  1. If you put both ends of the strap around the strap peg on the horn, the bass swings down and you can play it upright, like a DB. I don't know if you care but I just thought I'd tell you.

    I think I would only play a BG upright if:

    A.) my strap broke in the middle of a tune and I had to hold it up with my hands

    or

    B.) if I got a Dammann upright electric bass, they are cool
     
  4. I don't really know how fieldy plays, but I think Danmanns are cool too.

    See, the way I figure it, Fieldy has his bass so low that he must hold the head of his guitar near his head(the one on top of his neck that is attached to his shoulders) because he has short arms.

    Just look up KORN and you will see what I mean (KORN is a band, for those that are not into American music that much)
     
  6. oooh, PLEEEEZE post this on the DB board!


    hee hee hee... poor guy's gonna get fuqua'd up :D

    I think Ed's on vacation this week. Can I help?

    (ahem)

    FACEFOOD PLENTYMORE - KORN is a band, you say? Really? I thought they were a bunch of actors with musical instruments. Wow, learn something new everyday...

    And if yer tryin' to convince anyone that Fieldy plays that way because his arms are short, furgit it....everybody knows he plays that way because he just plain inhales large quantities of liquid beverage very quickly through an extremely large straw.

    (ahem...cough, cough...)



    How was that?
     
  8. NO! Don't move this to DB please I'm begging you! I take it back!

    Aw, c'mon....with Ed on vacation, how bad could it be?

    Then again, come to think of it, I don't think the dogs have been fed since Bassturbator/god was moderated out of existence....they had a couple of snacks on FielDy RuLeZ and PUKE 125NEWTHREADSABOUTMYSTUPIDWEBSITE, but now that you mention it, I have heard a strange growling sound down there recently....everyone's collective DB stomach, d'ya think?

    But I'm sure it's completely safe in castle DB. No, really....it's okay.....send us your poor, your huddled masses, your unwanted and unwashed Fieldy threads....nothing bad will happen....we'll be nice....no, really.....
