    anyone else get their October issue yet ??
    very cool of them to include a cd of various bassists ...
    also good advertising for D'addario strings .
    { glad they didn't glue it in the magazine , like the Ampeg pullout }

    thanks to Bill Leigh and Bass Player Magazine for this groovy extra ... :cool:

    Got my issue in the mail this morning. No CD. I'm not going to lose sleep over it though. I don't think I have room in my house for another CD!!

    Are you pulling our collective leg? Did you buy yours in the store or do you have a subscription?

    I got the CD, and it's pretty good. Lots of great stuff from a variety of people. That's weird that a lot of people didn't get it... anyone know of a reason that only select people would receive the gift?

  16. No CD for me either. This is the second time I've gotten screwed this year. I didn't get a CD when I saw Prince in concert either!!

    It could be that it was provided by an advertiser and they only provided so many to be placed randomly. Yeah, this is making sense a bit more...I just checked D'addario's website and every single artist that David listed as being on the CD is listed on the website as a "D'addario performing artist". So they probably bought ad-space to put the CD in but only in a select number of magazines because it would probably bankrupt them to put it in every magazine. Sucks that so many weren't "the one."
