There's come a few clips from a show i played in London this tuesday. Not the best sound quality & wasnt super happy with the sound (got an svt2 instead of svt4 pro which i expected), but there's dingwall footage and there shall be more =) Entire gig in 4 parts. Camera doesnt seem to pick up too much lows tho. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYQhb-MVES4 And a couple of the pics i found: [img:1dluop0b]http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/196330_10150466288020235_709285234_18011486_3622612_n.jpg[/img:1dluop0b] [img:1dluop0b]http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/188867_10150220010632501_528992500_9140847_5462238_n.jpg[/img:1dluop0b]

1st gig with the ABZ 5. All the people kept asking me about the fanned frets and commenting how good it sounded :D [img:m6235ekm]http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq268/IvanBassist/IMG_0355.jpg[/img:m6235ekm]

My AB, SJ, and Combustion all have small battle scars even though I try to protect them. I run from guitarists when they cross over to my side to "rock out" - you know the move. Ahhh the dangers of rock and roll.... Mark

Having a real performer who knows how to call the changes right and one who knows how to wheel a band, mix it, and work the crowd into shape is good fun. The performer in the picture was much more of a singer performer but we did the dancehall act too and its really just good fun heads up playing...when it works it really works.

Here's a picture of me and my ABII from a gig my band played in February. The colour stage lights made my friend's photos really amazing.

Yesterday I went to a rehearsal for a regular gig that our band will hopefully get. Our regular drummer could not make it, so a friend subbed for him and he asked us to go to his studio. The latter one is the drummer of a Power Metal band (they have 3-4 CD's out) so we understand he is a heavy hitter with great double bass drum to augment his expression. I had my Prima with me (tuned haf a step flat for singer's sake) and I plugged into a GK head and cabs (2x10's and 15") that the drummer uses with his band. He commented on the looks as soon as I pulled the bass out of the gigbag. On the first break I asked him of his opinion of the bass. he replied "In my group, we play fast and complicated stuff and it's sounds muddy! With today's bass sound it feels as I'm taking a walk on a mountain top, being already there, and seeing for miles!!! All come clear and full, not harsh, annoying or deafening loud. What is the name of the bass? Can you please come to our rehearsal next week to check the bass with my band?" Need I say more? Dingwalls make my day!!!

The story goes like this: The band arrives at 12 noon after 4hrs of driving. We start unpacking and setting up under a hot and humid summer sky (35C and 70-80% humidity). The sound engineer (God forbid if he ever was one) just left us a PA with no monitors for the band and just 2 active monitors for the band's projection to the audience and then left :shock: !!!. We brought the rest of the equipment (mics, cables, mic stands etc) and we set everything up by ourselves. Next to the house there was a church and there was a funeral so there was no chance for soundcheck. We left the equipment there, all set up and ready. Although i left the EA i800 and the Markbass 210 combo there, i took my padauk faced Prima with me (I always carry my DW with me, no matter what). We drove 20km to our hotel and by 8 we started driving back to the place where we'd perform. Half way there i realized i had forgotten my Prima at the hotel room!!! :oops: . Had to drive back and get it. I made it back on time. It was a great night and we put on a great show. I have to admit that we were completely un-rehearsed!!!! The guitar player had just gotten back from Vienna only few hours before the gig, from a research project and had not touched his guitar in 2 months!!! The keyboard player had not seen the palylist till the moment we arrived there (and he pulled all the melodies on the spot there just listening to the female singer and myself singing) and he is in the middle of his finals for his post grad degree!!! The female singer she was absent from most the rehearsals (finishing her degree as well), and myself i had not played some of the songs we were asked on the spot to perform in 10 years!!! And last but not least, the drummer had not heard the songs cause his hi-fi broke the day before i gave him the cd with the playlist. Lesson of the day: LEAD, FOLLOW or GET OUT OF THE WAY. Those who know lead, the rest need to follow with conviction. Here is one pic of my Prima from my cellphone. More pics to follow tomorrow. The stupid pc does not reognize my Sony DV cam and i've recorded the gig on that.
