    They don’t care if you play originals, covers, if you suck, if you’re good.

    Dilly, dilly.

    (Bass player, originals band): So, how’d you like the show?

    (Patron): Sounded great, bro!  I never heard almost everyone of your songs. Was that a couple of clams I heard throughout the set?

    (Bass player): Nope… we played it just the way you’ve never heard it.

    (Patron): Whaaaaa?

    (Bass player): Gotta go.

     

     

    LOLOL…..”If we wrote it we can play it however we like, clams and all”.   😛

    What’s on everyone’s ticket for today?

    I’d like to do some one on one bike training with at least one of them, today.  I believe we have rain coming in again, but not til afternoon.  Looks great right now, but I’m waiting for Hef’s announcement of coffee being on, first.  Definitely, practicing… not sure what else, as I’m usually the last to know about the important stuff.

    Hope one and all have a great day!

    Are the boys just getting into bike riding or is there some specific kind of riding you’re getting them up for?

    Oh yeah, it does.  Payin’ the man is never easy or fun.

    My last year was so bereft of commerce due to the COVID that there wasn’t much complexity to deal with.  Thank God for some stimulus payments and an active stock market.

    Seeing who has the most potential to drop the training wheels.  I have a volunteer, so that’s a start.  It’s a lot easier when we go to the lake, as the ‘sidewalks’ are plenty wide.

    It helps when they listen, too… which is celebrated every time they do.

    Wife cut the grass, yesterday… well before the rain.  Looks really good, too.  Not sure if I got the first step down quick enough to prevent the crabgrass from germinating, but the fertilizer is working.  Time to put more line on the trimmer, though… keeps the lines nice and neat.

    Today in the shop for a preamp install, one of the last discontinued former “entry level” Marco Bass MV models, a semi-sibling to my fretless four. As soon as Marco started doing Jazz Bass knockoffs no one really wanted to buy these, even for crazy low prices. So only endorsers and friends get these leftovers now, and still for stupid small change for what they are. I’ll have to get it outdoors for a real pic when it stops raining, the wood figure on both the board and the body didn’t really come through at all. This bass sounds insane, easily in the $5K+ boutique tier IMO. As usual it’s been a pretty big challenge for me though, since Marco is constantly tweaking his pickup designs and a one size fits all preamp just won’t do it justice. All of a sudden I’m getting quite a few preamp commissions and I’m finally getting into the black with that, yay!

    I’m not really into wood pick up covers, but I like that, with the contrast.

    Those are temp knobs from my shop stash, I expect it’ll end up with wood ones that match the pickup covers and/or the light parts of the board. Personally, I think chrome hardware might be good for this bass too. In any case, I put in a decent playing session on it last night with the preamp I built specifically for it and am really impressed by how huge and nasty it can sound. Hope that’s what the owner wants!

    brisket and microbrew

    That would do it for me.

    😛

    They do a pretty nice “smoked corned beef” too, which my people would call pastrami. But smelling this stuff in their smoker across the street most days for the last several years has made it a lot less appetizing unfortunately. OTOH, they do have 14 beers on tap and they always have a few dark ones in the rotation.

    I’ll stay in their shed, and promise to only come out at night.

    Heh, this is just a dive bar, and pandemic influenced stocking. Their other much divier bar had 28 on tap IIRC. You could easily get there without anything made more then twenty miles away, but pretty much nobody actually does that.

    @NSYMCE

    Have you ever heard of Crel Pickups? I can’t find much about them other than they are a French company with a decent reputation.
    my new Yammie fretless is coming with two Crel pups and an Aguilar OBO-3 preamp installed.

    Yeah, I’ve heard the name but beyond that I know nothing.
