  1. thank you for setting up the new collaboration!
  2. Thanks! I would love to join in. I stepped away from the computer the other day when I was asking if the collabs were active and just got a chance to get back on here. Wow, yall move fast as i saw a new collab started. I hope you get some relief from your ailments soon. I totally understand how that can be in regards to playing.
  3. Was this the most recent collaboration? I haven't been around often but I did always enjoy the chance to work on these group songs. I would love to do another one if there is still any interest.
  4. Probably cost ineffective repair for a cheap combo amp and I don't know any electronic repairs in the area.
  5. Thanks everyone for your advice. I'm looking into all the options mentioned above. I'm thinking of getting a modeler and either a tube amp or solid state or frfr. I'll just run the bass through the guitar setup and play on a really low volume for practice. It should be ok.
  6. I was just browsing on Musician's Friend for 4 string basses. No purchase today but once I get a past a certain lesson in the course, it will be reward time.
  7. Hey, I'm looking for a combo amp that I can run my electric guitar & electric bass through. I've tried the Peavey Vypyr VIP 1-3 models and all have been major disappointments. The one I bought & returned has a high pitch whine & static sound whenever the master volume is turned on. The display models in a local music store all presented with the same issues. I think it's no coincidence that that many models indicate some faulty problems straight from the factory. The reason I'm looking to shoot two birds with one stone is to clean up clutter with my current amps and get down to a much simpler setup. Additionally my current amps Ampeg Ba-108 has a non-working aux input (I use this feature heavily) while my Kustom KG1 lacks sufficient tone controls. I'm wondering if I should just get a decent 12" bass combo amp and run an electric guitar through it? Or maybe a keyboard amp since it should cover a broader range of frequencies?
  8. What number?! I see nothing at all. LOL I passed the test which it confirms I'm a guitarist. lol! (Of course I happened to be looking at buying a guitar today. lol)
  9. Would it be ok to post bass recordings? It is a form of guitar...at least in name. I don't currently have any acoustic or electric guitar songs ready but I have a few bass recordings of me playing along to a backing track.
  10. Ouch, I missed seeing that chord. You may eventually learn to grip that particular version of the movable two chord. It is quite a bit a stretch. I'm barely over 5ft and my hands are small. I can grip it in isolation (but haven't tried switching chords with it) but my hand & fingers tend to lean backwards at a sharp angle and it feels really uncomfortable. I'm not too worried about perfecting that form of the chord because physical limitations do exist for some of us. There are alternate versions I can use without injuring my hand.
  11. I didn't post that link. Someone referred it to me so unfortunately I couldn't tell you the exact video lesson it is. The lesson should be easy to find though. I think it was around November 2017- early Jan 2018 live lesson.
  12. I'm still studying. I have been ill on and off since Oct. 2018 so my guitar playing has been pretty nil. I do find a few minutes every now and then to play a few chords and surprisingly I still retain the speed and grips, especially for barres which shocked me. I remember how hard I worked to get basic and barre chords down. I don't ever want to back slide so maintaining what I have is motivation for me to continue a little at a time. I hope to feel better soon. I'm half way through the course right now.
  13. This is so great to watch. I remember some of the screen names and wow, it's a whole different story to see the faces behind the screen actually playing. What a treat to watch.. Thanks, Opie! I feel like I was sitting in the front row.
