Hey JR, don't mean to hi-jack but I didn't want to post a new thread for this. However, I thought you might get a kick outa this piece of Garage Band Nostalgic from the late 50's early 60's. This is a 10"x14" poster that most bands had printed up and then place in various locations in the area to draw a crowd for the dance we were playing at. Most of the time there was someone at the door collecting the money in a cigar box which the band divided at the end of the gig. Notice the "c o c k tail" trap drum set with the bass pedal that was attached to the bottom of the large floor tom. It belonged to our manager. We had 2 amps between the entire band plus one mic and mic stand - - also notice that we had NO bass player then - - - - OUCH
WR

I enjoy reading your posts and wouldn't consider them to ever be classed as hi-jacking.

Great poster! Simple but effective. Here's one I knocked together for our next gig...

We've been rehearsing over the past few weeks with the new drummer & guitarist & should have something to share soon.

Meantime, I finally got around to snapping a pic of my rig - Yamaha bass & Warwick amp.

Looking forward to it J.R. - - - nice axe altho I'm not familiar with the Warwick products (12" or 15" cone?)- - - my son is a bassist and has quite a collection including my old mid-60s P-Bass which had bought new back then and sold it and bought it back for him - - - last Christmas he took me in the back room and showed me his new 5 string Jazz that he ?said? was has last Bass to own - - - and then I find out that he traded the old P-Bass in for it - - - kinda sad 'cause it would have been nice to have kept it in the family but I gave it to him with no strings attached (pun intended)

The Warwick has a 15" unit & a single hf horn - you can just see the edge of it near the top right of the speaker grill - it doesn't help that the guitar is in the way.

I worked in a music store & got to play around with many basses including a P-Bass. Couldn't afford one back then so I definitely couldn't afford one now.
Also had a blast on a Burns 'Bison' bass - You need to be Charles Atlas to play a whole gig with one of those. They weigh about the same as my truck!

Video clips will follow soon.

In the meantime, our drummer recorded some of the recent sessions as reference for his own benefit. These clips are without the keys player Mark as he has been teaching a fair bit lately. So here we are getting up to speed on some of the material.

Still way too much symbal going on for my liking, but it's early days & plenty of time for ironing out the bugs.

I feel like I've missed out on this thread, having not heard many of these jams yet. Very nice, you're a talented bass player, J~R. I hope your buddies don't take that for granted, it's a hard thing to come by. Music is very appropriate to the title of the thread. Quite jamming.

If I could get the time off work, I think it'd be an experience just to be there.
Thanks for the heads up.

Recorded at the session this afternoon, John Coltrane's 'Equinox'. Just a few tweeks & it's ready for keys to join in.

A few clips from Thursdays rehearsal, this time it's Caravan ~ The Weasil ~ Coming Home Baby ~ Mercy Mercy Mercy & The Chicken. Still lacking keyboards at this point & a few minor details to sort out, but I'm pleased with the 'feel', which is what I've been trying to get these guys to create.

The keys player says he'll definitely join us next week, so hopefully you guys can expect to hear more or less some finished tunes.

Nice, what chord are Y'all going to in the first chord change? Seems like we always used a minor but it's been a long time. We ?tried? to copy Booker T's version but we never did it that well I might add.

Rather than go from the root of G to the 4th (C) as you'd expect, we jump to a sharpened 5th (Eb).
The keys player suggested it & it works. It's basically a minor blues.
