    After watching bass day 98 with Vic, and the atreyu video for Lip Gloss & black, I have the urge to start flippin' my bass! Does anyone have a technique other than the hit the headstock and send it over your shoulder? Any pics of you flipping your bass? Don't be shy...

    Practice on a cheap bass. Don't use a heavily padded(like leathery) strap, wear a bike shirt(or nylon), don't try without lock straps
     
  3. Yeah, like a local band here who were playing a fairly major gig in London. Laaaaaaaaunch went the guitar...

    Comically, in the same gig as the launch the guitar incident, he knocked his water over into his amp head and blew it up, and also he didn't loop the lead through his strap and it got pulled out.

    Frequently.

    C'est la vie...
