    I am working on a project for school. It is kind of big, keep in mind, so I need a broad topic. Anyone think of any GEORGIA-RELATED bass or music things? It has to be related to Georgia, the state, not the country. I want to relate to the bass! HELP!:bassist: :eek:

    Some great rythmn and blues singers are from Georgia. I think one is Otis Redding. Anyway, so many have come form Georgia that Macon, GA has the Hall of Fame for R&B singers.

    James Brown is from Ga. What about Ray Charles? He wrote the achingly beautiful "Georgia on My Mind."

    There have been some other notable groups from GA. The B-52s. Also, don't forget that R.E.M., including their bassist, is from GA.

    Didn't Krunk develop in Atlanta?

    There are other notables, but I can't think of them all right now. Wish I could help you more.

    Collective Soul and the Allman Brothers Band, also. Might want to check out www.gamusichall.com for the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

    Is "Marching Through Georgia" still a taboo song in those parts?

    I tried google, FYI. I now officially hate google. It wanted to sell me a bass, a bass from georgia, but none the less it wanted to sell me something. WHY DOES GOOGLE TRY TO DO SUCH THINGS?

  11. OK - here's the plan - make a recording of all of the 52s songs played backward on your bass. That way, you'll reveal the satanic messages.

    I had a friend who did that with a whole mess of songs. Try playing the actual whole song, "Play that Funky Music White Boy" backwards. You better believe in Heaven And Hell.
