when i play fretless i try to play like bill wyman.
I don't understand how all other instruments get taught with serious discipline but with guitar and electric bass it seems acceptable to compromise the quality of education and allow some people who clearly know nothing to charge money for lessons when they have no real background or knowledge of the deeper fundamentals of music in general. Maybe it's the shorter heritage of the instruments or just that they're easier to get away with being a hack on in today's music scene.
Bill plays fretless? Wow, I thought the out of tune bass on "start me up" was because because he took Jeff's advice and stopped using a tuner
General consensus is that Wyman was the first to pull the frets from a bass in 1961 or so.
Haha, my above post wasn't serious but I must admit that I never knew about that bit of bass history.
The first *known* player at least, some guys on here claim to have done it earlier.
Excuse me. The bass player is always perfectly in tune.
It's the rest of the band that is always uniformly out of tune.
(So it is said, let it be written)
FWIW, I thought I read somewhere it wasn't even Bill on that track.
If it was Keith or Woody, it might actually be the bass.
that's the wisest thing i've read all day.....watering everything down everything to a disney level does not
foster adult discourse...imho
I agree. I do like to see people treat each other with a bit o' respect, though.
The problem with this line of action is at least twofold. First, he won't be ignored because he has a habit of lobbing little grenades at those who've had run-ins with him before. He was warned on *several* occasions to stop this (as were those who lobbed them back - at least one of whom got the idea). Secondly, others will see his posting style and think it's ok to post in the same manner. This is why the rules are applied to everyone, despite those who will say otherwise.
Also, the course of this discussion has now run counter to the rules, since it's now a big questioning of moderator actions. Rather than clean up all the posts that do that, I'm just going to close this thread.
