    I see THESE TERMS all the time here. What do they mean?

    The last two are easy and uncontroversial - the first one is much more subjective and means different things to different people - there is no one, agreed definition!

    Do a search on "Growl" and you will find many, whole threads arguing about what it actually is and most are unresolved! ;)

  4. They refer to bodily functions caused by too much exposure to mid frequencies and spalted tops. For example, a bass player experiencing these symptoms might say "I have so much GAS, and I've probably got more on the way by the sound of the GROWL in my MWAAAAH."

    A Jaco signature relic fretless would have growl and mwaah and might well give some people G.A.S.!! ;)

    I want you guys who use terms like these to please stop. They are meaningless and change depending on the person using them. And though people pretty much agree on what "mwah" means, it's such an irritating thing to say (and an even more irritating sound), so I suggest modifying US law to allow people to beat the crap out of anyone who uses "mwah."
     
  7. Mwah... Mwah... Mwah

    You know the tune. ;)

    I'm safe then - but it's all round Keith's house for a "rumble"!! ;)
