of bands, and when they ran out of steam and I was about 20 I figured it was all over and better to leave it behind. :crazy: I barely touched the bass again for about 18 years then took it up out of the blu...
