  1. Happy Birthday majikman!

  2. Happy Birthday majikman!

  3. Play the songs you wanna play!If they are too hard, just use riff repeater to slow them down and then when you are comfortable, speed up a bit. Choose the coolest, most difficult bass lines you can think of and start nice and slow... Music is about feeling. Play the music that makes you feel good and when you are able to play it properly at the right speed, the rewards will be that much sweeter than if you played an old music just because it's easy enough for you. I suggest Hysteria and The Lemon Song ;)
  4. Thank you. It really is incredible. It has it's uhhh... character quirks though hahaha - the tuning head for the E string a a bit sloppy and the nut is very worn down so the strings are way too close to the fret board up by the head so they make all sorts of buzzes when they shouldn't and tracking down a nut that will fit the old gal is turning out to be quite difficult. I ordered got on online from some place that assured me it would fit a '73 - '74 Jazz Bass but it is maybe 3mm too wide :/ It cost me 17,500,00 South African Rands which is 1,048.43 EUR
  5. Aww gonna miss you my Funky French friend. I know your new bands bottom end is gonna be more than taken care of ;)
  6. Just started making play through videos. If any of you charters would like videos to use as play through's on your pages, lemme know... as long as its BASS!

  7. Wahey! Fantastic! Such a shame there is so little footage like this.
  8. Here you go @@justgimmethefunk I haven't taken any pictures yet myself so here are some the guy who sold it to me took and used in his ad which I was lucky enough to find. http://screencast.com/t/kfLbaLrI6li http://screencast.com/t/CDtne1jIsNEV http://screencast.com/t/ZiqYitYHptm http://screencast.com/t/1fnc8uBETu http://screencast.com/t/tDw10dyUd According to guitardaterproject.org: Your guitar was made at the Fullerton Plant (Fender - CBS Era), USA in the Year(s): 1973 - 1974 I am a very happy boy! An old American Fender Jazz!!!!!!! The paint job might not be original but it still makes me feel like Bootsy Collins playing with James Brown hahaha
  9. Guess who is the proud and totally stoked owner of a 1973 American Standard Fender Jazz Bass :tada:
  10. Its an "early wireless hookup" according to the Standing in the Shadows of Motown book which has this pic in it. The receiver is the little gadget with the antenna sitting on top of the piano. And according to t he book, that is Uriel Jones on thh drums ;)
  11. :plus1: :plus1: :plus1: :plus1: :plus1: :plus1: :plus1:
  12. HHahaha don't be silly @@justgimmethefunk! I know that and I was just joking about you "taunting" me. I am looking forward to that day very much because I know you are right!
  13. lol thanks for making me feel like I made the right decision :P
  14. Naah. I didn't :( A Fender expert here in Cape Town told me it wasn't worth what the guy was asking and reluctantly, I let it slip away. But the next bass I buy will almost certainly be a Fender Jazz - just like the one in my avatar lol ;)
