Afternoon All!

I'm a bit late to this one but thought I'd share with you anyway!

I started out on Clarinet and Saxophone (both Yamaha) when I was 5. Unfortunately for my parents, rock / pop took over my musical life when I was 14!

My first bass was borrowed from school during a summer holiday - an unmarked SG Bass copy. My first owned bass which I still have, was a Hohner Jack headless bass which I used to think was very cool Cool

I went through a stage of using a mixture of Fender Precisions and Jazz basses but didn't really like the sounds I was getting, so I moved to Musicman Stingrays. I still have my 1990 black beauty now but don't take it gigging.

I had a lull of about 10 years where I didn't play outside of my music room at home and then I got the urge to play again and have been in our band for nearly 2 years now.

My current basses are Warwick Thumb 5NT, Thumb 5NT Fretless and a Warwick Streamer Stage 1 5 string. I have fallen in love with Warwick basses, they cost a fortune, Mrs Moo hates them because I want to buy another!!

I also have a Rickenbacker 250 guitar, however it has 6 funny thin strings on it which confuses me Confused !!

Cheers,

Moo

Tell Mrs Moo that Bonzodrumz said "it's worth the investment" - your bass sound is cool mate!

Haha, well that's my normal ploy but three basses, a new rig, a new home studio and a load of gear lust gadgets in less than two years has started to wear her patience a bit thin!! But still, that's half of the fun about buying the next thing, convincing Mrs Moo that it's the be all and end all Laughing

Cheers,

Moo xx

With gear it can be a bit like the lottery......... if you don't buy a ticket, you will never win the prize!

And.......... if you win the big music prize I suspect Mrs Moo will think you are the bees knees!

My first guitar was an Encore electric in a Brian May looking style. Thats as far as it went though. The damned thing went out of tune on the first strike of a chord, one set of pick ups, and a volume and tone knob. About as much use as last years almanac!

I'm going to buy one of those slider thingies for my guitar. Any ideas which one I should get? It's got to have really bright leds on it though, 'cos they look the business.

My first guitar was bought as a cribmo present when I was about 17. It was a REALLY old, very crappy Wilson in red. It had a slight Strat style about it. The action was the highest I've ever seen and looking back the whole thing was FUBAR.

When I started work at 19, my very first pay packet took me to Tin Pan Alley to buy a Strat and a practice amp! Very Happy

Can you advise Bat where he might buy "one of those slider thingies for his guitar" - how about an e-bow?

Maybe Batchain needs to take a leaf out of Nigel Tufnell's book; rather than using a "slidy thing" he could just use a violin instead (and tune accordingly).... Wink
