Posted by Archie79 on 04 October 2016 - 04:57 PM

Is there anyway this can be made into a patch for the less capable people that don't know what they are doing? lol

Is there anyway to rollback to the old version without a backed up copy? Can't imagine playing rocksmith without AC/DC.

#194379 Forearm fatigue when playing fast bass?

Posted by Archie79 on 05 January 2016 - 05:52 AM

I normally get the fatigue when playing fast between 1 and 3 and 3 and 5 frets just because I have to really try and stretch my fingers. The force that is applied to the string with your finger I find can make a big difference. Since I have been making a point of only using the minimum required pressure I find I have less tension which enables me to play faster, move about easier and less fatigue. A short scale bass does sound slightly different due to the tension on each string being different from a full scale. They tend to sound a bit brighter. One way to get round this is to use a set of strings the next gauge up. But most people don't tend to mind the difference in tone and for some a brighter tone is maybe a good thing. Apart from the tonal difference there is no other real draw backs if you want to call it that. There are definitely more advantages than disadvantages from playing a short scale.

#186474 My new toy has arrived

Posted by Archie79 on 14 November 2015 - 01:33 PM

I'm like a kid in a sweetie shop. I can't afford a tube amp and have made do with a solid state one and also use a boss OBD-3 overdrive pedal but it just didn't have that growl I wanted for old school Rock. I bought an EBS ValveDrive pedal which is basically a drive/preamp pedal powered with a valve tube. It is the bomb. It wasn't cheap, I paid about £250 which at a guess is about $375 but it is worth every penny. I have now turned my Eden solid state Bass amp in to a beast at the fraction of the cost. Would recommend this to any Bass player in a heartbeat and it is by far my best/favourite pedal.
