Re: Let's hear your band.

It's not all me, but I played most of the bass on the album and I'm back playing with her again.

The line on "Dr Phil" is my fave.

Re: Most Innovative Bass Players in Rock

John Paul Jones - besides writing most of LedZep's riffs, he consistently mixed his playing between grooves, melodic ostinati and fills. Most of what he did has yet to be eclipsed even by players like Billy Sheehan. I don't mean to put Billy down, but JPJ was playing with the worlds leading rock gui...

Re: ATTENTION METAL HEADS!!!!

in 1988, I went to my first concert (wasn't good either) and watched Niki Sixx from Motley Crue try and snap a spector in half.... He didn't succeed... the bass survived 10mins of solid beatings!

cool clip and I like the song too.

btw, it's a mustang. probably couldn't get a P in the car without smacking people in the head. I can't tell you how many times I've hit other people/instruments with bass headstocks. :/

Re: Bassists Never Discussed ??

Re Jack Casady, I think he's not spoken about much (although bass player mag has done interviews) coz his style of playing is kind of frowned upon these days. If you get what I mean. Was watching him in the Woodstock Movie last year and I kept thinking, 'if one of my students played like that, I'd c...

Who do you wish you could play as well as?

OK, so you can play. Maybe you can play really well. But most of us have a someone we wish we could get near in terms of technique, phrasing, soloing style, gear, etc. Tell us who that player is. Now I know this is a bass forum, but lets open it up to any sort of muso. After all, most of the great b...

Re: Suggestions for a very light weight combo?

seen these. I bought a small acoustic for a boss a few years back. AWESOME. I've played through this with a ATK 5 and it was well up to it.

Re: Anyone round here have a Basspod? What do you use it for?

I've still got an original basspod (v1). Used it as a DI straight into the PA, the cover band I was in at the time wasn't using any backline. So it was pretty cool to rock up to a gig with only Bass and the Pod in hand. I had no complaints with its features as fx unit or DI. I never did use it to i...
