    Great song, great band. Love how you tamed the tempo after the bridge. Great bass work!

  2. Thanks, that was always my favorite in that band. I just followed the drummer, the singer, Charlie Dougherty, was a good songwriter, there's several more of his on that CD that I managed to transfer to my computer. We almost got back together a couple of years ago but everyone is scattered all over the place, Charlie is in Tennessee and his wife wouldn't let him do it.

  4. He was a great drummer, his son is well known now, Josh Dion, 'Paris Monster' check him out on youtube. Not really my kind of music but he play keyboards, sings and drums at the same time with a bass player..

    Sorry, that was the take I did for my wife. She said I was too loud on the first one :rolleyes:.
     

  10. Two rules to live by for bass players:


    1. Bass is NEVER too loud


    2. If someone tells you you are too loud, see rule #1. :laugh:

    I am the deaf one in this marriage! Headphones are difficult because I can't use them with hearing aids. Without hearing aids, I have yet to find headphones that will handle my required volume. I can "tap into" my hearing aids but the drivers can't handle the bass's direct frequencies so, here I am playing thru a pair of monitors (about 12" in front of me). I walk a fine line between turning up the volume and getting "busted" ;).

    PS. 32 years for us and my lack of hearing could be a contributing factor :laugh::bassist:.

  16. Bass doesn't bother mine, I can turn it up pretty much as loud as I want. I play in a room that is on the opposite side of the apartment though which is pretty long and these places are all cement out here so sound doesn't travel like it does in a wooden structure.

    There's something wrong with Talkbass as I have never played in a Dead Tribute band.

    Try these, they can go louder than I can stand and have a bass boost button, with bluetooth.

    Thanks for that. I know I am not the only one, but have a preference to hear and feel bass through speakers. My hearing aids allow for that but using head or earphones, on their own, isolates me from the outside world. May not make sense to some but those who have to wear hearing aids, and have adapted to them, would probably feel the same way.

    If not, then they are just as crazy as I am :).

    I always play through speakers, I use the headphones for the computer unless I'm playing to youtube or something like that then I used both the computer speakers and my amp's speakers.

    Yup, Talkbass is having another problem today.
