@suntripper: Yea, he gets pretty close. No idea about the cymbals.
@supernaut: I might have gotten my hands on the wrong Ricks then.
Had a Thunderbird myself years ago. My first bass. Never knew back then, but what a terrible fit for me and my tiny fingers that bass was. Neck like a tree trunk, with a dive of course. Huge chunky body. I stick to short scales these days.
Would love to try those Stavem basses. A least one of them is a medium scale if I remember correctly, so probably easier to handle. And those bisonics are amazing sounding pickups.
Surprising to see covers! Some of those guys are nailing it too. Lakland guy wailing those chords on Starmelt/Lovelight (fingerstyle even!) and Neverland guy is spot on. Cool.
This guy does a good rundown of how to get there (with modelling though): How I get my Chris Squire bass sound
Indeed he proudly proclaimed to be the 'inventor' of the thumb-mute with a hard attack.
Add in a proper dual amp setup with overdrive, chorus and tremolo on the treble channel into a guitar amp, and you get fairly close really.
Have experimented with a non-dual amp setup using different signal splitters to separate into two channels. It gets messy, costly, requires a euro pallet sized pedalboard and several kilometers of patch cable.
No, that was a jazz bass. Should bring that avatar back, feels naked without it.
Tried a couple of ricks through the years and could never get used to the neck to be honest. Unfortunately, because they sound great
Ah yes. True that, about Squire. The rick-o-sound was double jacks of course. My bad.
Now that is a bold statement about venues in Oslo, billybob!
Missing from setlist: Bartok of the Universe. Was played early, song 2/3 or so.
Very pleased to see more Blitz tickets for sale.
Will be going monday and friday. Had I not been a relatively new father it would have been monday -through- friday. Awesome choice of venue considering their early history. I think it must be close to two years now since I saw our boys. Definitely looking forward to this.
Also those of you who did not â€˜getâ€™ the Dead (yet): No worries, this just means you have alot to look forward to.
Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
You can see the page, but not load the comments.
Rather non typical crowd for a Motorpsycho gig at MÃ¥nelandingen there. Coupled with the NRK production it feels like an episode of Allsang pÃ¥ Grensen from a parallel universe.
Any chance of a screengrab for those of us not on social media?
Droney. Sounds different from KoO. More HBM vibes.
Is that a tele Snah is playing?
Have to admit, I love seeing a negative review once in a while.
Not because I agree with the reviewer (I haven't even heard the record yet), but it seems no matter what the band releases, the reviewers are falling over themselves praising them.
Breath of fresh air I guess.
More frustratingly, I received a notification in my Posten (norwegian mail) app monday 15.03 that a package from Rune Grammofon is on the way. Standard procedure when prepaying for shipping before the package is handed to Posten.
So now I have this phantom package in my app. Strangely, frantically refreshing the app does nothing to bring the package home sooner.
It's just an itch beneath the skin..
