    There was a 'contest' (just for fun) on another forum, where a guy thought of a theme or something...which was:

    'Imagine... the band is already two hours' late, you know they are coming within a few minutes, but you HAVE to play something as the bassplayer of the band, because otherwise the audience is definitely leaving!'

    Have fun while listening...!!!

    Chain: Skyline 55.02 > EBS Unichorus > Akai Headrush > Soundcard. Added a little compression and reverb with Cubase.

    Cheers... from Holland... (No...not cheese... cheers! :smug: )

    Keeping the Audience

    Excuses for the noise and stuff on the mp3, it's from the soundcard, which is next to the networkcard which is wireless. It gives a bit noise, but don't bother about it.
  2. Nice playing and great tone. Just watch out for the buzzing, fret noises. Concentrate on playing as cleanly as possible.

    But I shouldn't be saying that, because that's one of my problems, too. :)
  3. I enjoyed that. Were you playing with the coil split on the bridge humbucker on the 55-02?

    Geoffkhan, you're right. I was improvising while I wrote the theme.. then just took the plunge with the recording button. :smug:

    I played it with the single coil mode... pretty good tone as I listen it back. A pity of the noise, but it's not a major problem... won't be selling this one.

    Thanks anyway for your comments. :hyper:

    (I'm glad I took the step of going to bass instead of my guitar... which I sold... but bought a nice bass for it. :smug: )

    That was sweet...enjoyed it.
  6. A buddy of mine and I are sitting here listening to this. We're both huge Jaco admirers, I play bass he plays guitar. And I can't say enough about how great this is. Good job man.
