Re: BASS / AMP PICTURE THREAD :: Get your cameras ready!

O, yeah, please excuse the high register in that shot. The bass spent the first decade in Colorado and the second decade with me in Auckland. Our band celebrated our 30th Anniversary gig last November - I never missed a gig except the one in 2008 when I was in hospital and Beagle came to the rescue ...

Lighting

Whats your lighting rig? We have 2 T-bars with 3 or 4 par cans on each, usually each side of the stage as far to the front as I can manage without a drunk running into them. I operate them with an 8 socket multi-box. We have 1 LED color change par can set to " slow change" (although this is too fast...

Re: Delirium Fretlesscylius - does this affect you?

I and therefore my band mates suffered a bad case of this about 15 years ago. I bought a maton jb iv fret less to 3 or 4 gigs bout 15 years ago and instantly noticed my guitar players reaching for their tuning pegs frequently, they were diplomatic about it but diagnosis of DF was quickly made. I did...

Re: Castor wheels for 4x10

Get a dolly instead, just a straight plywood job with heavy duty castors, saves attaching/removing castors at gig as 4x10s sound better flat to the floor, also useful for moving peripherals and fellow band mates will love you as long as they can use it as well.

Re: magazine

I used to get "Bassplayer" regularly until the issues got thinner and thinner and more full of advertising and then a quick turnover of editor-in-chiefs put me off - I have a whole stack of them in dusty corner of my room which I might donate to my sons college music dept. but I don't buy them anymo...

Re: Playing by ear

playing by ear is probably more difficult today given the online tutorials for songs you want to learn - at the risk of sounding like an old fart, the only way to cop a riff in my day was to play the record over and over and I'm sure this way to learn was more beneficial than the express 'you tube' ...

Re: Bliss by Th' Dudes Bass Tab?

I remember setting up for a gig and the first thing the dude who booked us said to us was "I don't want you guys playing Bliss" probably thought it would start a riot - oh dear.

Re: Advice on bass setup

Let a tech sort it, low action and light touch (something Im forever struggling with) is good but the Musicmans volume dial is only a pinky away for dynamics.

Re: Brian Bromberg

Wood is great, especially the solo on "For my father" . Wood 2, not so good apart from his great whistling on "Four brothers" , and his "Metal" album, I didn't like. Brian is a magnificent bass player and let's get away from the "support the song" thing, when your at home your playing for pleasure, ...

OGA

Does anyone else get OGA? no it's not an OHS thing. It's what our band call Own Gig Anxiety. It's what happens when the band member that books the band has high value personal expectations eg, playing to family and friends and hoping for a perfect performance from band mates. This leads to said band...

Re: DI Box - who uses one?

If you Di to the pa with standard jack cable it could hum but if you are using an xlr cable you shouldn't have a problem.
