Take it as a compliment; she was lost in the music!
Sorry, I don't even know what "Momo" is! Lol~
Yeah, each bass is just a standard J-bass (with Bartolini's) , and there's a bass selector switch between them. I originally built it as a short scale, (which I never fell in love with) and just recently made the two 34" scale necks - and WOW! It sounds amazing now.
OK I will finally weigh in on this "Ya'll" spelling controversy here. I was born and raised in South Carolina. We often pronounce 'you' as 'ya'. I. E. What's it to ya? Where ya going? Haven't heard from ya lately. We don't care how ya do things up north. So, when I contract "ya all" to "ya'll" I don't see what the problem is.
I think she was also lost in her several beers.
Just this weekend.
Walked into the club with my bass, an Anvil briefcase, and a speaker cab. Put it on the floor under a sign that said- Live Music Tonite!
Guy jumps off his barstool, approaches, and asks 'Are you playing here?'
I like when I hear this one while we are setting up.
Are you guys a D.J.?
No - I'm just putting my speaker cab here so you have somewhere to put your beer
Yeah, like a Rush lyric a christian could understand like " We can walk our road together, if our goals are all the same. We can run alone and free, if we pursue a different aim. Let the truth of Love be lighted, let the love of Truth shine clear. Sensibility, armed with sense and Liberty . With the Heart and Mind United in a single, Perfect Sphere!"
I remember seeing Rush in 1982 (Signals Tour) and a similar group was protesting and holding up signs that said Rush stands for "Rulers Under Satin's Hell" LOL!!! I'm a Christian but I don't believe any of that junk. Besides, Rush is far from devil music. Some people need to get a clue.
Some folks just seem to take the "Man & Star" logo a bit too seriously...
Not many of them are hanging out here, though.
^ that Rush logo made me Laugh. Which is truly a rare thing indeed.
Happy to be of service, thanks!
That was one of my better uses for the "straight outta somewhere" meme-maker (back when that site still worked).
I had a girl come up to me after a gig and say, so that is a big guitar...show me how to make a chord, I said, this is a bass we don't really play chords on them..just notes. What kind of notes she says...I'm like oh crap...here we go...she wraps her hand around the neck and starts strumming the strings and says is this a note..I said no..you have to go like this, I finger a B up on the E string..that is a B. She says well do I have to push down on that string like that..?...i said if you want a B yes...she says but I can't do that....now I'm annoyed..(which is why I don't teach)...I put the bass away and said music class is over..you should probably try guitar...
Arnold Zucker at the Victrola makes me laugh!
“Play Free Bird”
I used to know a guy who, when he would fart really loud, would say, "only an a$$hole would say something like that."
If I may say sir you missed an opportunity.
Finished a set a few month ago, last song was Cumberland Blues. This couple stops us as we walk away and says that was great, could we play some Dead next set? We said sure.
Back in college my band finished a raging set ending with Dirty Deeds and this cute girl comes up to me and said Pretty good but you should drop the AC D.C. I tried to explain that it was sort of an inside joke and we did not really do heavy rock but she stumbled off into the crowd. Caught up to her around campus and 38 years later she is still here.
While playing a NYE gig about 10 years ago a lady and her partner were dancing in front of my mic.... I just happened to glance at the lady who appeared to have a large chest area... the woman waved her finger at me as if to say "you shouldn't be looking at my boobs".... so I just smiled and kept on playing - then the lifted up her blouse and showed them to me! I was shocked
Singer said to me during the next break "did that woman show you her breasts"?
"Yep" I smiled
