Hey guys, I just wanna share my happiness to all of you! My band have participated the Yamaha Asian Beat Band Competition this year, and finally we have won the Champion and I have won the best bass player award as well. (it is really means something to me). We will then represent my home country Hong Kong to join the Grand Final in Jarkata, Indonesia at 26 Feb with other 6 Asian countires and region. John Myung, the bass player from Dream Theater is one of the jugde at grand final. It is really wonderful that one of your bass hero is watching you band playing and judge you. I really hope I can get the best bass player award from his hands. If you guys would like to know more about the events. please check out this link. http://asianbeat.yamaha.co.jp/index.html For those who feel interest in our band performance at the competition. Please check this video out! http://www.tomleemusic.com/SpecialPage/event/ev140/final/en/review.html I use my own US Curbow Int'l Exotic Petite 6 string bass and the SWR SM-400 + Goliath III + Triad which provided by the organiser that night, but my bass sounds crappy in the video. The mixing can't bring out the bass as well....Sigh....... By the way, I have to use Yamaha bass during the grand final due to the restriction, I have requested a Yamaha TRB-JP1 6 string bass from my local organiser, Tom Lee Music, it is the good bass anyway and I think my playing won't affect too much by the bass. Thanks god.
