  1. Hi everyone. I'm Geoff and am new to Talkbass. I found the URL on a "Got Bass" t-shirt that some guy had on at the local music store (Long & McQuade in Surrey) las Sunday. I am posting in the hopes tthat someone here might be able to help identify this bassist. I am guessing that he is a member. He is in his 40's and had a moustache and beard. He had some mean chops and my guess is that he's probably a jazz bassist. He was testing out some amps and was ripping it up with some really cool fusion-like grooves. I had hoped to talk to him when he was done, but my wife had to leave and pulled me away before I could talk to him. I phoned the store the next day but the guy that was working day Sunday was off. Help! I'd like to find out who this is and ask if he gives lessons. Anyone?

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    TY.

    Geoff
     
  2. Sorry. I guess I should have mentioned that I am in Vancouver.

    Well I never, the T-Shirts actually have a practical application (other than hiding your bloated midriffs ;))... Hope you find him, if he's got the T-Shirt he's probably a pretty dedicated TBer so if you're lucky he'll see this thread.

    Oh, and welcome to talkbass :)

    :(

    We were on this great new diet as well, "The Butter Zone". All you need is 2 pounds of butter, a bunsen burner and a straw!

    If you all live past a month post a before and after pic for science. I bet if you combine "the butter zone" with "Turpentine, drink of the Gods" you'll make it three weeks.

    Where'd you lift that one from?
     
  16. Like the underside of the arm, the droopy bit under buttery people's arms as they hold their arms out perpendicular to their buttery bodies?
     
  17. I did go on a "All Beer No Food" diet and went from 153 to 126 in around 2 weeks.

    vanbass-
    this is your welcoming committee... enjoy and welcome.
     
  19. Wow! I'm blown away... I mean, what are the chances?
    Geoff, if it was Saturday, that was probably me. I wasn't there on Sunday. Were you with 2 kids and a woman?

    Yeah, I think I remember you... you were checking out some basses right outside the amp room... yes? Anyhow, feel free to email me - just click on my email link above.


    (Later edited) Ummm... I guess there is no email link above. Try grosson@shaw.ca
