In my recent travels in the South West I encountered Glastonbury. What a fucking dump. What kind of FUCKING BARBARIANS don't have a single Starbucks, Cafe Nero or Costa? You're fine if you want crystals, health food and hemp-based sandles but if you want a nice coffee with some light jazz in a comfy seat WITHOUT being fumigated by insence then you're fucked. No wonder the Glastonbury festival barely gets any good bands nowadays.
Adequete punctuation for a point so pointless I won't make a thread about it.
Guitar vs. Bass. I will start off by saying that this is plain retarded, the bass and guitar are meant to work together in a band, it is irrelevent how difficult one is.
How can one instrument be more difficult than another? If you are lucky enough to own a guitar and a bass play the fifth fret of the E string, was one more difficult than the other? NO. What you play is difficult or not, not what you play it on.
If you are encountered by a smug but musically retarded person who says "bass am easier 'cos has less stringses" point out that having less strings would make things more difficult, you wouldn't say to an amutee 'its easier for you to walk because you have less legs' would you? If they think that having larger frets makes it easier, kill them. No one that stupid should pollute the gene pool so kill the rest of their family too.
I've been here nearly a year and a half, I thought I might do a wee bit of blogging. Starting of simply, here is my ideal set of basses
1. A custom fretless Warwick Stryker, bubinga throughout with a tigerstripe fingerboard with side markings and a crudely drawn cock at the twelth fret and greenburst AAAA flamed maple soundboard. Two Seymour Duncan lighting rods with their special fretless tone circuit. The jack would be on the front of the bass, like an SR. 'Factory tuned' C standard with Rotosound Dropzones.
2. A MIA Fender Jazz, 5 string, maple, silverburst, black pickguard. With SDQPs and drop tuners on the B and E strings.
3. An ATK300, exactly the same as my current one but with a drop tuner on the E and a brass nut for extra bite.
4. Rickenbacker 4003, fireglow.
5. Rickenbacker 4003 fretless, jetglow with black pickguard.
6. Ibanez SR5006E
7. Duck Dunn signature Lakland in blue for extra Blues.
8. Buzzard JE, just like the Ox himself used at the Albert Hall where he did his most amazing solo during 5:15.
9. Fitzy's Vampyre, no other will do.
10. An Epiphone Thunderbird, the lowest version so I can work miracles to make it an acceptable bass (hell, even a good bass) just to show Gibson what a bunch of tools they are
