Show Us Your Basses

Get one! It matches your bass (and avatar :slight_smile:)

The R6 is a good choice if you don’t want a litre-bike.

The best I has before going Harley was a Suzuki 1100 EFE again stripped out with a 1250 engine upgrade, flat slide race carbs and a 4 into one exhaust. Just crazy :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Awesome.

You’re not wrong about the R1 though. Tops out at 97mph - in first gear. Out of six. :fire: :japanese_ogre: :fire:

The way I used to put it was “One way or another, the R1 will be the last motorcycle I buy.”

In the end - probably best I never pulled that trigger :slight_smile:

To give you an idea of where my bass playing’s at, here’s some videos of me playing Another One Bites The Dust and Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Not so bad for just starting out! Keep at it.

Love Will Tear Us Apart is not easy, chords like that might be a bit of a big bite to take this early :slight_smile:

For me, AOBTD is harder because the rhythm is weird for beginners, as Josh pointed out in one of his videos. LWTUA is relatively easy but switching between chords is hard. Thanks for the advice :smile:

Another thing you can do with Love Will Tear Us Apart is just play the melody without the chording to start, then add the chording later. So basically the notes on the G string (and two on the D string at the end).

Ah, I never thought of that. Thanks for the tip :grinning:

Hey. So I’m having this problem with my pickup and I don’t know what’s causing it or if I should worry about it :confused:

Does it pop back to full height after pushing on it?

Pickups are often adjustable - you can screw them down or up to adjust their height. Some of them are backed by springs or foam. While none of my basses have been springloaded exactly like that, I can picture that being normal on some basses.

Hopefully others can comment if they have pups like that.

Thanks. It does pop back to full height.
