  1. Dale is about 26, and is finishing a Ph.D. in musicology at UTK. He uses the keyboard to play tympani parts on a couple of songs. It's entertaining to see him playing a beat in a song with his right hand and two feet, and playing the tympani part with his left hand at the same time.

    Most of the drummers I've worked with are in their 20's. I know what you mean. We have a hard time finding drummers that will play for more than a couple of productions, or that will commit to working 2 or 3 weekends at the rate the theatres pay.

    Post edited above. Jolt can’t do the earlier time slot due to the drummers schedule, so we are playing from 6 - 9:30.

  4. I'm playing a unique handbells service at Bearden UMC in Knoxville on Wednesday night. A good friend of mine got me in on this. Details here if anyone is interested.

    I will be playing the Wordplayers' production of Jane Eyre at the Bijou Theatre in July. Details forthcoming.

    What's everyone up to this summer?

    Thank you Jeff!!! I appreciate so much the encouragement I have gotten from you and some other of my bass brethren on here. I love playing bass and will never stop. It's been such a huge part of my life since high school, and just can't give it up. I hope to keep all my basses I have now and maybe have a really great rig soon, even if it's just to play at home or bring to a GTG we have sometime. Maybe buy some recording gear to mess around at home... Who knows but like I said thanks to all you guys for everything.

    For anyone interested, I still have an SX short scale bass, some bass cabs, a Fender guitar rig, and other gear I have for sale. Some stuff I would practically give away if someone is interested.

    I will PM you about it.
     
  18. I have an SX SS j-bass, the one with the Barts, and they are very nice for how cheap they are. If one doesn't have to play 30" scale for physical reasons, they are fun to play for players who normally play 34-35", which I do. I bought mine to see how an SS plays, with a mind toward buying parts from Warmoth to build one, but decided just to keep the SX instead.
