"@Diglydog:  No the neck isn't reinforced, but it is substantial (it's an upright from an old art school easel). A good thing about the Thomastik strings is that they are low tension, due to the nylon core. Cheers"

To get the best from this video, please play it through at least half-decent speakers, otherwise much the bass sound will be lost. Bass guitar: scale length ...

cheers Mark, very encouraging. Sometimes I find these pieces that I recorded previously and just forgot about them. This was done in October. There's one or two other possibles then I'm going to work up some more ideas on same theme.

Cheers Mark, it was really just an exercise for sussing it all out. Kept it short for ease, didn't want to be too ambitious. I know what you mean though, it could go a lot further.

You are welcome, Mark. It may be a while before I finish mine. A minor set back with the fingerboard slipping and sliding after I applied the glue, and of course, it dried a little over. So, I had to do some sanding to correct that problem. I told my husband, it doesn't seem like I will ever finish it. He said, anything worth while takes time. Keep building and playing and having fun.

Nice CBGs.

Hi Mark, and thanks for the offer of a lift. Hyde is only about twelve miles away from me, or less, so that wouldn't be too difficult. Unfortunately, now that I know the price of tickets, I don't think that I will be able to afford to go and I certainly wouldn;t be able to do an overnight stop - which had been my original intention untill I joined th swelling ranks of the unemployed earlier this year. It seems like I;ll just have to be with you all 'in spirit'. :-(
