  1. I have a couple different takes on it. Read all of it, trust me.



    1. Make playing bass easy, get the action as low as possible to fret board and play light on the strings. You will be able to play much faster if you play relaxed. It is a good habit to learn.


    2. Don't have your bass hung too low if you are trying to play difficult parts keep it at comfortable height. If not, make sure its lower than your knees.:)


    3. Practice picking with both your pointer and middle finger, some people just use one. That's a bad habit.


    4. Don't put your thumb over the top of the fret board, place your hand on the neck as if you were playing a classical guitar. You thumb and your middle finger should line up.


    5. Some songs are simple, some songs are busy for the bass.

    -Play for what the song calls for

    *If its a blues, be busy on the neck. If its a punk song, keep the bottom end thumpin'

    -Less is more

    *Don't play advanced parts all the time, find places in a song to add a cool run. You will find it sounds and sticks out better.


    6. You and the drummer should be best friends. Get to know your drummer, to try "read" him. Learn his fills and anticipate his fills. Were ever the drums go in a song, you should too.


    7. Keep and opened mind to bass players. Slap, Fusion, Jazz, Rock, Prog., ect. Learn it all.



    Do these things and you will go far.

  2. How do I connect three amps so they can use them all at once? I have a Boss Tuner Pedal, which I use to plug in two amps at once. I wonder if there is a pedal or special cable that would be able to plug in all three.



    Here is what I'm talking about.




    Guitar > ??? > Three Bass amps.


    How do I connect all three?

  3. I would Recommend either a Ibanez SDGR (Sound Gear)

    Slimmest neck I have seen on a lower end Bass, Tone is excellent, and most that I have played at Guitar Center come set-up right out of the factory.




    I wouldn't get a Fender or Squire, they require a bit of work to get the action perfect and The pick-ups are weaker.








    For the Price I would go with a Ibanez.

  4. Q: How do you confuse a French Soldier?

    A: Give him a rifle and ask him to shoot it.



    Q: What's the motto of the US Marine Corps?

    A: Semper Fi (Always Faithful)

    Q: What's the motto of the French Army?

    A: Stop, drop, and run!



    Q. Why don't Master Card and Visa work well in France? A. They do not know how to say "CHARGE!"



    Q: What Does "Maginot Line" mean in French?

    A: "Speed bump ahead"



    Q: Why did the Post Office have to recall its series of stamps depicting famous Frenchmen?

    A: People were confused about which side to spit on.



    Why don't the French really want the US to attack Iraq? Don't want their record for surrender broken.



    Q: Why does every army (except the U.S., England and Israel) have to have a French flag?

    A: In case they want to surrender!



    Q: What's the difference between a Frenchman and a catfish?

    A: One is an ugly, scum sucking bottom-feeder and the other is a fish.



    The French have only one actual fighting war hero, Joan of Arc, and they turned her over to the enemy!

  5. You can't handle the Truth! (A Few Good Men)






    Get off my Plane! (Air Force One)







    Come with me if you want to live (Terminator 2)







    Did that stop the Americans when the Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor? (Animal House)

  6. Spy Hard.


    **** Steele-I'm going in there.


    Veronique Ukrinski-**** this is crazy.


    **** Steele-Crazy? Some people think walking down the street muttering to yourself is crazy, No I tell you what crazy is.


    Crazy is walking down the street with half a cantaloupe on your head, muttering "I'm a hamster, I'm a hamster.

    I'm not sure what makes kids make this kind of music, whether they are trying to fit on, let out there repressed emotions, or picking off were KISS left off.


    But Emo...






    My Grandfather went through two five major Wars, several Gas crisis, A Great Depression. and not once did he feel any emotions and he played amazing Spanish guitar.


    Not drop tuned stuff, do you think kids are starting to lose backbone?
