OK, wife out w/ the girls, 6-year old daughter in bed- TALKBASS!! Well, recently someone asked about something, & I offered an opinion. There were those who disagreed. That is perfectly OK- BUT: This opens up a can of worms- There are posts I read concerning musical styles, artists admired,gear used, and playing styles etc. Now, If I wanted to be a flamin' A, I could post stuff like: "Are you kidding? You think that guy can play-He ain't sh*** Or: "Those amps suck!" or "Those basses are for idiots" Hope you get the picture- But I try not to be a flamin' A, or a jazz snob, or a purist, or an equipment gearhead. This ain't Disneyland, I know...But I just thought I would post here (after looking at my little girls' sleeping face) and maybe at least suggest raising the bar here a little bit. I'd like to think that if nothing else, we all play the bass, in whatever way we choose, using whatever gear we want. So if you ain't got nuthin' nice to say read your message, check your head, then do what you gotta do..... Gotta go, I hear someone asking for "Daddy"
