Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Our local primary school was in the news today - KK's team parked the van outside the school and apparently they were handing out how to vote cards to 10 year old kids. Sounds like these volunteer party members in Bennelong could use some help from ALP veterans like you, Russ, on how to better appl...

Re: Betsy, the Fried Egg Bass

My first bass was an Emperador precision copy but it had a mini-humbucker pick-up as far as I recall.

Re: Ipad controlled digital mixing desks

John, the drummer in my band, also does sound and he likes the Behringer, which he says is a rebranded Midas: good value for money. We used one on the weekend and it sounded good but there was a power spike that lost the settings, which annoyed the sound guy (to put it mildly). I, on the other hand,...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

This is interesting. NSW was the State with the lowest "Yes" vote. I would have expected that dubious honour to go to Qld. Just getting one back at those Southerners who delight in pointing out the appallingly high level of support Pauline gets in Qld. Actually the breakup in Qld is interesting fro...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

"don't want gay marriage business" But its not a case of that. It is a case of wanting to provide a service without violating their conscience. Hence to offer to provide the cake, but not that message. Then they can do without the business of those who find their position at odds to their conscienc...

I plug a sansamp (or other preamp) into the effects return of the amp if possible.

Sad to have missed it. I guess I'll have to wait another 12 months to catch up again. Looks like a great day.

Re: Anyone done any of the CPM Bass Guitar exams?

I think it depends what you want to get out of the course. The bass is a funny instrument in that it is simple to play but there is a whole world to explore to master it and it depends what you want to achieve in one or all of theory, technique, style and ensemble playing. That being said, I have no...

Thankfully it has a mighty fine house PA at the moment. So it's not a big deal with a markbass combo. ;)
