    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Sadly, my favorite bass mag, the UK Bass Guitar Magazine will no longer be distributed to stores in Canada and the US. They've offered a subscription rate to match the newstand price, which is fine and I don't fault them for making a business decision, but if you like paying for the (expensive) mag on an issue-by-issue basis, you're out of luck.

    Again, i don;t fault them - it's just one of those unfortunate things. I have enjoyed every issue since their inception and Adrian Ashton was always responsive via e-mail. Great articles, the best published lessons around (IMHO) and just great reading in general. Sure, maybe they aren't as "polished" as BP, but I found their articles to be timely, interesting and informative. They did one of the best Jaco spreads I've seen in a mag.
