I like you too dave. nice to see you in cyberspace…..
Very cool video. Some years back i got to see Mark O’ Connor’s Hot Swing Trio live with John Burr on bass. truly phenomenal. this is the only video I could find of them though 🙁
So far Delta and SAS have been my two worst experiences flying basses. I booked flights on Northwest.com to Ireland, and the flights were with delta. Northwest is Easy. 150 bucks each way to europe. we show up to the Delta desk. First the attendant said I couldn’t fly the bass, I’d have to send it as cargo. after about 45 minutes of arguing and appealing to supervisor, after supervisor, I finally got it checked. For 325 fucking dollars. interestingly enough the return flight was only 100 euros.
It seems like alot of airline counter clerks will just charge you an arbitrary amount for your instrument. Whenever I fly I always research the airlines oversized policy, print it out and bring it with me so there is no argument.
when flying in the US I always use southwest. 50 bucks each way, no problem.
Hey shawn! how’s things? haven’t seen you out lately. of course we’re not home too much lately either. Hope all’s well!
+1 For Wally, Fantomas, Kevin Smith, etc.
Playing fast is fun and all, but that’s just athletics. I’ve seen kids can play ridiculously fast “e-g-e-g-e-g-e-g-e-g-e-g-e-g-e-g-a-c-a-c-a-c-a-c-e-g-e-g-e-g” ad nauseum “dude it’s so psycho!”
learn to play well, then playing fast is much more impressive!

Great perspective and very clear explanation.

[quote]I’ve been playing to early Metallica and Iron Maiden lately. Lots of fun! Rockabilly is way too easy. Been doing alot of muted notes too. I did them on that last vid I uploaded on youtube.[/quote]
+1 Work out the intro to ‘puppets’. it’s a slaptastic motherfucker to play in time.
Hey Kent! how’ve you been? Don’t you have Joe’s bass? you should post some pics of that. We always need more bass porn.
Don’t forget your stint in the Blue Moon Boys Simon!
