I could definitely live with having a 5. I get a lot of use out of my 6, all the way up the C string, but it's nothing I couldn't do without, or (mostly) just transpose onto the G string. I'd shoot puppies for a Dingwall Super P/J 5.

The SR706 plays alright, my SR500 is my absolute favourite bass, it plays like a dream. The SR706 is very similar, just, you know, wider.

Personally my preference is not for wider necks but for a 6 string neck it's pretty accommodating.

Current cravings are:

Bass - Ibanez SR4045E
Rig - Aguilar DB210 (Boss Tweed)
Other - TC Electronics Polytune Stompbox / new bass strap

I played an awesome show last night. I also organized it all. We packed the place real nice. And I had this idea to have a giveaway, which everyone got on board with. So we made this random funny poster congratulating the winner, we included copies of our latest EP and album, one band donated and EP, and one band donated a t-shirt. During the last band's set they took a short break and we announced the winner and called them up on stage to receive the gift. It was a lot of fun.

Sounds fun, did you sell tickets for the give-away or was their door ticket the raffle ticket?

The prize was awarded to the 53rd person in the door, a completely arbitrary number that I picked about two weeks ago. The poster read: "Congratulations! You had the 53rd best time of your life on April 8th, 2011, with Capital H, Lake Of The Wood, and Letterbomb!" And all the members of all the bands signed it, too.

Is it normal to keep a list of who comes in in what order over there?

So, my professor put a bunch of multiple-choice quizzes online, all of which have unlimited retakes, are purely for extra credit, show you afterward which answers were right and wrong. At max, I will only have to take each quiz 4 times (if I just write down my correct/incorrect attempts to get maximum extra credit, leading me to >100% in the class.

Hello easy GPA boost.

I don't think it's normal anywhere unless you are having a contest and the door man is cool with it.

Man, I can't stand Jay-Z. But I'm a Tech N9ne fanboy, so what do I know?

Never listened to Tech N9ne, but heard some good feedback about the music. One day I'll get round to it.

As long as it's better than Wiz Khalifa, I'll be happy. Though I do like one Wiz Khalifa track. Mostly because it samples Chrono Trigger for its main beat ^_^

Any of these are good Tech tracks to check out:

"Low"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFQjmc0CqD0&feature=fvst

"Show Me A God"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=900ScDcIHvE

"Welcome To The Midwest"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zLnA3wXReY

"Imma Tell"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2FR2HpUpz4

"Devil Boy"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn08XVpIMiY

"The Rain"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Md9a2txtZI

"Melancholy Maze (intro skit)" + "Welcome To My World"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KFZZw4ag88
This last one is kinda shitty quality, but I wanted to show you one with his sick intro as well.

Different kinda vibe to his voice than usual, very relaxed.

I have trouble accepting a 9 as a replacement for an "i" though .

Me too - it's so weird. I mean, I think it looks cool when written, but I just don't understand how it's even a substitution.

inorite.

I'm surprised I like anything by Wiz. I'm surprised that the concept of a video game beat hasn't produced something horrible (the amount of FF7 rap remixes I've heard... oh dear) for once.

I just keep track of how many people come in to make sure the money is right at the end of the night. For something like last night, just ask the right person their name. In the case of last night, I knew the person so I didn't need to ask.

What should my next pedal build be?

Small Stone Phaser clone or one of these tube dirt pedals modified for bass:

If you want a real challenge you should build a multi-tap tape delay.

I'm not looking for something seriously challenging; just projects that sound fun and will produce a pedal I'm interested in trying.
