Re: Real Band Dilemma....

I'm really lucky. I'm in a band that has 4 members all with similar priorities. We all work and we all have families. Funnily enough a previous bass player was a cop and he had no difficulties in...

I have a couple of things that may help.

Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

I need to wear shoes- I hate the feeling of a pedal on my foot without one, but that's where any specifics stop. I don't like very grippy soles as I move my foot about on the pedal a lot- how anyone...

Re: The "I wish I hadn't opened my big mouth" thread ;)
