My newest toy!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have been thinking about it for a long time and finally bit the bullet and got a new toy. It's a Fender reissue 1951 Precision Bass. I also got a nice new amp to go with it. I am looking at bands considering getting back into playing on a part time basis. I am talking to a guy about auditioning for the position. It's a group of physicians in their early 30's that are doing 80's tunes. I played in Top 40 bands in the 80's but I can't decide if that's what I want to really play, but I like the idea of a group of Drs. One is a Plastic Surgeon so my wife likes that idea!
Ehh we'll see what happens. I'll post the results if anything pans out one day. It's just hard finding musicians my age that just want to play out occasionally (up here anyway!)

My latest musical venture!

My only contribution to this thread is mention that I live in (well, a few hundred yards north of) the hometown of Les Paul. :D

You'd better post a YouTube video of yourself playing this!

Nice dude! And just 'cause its a bass, one of my favorite jokes ever...


A scientific expedition disembarks from its plane at the final outpost of civilization in the deepest Amazon rain forest. They immediately notice the ceaseless thrumming of native drums. As they venture further into the bush, the drums never stop, day or night, for weeks. The lead scientist asks one of the natives about this, and the native's only reply is "Drums good. Drums never stop. Very BAD if drums stop." The drumming continues, night and day, until one night, six weeks into the trip, when the jungle is suddenly silent. Immediately the natives run screaming from their huts, covering their ears. The scientists grab one boy and demand "What is it? The drums have stopped!" The terror-stricken youth replies "Yes! Drums stop! VERY BAD!" The scientists ask "Why? Why? What will happen?" Wild-eyed, the boy responds, " . . . BASS SOLO!!!"

Leo Fender is from my hometown; there is some sort of museum. I also stumbled upon his grave marker during one of my cemetery strolls.

Chrose,
For those who might not understand your new toy, you might want to explain just how this slices the perfect cooked potato.:confused:

It's not for potatoes, but pasta. Instead of maccheroni alla chittara, it makes something more like fettucini alla bass.

I just got a bunch of Motown cds and am having a blast with them. James Jamerson who did most of the bass work for Motown (Jackson 5, 4 Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, etc) is "da bomb"!
I have a reply in for a guy who wants to play Jazz in the style of DiMeola, McLaughlin, Andy Summers, etc. so we'll see how that pans out. Ideally I would love to play in a soul band! But how likely is that around here?!?

Enjoy your new toy. I know nothing about guitars, bass or otherwise, except my dad used to play an acoustic and traded my trombone in years ago on a new one. lol
