A black bass guitar with blue knobs that go to 11 and a FCK AFD sticker.

So. The plan is for 5 of us to pile in a car tonight, and head over to Hรถchst for the Stormy Monday jam session.

Since it's a blues jam, I'm going to bring a "P" w/flats.

Since I'm churchmouse poor, it's not a Fender, it's an El Cheapo. Not even a Glarry, a Glarry CLONE!

๐Ÿคฃ No worries. It doesn't sound like a cheap piece of shit anymore.

Unreleased Van Halen Music to be Released in the Future, Says Former Bassist
We're gonna get a deep dive of unreleased Van Halen in the future. The post Unreleased Van Halen Music to be Released in the Future, Says Former Bassist appeared first on MetalSucks.

https://www.metalsucks.net/2023/04/28/unreleased-van-halen-music-to-be-released-in-the-future-says-former-bassist/

#VanHalen #UnreleasedMusic #FutureRelease #MusicNews #Bassist #MichaelAnthony

ChatGPT making things up about the article:
After over a decade of silence from the Van Halen camp, former bassist Michael Anthony has broken his silence. Anthony revealed to US radio station KSHE 95 that the band had some unreleased music in the works and that, at some point in the future, fans could hear it for themselves. Anthony went on to say "I hear rumors about it, and hopefully in the future, there might be something that people havenโ€™t heard before ... I guess itโ€™s just a matter of time." His statement follows months of speculation and fan anticipation for new music from the group. Despite confirmation of unreleased music, there is still no official release date announced. For long time Van Halen fans, there is finally hope of new material--now all that's left to do is wait and (im)patiently.

Woo hoo! Finally heard about the field trip to Hรถchst for the Stormy Monday jam session...

It would appear 3 of us are going in a no-smoking vehicle. Plenty of room for me and my bass. Since it's only a half hour trip by car, I'm sure I can hold out that long.

Now it's a question of which bass to bring: Long scale? Shorty? Rounds? Flats? ๐Ÿ˜œ BEAD?

It's blues, so I'm leaning towards flats on a P.

#Bass #Basstodon #Bassist #BassistenGegenRassisten #BassistsAgainstRacists

Bass guitars lined up on the couch. L-R: Stingkitty, Spellcaster, Sparkles, Twiggy, Badtz, Jenny, Princess Luna (sold), and Li'l Red. One can tell I have a thing for block inlays.
Not shown: Katherine, (sunburst 51 P clone), Svetlana (red Soviet reverse headstock SS P), and Froggy (green no-name generic 80s hair band bass).

Nothing further about the field trip to Hรถchst for the Stormy Monday jam session next week. Just me jumping up and down saying I'll help with gas.

Train is not an option.

The Wiesbaden thing is this Thursday. I'm gonna bring a bass, just in case. I'm going to check out the scene, not to play. It's being advertised as an open stage. Open Stages are not welcoming for a lone wolf bassist.

Anyway, I do believe I'm gonna go finger someone's bottom, and make 'em moan.

#Basstodon #Bass #Bassist

Yours truly fingering Stingkitty to make her moan.

@mewbassprr
Open jam sessions.

Bassists are always in demand, almost revered; you WILL get stage time. Regardless of your skill/experience.

No one is expecting you to be Jaco, or know every song they throw at you, or sight read. (MAYBE basic charts)

As a bassist, even boners usually sound OK in the mix. Root thumping is OK.

If you're far from the city, playing along with radio stations you don't normally listen to.

There's no such thing as too much theory.

Heh. The local open stage crew is organizing a field trip to the Stormy Monday blues jam in Hรถchst.

I've played there a few times when I still lived in Frankfurt.

If it's a caravan of cars, I'm in.

If they decide train, I'm out. For the exact same reasons I don't go to *ANY* of the jam sessions in Frankfurt: it's a minimum 3 hour round trip, more likely 6.

Plus the mobility issues.

Also, the jam sessions tend to end late. Trains are sporadic in the wee hours.

Attention Basstodon: I have opinions about the Fender Gold foil Jazz bass

It isn't a jazz bass.

The most iconic part of the J-bass tone, at least to me, is the warm, tight, slightly nasal, burbling bridge pup (e.g. in Jaco Pastorious's stuff).

This bass dispenses with a bridge pup. Sure, it's very pretty. But the tone is not going to be classic J-bass tone. Imo.

The last time I've worked from an external studio. In this case it was the SAE in London.

February 2017, recording fretless bass for Callum Gardner's debut single "Commit to the List".

Ended up re-recording the part in my studio because before the official release I've worked out a slightly more elaborate line.

I have changed my mind about this Old Spice ad:

1) Meโ€™Shell Ndegeocello plays bass solos.

2) I donโ€™t know if I want to smell like Meโ€™Shell Ndegeocello, but I absolutely would like to smell her.

#OldSpice #BassGuitar #Bassist #MeshellNdegeocello

A bottle of Old Spice โ€œGuitar Soloโ€ body wash, which is a metallic red plastic with a white graphic of a rock band with a bass guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and drummer. The text reads: Dear Old Spice, there are a few issues here worth mentioning about your new 'Guitar Solo' body wash. 1. That's a bass, not a guitar. Big difference. 2. Rarely, if ever, does a bassist ever play a solo, unless his dad owns the P.A. and van and he has a pushy showbiz mum. 3. Not once in recorded history has anyone ever uttered the phrase: "Gosh, I'd really like to smell more like a bass player. "

I'm gathering I'm supposed to do an #introduction from other posts. I'm Ellie (she/her), an #ElderMillennial living in #Nasvhille but originally from #Chicago.

Work: I'm a #musician โ€” #bassist, #songwriter, mediocre #guitarist, amateur #producer. I'm a #writer currently floundering at the ~5k word mark in #NaNoWriMo. I'm a #chef specializing in #vegan food.

Other things: I love #dogs and post too many pictures of mine. #Cows are my favorite animal. I love #scifi especially #Farscape and #StarTrek. #Halloween is the only holiday that matters. Firmly #antitheist, definitely #Satanist, but occasionally find myself talking to nature or playing with runes. So far #leftist I'm amazed I can even use my right hand anymore.

I have edited this post 413 times.

I'll pretty much follow anyone back who isn't a bigot, so say hi. :)

#introductions... I'm a #bassist of over 30 years playing, love #funk #music and anything with great #bassguitar in it. Currently studying with #scottsbasslessons to try to fill the gaps in my knowledge, which is really helping.

Came over here to find out how good the platform is, pleasantly impressed with what I find. Hoping the right wing nut jobs and conspiracy theorists tire of screaming at each other and finally find some peace, but I doubt it.

Hello, Fediverse. I'm an electrical engineer (for work and pleasure), a #bassist, a #linux and #bsd user, and a cat lover. I've got a list of projects including things related to renewable energy and home networking, which I make varying degrees of progress on. Expect posts relating to these now and then, along with animal pictures, music, and other things.

I sometimes post sporadically, but I usually keep an eye on my timeline. Feel free to poke me now and then.

For pronouns, he/him/they/them are good.
