    There are those who argue that the entire forum IS a DB Jazz forum. I never bought it, but there are those who argue that. I always thought a theory forum would be a good idea, but it never caught on either.

    If you get a chance, be a sport and fill in your profile. :cool:
  3. A jazz forum, by its very openness, would produce much heat and little light.

    probably for the same reason why there is not pUnK rUleZ[BG] forum.

    Actually I seem to remember that in previous versions of this board, that there was a Jazz forum on the DB side - I expect Paul can confirm.

    There was also a Pro forum - I asked the guy a few questions - which was run by a Pro who asked for questions on Jazz DB.
  7. Really no need to limit the forums, take me, I play HipHop on my DB with my gay bow, really no need to read about the jazz guys.

  8. You are one great instigator, gruff.
  9. I like to think of it more as a "the year 2001 in review" post.

    There isn't sufficient traffic on the DB side to justify another forum.

    Maybe if there was a separate Jazz forum, it would get more traffic! I know that there have been a lot of discussions which have involved Jazz on the BG side - about how to play it, Jazz chord/scale theory, how to construct walking lines, recordings etc.

    I often think it's strange, as the players mentioned in these discussions are invariably DBers. I think that people don't pose the questions over here as there is no obvious place to go and they see it's quiet, so feel intimidated. (I mean, some of the questions on the BG side are so "Stoopid" that nobody's going to feel intimidated about mentioning Jazz!) If there was a Jazz forum and a few debates/questions had already started, then I reckon this would be quite a popular area.

    A lot of the (more experienced?) BG players are Jazz fans and I'm sure like me, they would appreciate a place to share stories, questions, knowledge etc, with those on this side of a similar persuasion.

    I think it would be a cool idea. Although I kinda think of DB misc. as the jazz forum.

    Purchase a copy of Gary Peacock's Homespun video "The Acoustic Bass". Watch it eveyday. All your db jazz itches will be scratched.
