Why did I stop playing this Bass?

I'm sure many of us have a Bass that for whatever reason (or even no reason) we haven't played for a while, and when we drag it out we wonder why the heck we stopped using it. I have a couple, and the reason is usually the sexy new Bass we got that became a habit. Last Sunday I dragged out my old Fr...

Ended up getting Mobile sheets. Great to be able to display two pages side by side.

Anyone in Perth do Plek setups? I'm curious to try it.

Is there anyway of inserting from Instagram with JUST the pic and not all the other fluff, links to my Instagram, etc?

Re: Show us your gigs.

A couple of weeks ago at the Ellington, in Perth. Performed Clapton’s 461 Ocean Boulevard album in it’s entirety, then a set of other songs associated with Clapton. Full house - not bad for a Monday night.

That’s Bill Blissett on Keys.

Vale Fats Domino.

Just heard Fats Domino has passed. He is the musician that really got me started. Yeah I was the weird kid in 1st year high school that was diggin' seriously on the music of a black piano player from New Orleans.

What "easy" songs are busting your chops?

I’m charting out the Carole King song Smackwater Jack at the moment. It’s straightforward, but a couple of the runs are busting my 'nads. Not the actual notes, but getting them smooth and sitting in the song. I’ll get them, it’s just a matter of over 'n' over 'n' over... Just idle curiosity - any of...

I've got a Fralin 10% overwound split coil in my '54 reissue and it thumps nicely.

Re: Android software for sheet music, lyrics, etc.

MobileSheets looks like definite contender. I've downloaded the free version and had a bit of a play. I'll give it a bit more of a look later tonight.

Re: Android software for sheet music, lyrics, etc.

My eventual plan is to see which one works best/simplest for my needs and use that one exclusively for gigs and strip all the other software off.

Android software for sheet music, lyrics, etc.

I've been using Onsong on my iPad for my lyrics, but just got a Samsung tablet and I wonder what software you guys use for your music. Ideally it would handle lyrics and sheet music, with the ability to import Word .doc, ,jpeg, PDF, as well as create and charts easily. Doesn't need to handle notatio...
