  1. I'd like to set up a Michigan GTG on the west side of the state. The only problem is that there are no all bass stores, or regular music stores around here that have squat above combo amps. So for a store to lend a spot is not going to happen.

    Any ideas? Rent a place for the afternoon? (my house is too small for a GTG)
     
  2. i would definately love to attend... but no ideas on where to have it... i do manage a music store, but our "cool bass gear" is a little lacking... and size wise it's pretty small (for a get together anyway) maybe a vfw of something like that would work?
     

  3. Hey there! I bought a VL210 off you quite a while ago.(don't know if you remember)
     
  4. lol... cool how's it been treating ya? :D

    small world eh?

    I'm in G.R. Sounds like it might be fun, but I don't know of anyplace suitable either. If you get it figured out, let me know.
     
  6. Would anyone be interested if they had to pitch in like $5-$10 for a space to rent?
     
  7. that's cool with me... it'd just fun to hang with other "bass geeks" :p
     
  8. Anyone else?
     
  9. I'd consider making the drive from Detroit and meeting you guys if the timing worked out.

    i'm from GR, but i live in royal oak now. i'd drive out to a get together. RIT isn't any good any more, or is it just too small? whatever, if the timing works, i'm in.

  11. RIT grand rapids is fair, but still only stuff like fender/ampeg/ibanez. RIT Holland is sub-par to say the least.

  14. No clue. I was making this post to see if there would be enough people to have a GTG in the area.

    I'm in Jackson with little funds and time but I would really consider it. I'm subscribing to the post to keep an eye on it.

    Hi guys I thought I'd put this here. I'm looking for a teacher in the NW Grand Rapids area. I have one already but he's not wililng to do every other week which is what I want. My influences are about 50% metal 50% hard rock. I want to know theory and we are studying modes right now. I"m primarily a finger player but want to play with a pick too. If anyone is interested please PM me. Thanks. Mike

    i'm in westland... my cardboard box bass is now being sold in Elderly Music (lansing MI).. i wanna set up at a show, but dammit there's nothing in Michigan! Ohio has them, Indiana too. I'm looking into hosting one myself, but i have no idea what the hell i'm doing.
