That's an interesting bass Peggy's playing..  anyone know anything about it??  Tony??


He played it at Chesham last night ... for the first few songs, anyway.  It sounded good and I would have liked him to play it some more.  It is rather large and he kept adjusting his position - I don't know if he found it uncomfortable Undecided

It wasn't that Bass, it was a different one!


That makes sense as I thought he sold all his instruments a few years back when he and Chris split up.

Certainly he changed his main bass at about that time, mind you Peggy often does a sort of shoulder shuffle when playing as if he isn't entirely happy with the way the bass is set on his shoulders.

I think I am right in saying that Peggy has recently acquired a Stonebridge acoustic bass, which he played at his birthday bash. No idea what the original one in the clip was, though.

As for shuffling his shoulders, I should think after playing a bass for over 40 years, anyone would!

I just had another look at the Youtube clip and you are right - the one he had at Chesham was even bigger! Grin


I thought the electric bass sounded much better - the acoustic didn't produce a very even sound across the range of pitch.

But at least the other one was *acoustic* Wink

To back up what Malcolm has posted, Peggy has said in the past that suffers with back pain due to many years of lugging heavy bass guitars around.  As a back pain suffer myself and just a little about loads on structures, I can't say that I am suprised.

It's much more mature now.

Cropredy '83 - Simon tunes his Rickenbacker in some very tasteful shorts and Peggy opines, topless. Steady girls, he's taken....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeXnkkxdRR4&feature=related

The usual apologies for any unwitting double posting but while I'm here, Simon & Swarb doing Time To Ring Some Changes, from 1981. Blimey, you did spend a lot of time at Pebble Mill, didn't you Mr. Nicol?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq4g6aiEYWQ&feature=related

And while I'm on a roll, MotL from Broughton Castle. An impossibly youthful looking SN, and Swarb remembering to take his tab out before singing the chorus. It looks like Ralph McTell sharing/avoiding the fumes and doing a sterling finger-in-the-ear turn. Two drummers too. "See you next year" says Simon at the end. Little did he know... Cheesy

It keeps stopping after every seven or eight seconds. Sad  Is there anything I can do to correct this?

Let it load all the way to the end...ie click on it, leave it for (?) 5 mins, come back and press play again...
