    Yesterday I was walking into my friends house. And his older brother was standing around outside doin random things.. putting stuff away etc. Well when he saw me was like.. "DUDE RAVAGE NEEDED A BASSPLAYER LIKE YOU!!" And then a whole bunch of lines just like it. It was really unexpected and it really made my day... Considering I just shelled out a ton of money to fix my car.. (didn't even fix it) :scowl:

    Post comments you have recieved as well.

    Shut up you idiot or I'll gut you like a pig!


    :p ;)


    This isn't a big deal, but it made me feel pretty good. I've been playing EB for about 10 years now, but just recently picked up an URB and a couple weeks ago I had my second gig with it. Being so new on it, I'm still very paranoid about my intonation on the thing. Anyway, I had a guy come up to me and say "It was really refreshing to see an upright in a band setting like this. It sounded great and your intonation was dead on." Turns out he's a cellist in the local Symphony.

    We all get the "Great set, man!" or "You're bass is really cool looking!" or "That one part of that one song that you can really hear the bass kicks ass!", but to actually get some amount of affirmation from someone who obviously knows what they're talking about means a lot.
