What a week!
The Exeter gig was sold out three weeks in advance, the Petersfield gig was sold out, the clinic at Basstech was standing room only, the Brighton gig was standing room only (no idea what the fire limit was for the room!). Blimey, this solo bass stuff is really catching on!
We’re having so much fun, it’s unreal. Michael’s been playing through my amp set up, which means that I can now also loop and process him as well, which has opened up a whole new soundworld for us to explore! And seeing as how I nicked the whole bass + looping deal from him in the first place, it’s no wonder that he reacts to what’s happening in the loop so unbelieveably well. I can throw just about anything at him, and it works!
Fortunately last night was recorded, by two different people, and videoed for us, so I’m looking forward to seeing some of that!
If you came to one of the gigs – thankyou very much. The audiences have been great, and the feedback’s been marvellous.
And to cap it all, I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard as I have in the car on the way to the gigs in a long time.
Miss the next three gigs at your peril!
