    Well, we agree about TB being above the line in most respects (see my previous post). I guess I'm just saying I can see where he is coming from.
  2. I was in one the other day. :spit: OTOH, welcome, new guy. :)
  3. You hardly have to be "obsessed with technicality" to dislike Fieldy.
  4. Welcome!

    Believe me, there is far more GREAT INFORMATION and WORTH WHILE DISCUSSION here then hate. You happen to have been looking in a zone where, unfortunately, the haters are a-plenty. When talking 'Fieldy' or 'Flea' you happen to run across a lotta bone-heads... Not too sure why, but you do. The ones who love 'em HATE the ones who don't - the ones who hate 'em love to stir the pot for the ones that do... Let's call it the Flea-Fieldy Effect or FFE for short...

    But believe me - TB is by far the be-all-end-all in everything bass - period. It is the best run, and most substantial information resource on the Internet - not just regarding bass, but regarding many things music, bass and even non-bass related.

    Don't let a few 'haters' color your opinion about TB. That would be a cryin' shame.

    And pay no attention to Guy N. Cognito... Nobody else does! :D

  10. MAZDA! MAZDA! what are you some kind of...... welcome to talkbass. this place is an addiction as you will soon find out. another welcome to the low end.
  11. At it's most fundamental level, music is about what sounds good, and what sounds bad, like - don't like. there are many variables of course, culture being one of them, and how a person hears and perceives sounds.

    for example, I might think the sound of a waterfall sounds beautiful, where-as someone else may not hear that beauty.

    Ha - ROFLMAO!!! :D :D :D

    I only just noticed this - a classic Spinal Tap moment!!

    Seriously - somebody should do this - like a mock instructional video discussing "the finer points of Fieldy's technique" ....:p

    I'm sure that would appeal to somebody like Jack Black !! ;)

    The DVD could have bonus features on Tatooing and how to get the right strap .....:eyebrow:

    That's what's really great about TB - so there is a cross-section of society - older people who actually have experience of playing music!! A reason to hang around here!!

    Whereas every other internet forum I have visited, is dominated by adolescent boys who have done nothing but sit in their bedroom, watch TV, play the latest video game and then told everybody how great they are and how FiElDy RuLez!! ;)

    I can't hang ariound anywhere else but TB, as I feel like I coming out in zits just reading the stuff!! ;)
  15. I was a moderator on another board some time ago, and it seems that TB is quite civil, espcially given the number of younger folks here. Not to generalize, but often youngin's are a bit more "careless" with their written speech.

    Think this place is pretty cool!

    I still dont know who this Feildy is. :rolleyes:

    Part of the reason is because they're both great brands, but happen to be mainstream. If I had the extra cash, I'd add an SVT-VR, an 810e, and a Fender P-bass to my collection (even though I don't need any of them!).

    And you know how we bassists are... dodging the mainstream as much as possible, from NOT playing guitar to buying a brand of bass 99% of the world has never seen or heard of :D
