  1. Is it just me or has the neeps gazette totally failed to review the gig? Pretty poor given they sponsor the arena and did manage to review the show from the night before - Britains Got Talent - which was a sell out 4,000!! How many at Neil Young does anyone know - reckon theor was more than that somehow?

    First Ever Gig?

    UFO Capitol Theatre Aberdeen in 1979 I think - six of us dodged of school for a couple of days and came down from Wick - stage was stormed at the end and my mate managed to get on and avoid the bouncers who gave up trying to throw people off and let them get on with it - great night.
  3. I'm thinking of getting an acoustic bass to jam acoustically with some mates at home. First up will this work? A couple of acoustic guitars and an acoustic bass and maybe someone tapping away on a bongo/tambourine/box in a living room with neighbours through the wall? (Also got loads of kids between us so not really looking to do a church hall on a freezing winters night as gigging is not on the horizon meantime!) Secondly I don't play bass but used to be able to strum a G, C & D on a guitar so am willing to put in the time needed to get there but any advice on particular bass to go for? So far I reckon it needs to have frets and be with the longer neck and probably have capability of plugging in if needed but beyond that....? Big name like Ibanez or lesser known brand? Any second hand stuff going locally or should I stick with interweb? Finally is there anyone giving bass lessons locally that would manage acoustic? Also best book/tutorials to go for? Cheers Corky
  4. Which is the better buy for a beginner on drums - Roland TD-3KW-V or Traps E400 DM5 with Alesis DM5 Module? Have discounted Yamaha DTxplorer unless anyone can advise otherwise. Acoustic kit totally out of the question so has to be electronic. All thoughts, comments etc gratefully read but not necessarilly acted apon. Corky
