Well as I finish studying this summer, it is time that I did what I have been thinking about on and off for a couple of years - joining a band!
I am hoping to find a couple of guys my age who just want to get together and blast out some songs, nothing serious, no plans for super-stardom, etc.
Part of this is to buy a new bass guitar and amp. I have got my eye on a guitar - one that I saw on the day I met up with Agg79:
This would be great fun to play, and would work nicely alongside my 5 string bass:
I have been looking at a few amps too - it is amazing how things have changed since I was last in a band. My old gigging amp was 100watts, weighed a ton and was almost as tall as I am. New ones I am looking at are a third of the size and weight and can kick out 400watts!
BTW - I hear that Lent starts tomorrow. Any suggestions on what I should give up?
