    Been trying to learn the little nuances of "Gimmie Three Steps". Started playing bass with a local band not too long ago after not playing for about 4 years. So, knocking the rust off and just having fun learning songs.

    Good man I really need to print off some tabs or invest in a book and learn some grooves, hearing about you guys is helping!
    Good luck with the new band

    I've been working on YYZ(and generally getting my a$$ kicked by it:D) But persistence is key. The only way to get there is to keep going there.

    Also Ramble On and Under Pressure.

    I just finished my latest build - 5 string, 24 fret, bolt-on, Delano pickup, custom tuners, tobacco burst finish, full length flame fretboard inlay. Based loosely on the old Ampeg Devil basses.

    I've recently learned bass for Breathe. It's a great song, and pretty straightforward. Plus reading about it Waters said he pretty much winged it, so I don't feel compelled to replicate every nuance. Also:

    God what a great tune. I worked the rhythm guitar track out with a little help from Strat-Talkers and my teacher.

    I just got my bass amp back from my tech a couple weeks ago so I have been playing a lot more lately. No sound bites but this is my bass.
    It's a Made in the USA 1984 Jazz Bass with the of piece pickguard and a maple neck. I bought the Kahler at a local music store here in Shawnee KS and had it installed for $100.
    This was the bass that I learned on I high school and after I graduated it sat in
    A closet for two years while I convinced my old HS to sell it to me for $200 plus lessons for a semester to the kid that was struggling in jazz band at the time.

    Brought the Love Bass, aka Mr. Pink, upstairs to play a little the other day.
    This is the closest thing I have to a made from scratch instrument. IMG_3381.JPG IMG_3400.JPG

    Had to switch from guitar back to my original instrument of choice for the past few weeks at church. No one else can play it to my satisfaction. I'm leading so that means singing and playing bass at the same time. (Boy is that a brain scrambler) Currently rocking the trusty BB614 through a GK MB115. I prefer my old Hartke LH500 but I don't have that with me. (Back in the States)

    Wow. Surprised to see so many bass kats on here. I'm a bass player that just recently picked up guitar. I can't seem to pick my bass back up again and I have to learn new songs for a gig I have in 2 weeks! I'm really diggin the guitar at this moment. Just learned Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd on guitar...

    Worked on a tune that Boyo tracked drums for a couple of days ago. I did some scratch vocals instead of bassing. May just leave it until Boyo is back.

    I'm with you. I have been playing guitar seriously for about three years now. In that time I have barely looked at the bass. I even went through periods where I figured I would never touch it again. Out of necessity I have and I haven't lost the old chops. (that much anyway) I do love the bass and I think I will start dividing my time a little more equally between the two.

    I hate to say it, but I think I understand why guitarist sometimes snub the 4 stringer.

    yeah they snub it but most of em can't play it which is why I picked it up again. I was tired of the hatchet job. If I am going to play guitar and sing I need bass and drums locked in giving me something to stand on. If I am not getting it I will play bass until further notice. Now I am struggling with the new challenge of singing and playing bass at the same time. Whole different animal!
