The Official GT off-topic chat and general gubbins thread...

It's occured to me that GT doesn't really have a place for the regulars to hang out and just generally talk about stuff, whilst pretty much all the other forums have one. And yes, you could go into the Pit for that kinda stuff but let's face it, The Pit is kind of scary.

So now we've got one too, and it's all shiny and new. I don't expect it to stay that way but feel free to try it out and see if you like it.

Usual site rules apply regarding gore, porn and that bloody pear but we'll aim to keep things a little relaxed - however this is a new thing for Guitar Techniques so Freepower, your NEW mod Tostitos and myself will probably let this run for a while and see how it pans out, and if we think it needs stricter regulation we'll filter that down to you all.

This might not even work, I mean for all I know you could all hate each other and not have a civil word to say between the lot of you but hopefully you'll have something nice to say.

Knock yourselves out guys

Hello

None of you have probably seen me before unless you frequent the bass forum, but I'm helping out here now too so I'll try and be more frequent and hopefully get to know you all in Guitar Techniques. Hooray for the chat thread!

Ahh, cool cool, I've been thinking about trying to make this forum more welcoming to bass players for a while but I don't know enough about bass picking hand technique to really do it myself

In other news... I am now 26. Also Bioshock Infinite is out. Only one of these things is good...

I don't even own a proper smartphone, feel like I'm missing something since I'm a Computer Science student! Bioshock Infinite is seriously good though, if I didn't have other things to be doing I'd be playing it right now...

Being someone who once had and lost a Galaxy S2, smartphones are really fun and awesome and stuff but you're not missing much (except for even more ways to procrastinate) if you don't get one.

A new mod with experience in bass seems like a really sensible idea, welcome!

My name is Cameron, and I'm from Seattle, WA (US). I'm a fine arts major at Washington State University wrapping up my fourth year, and I'm a bassist. I'm sure I can help with any bass related questions, but I don't play guitar at all so unfortunately I have zero expertise with any guitar-particular techniques (which I guess is mostly right hand technique).

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. And for not pulling out the torches and pitchforks at the sight of the word "bass."

Meh, I make a big thing about getting older for the crowds, as it were, but really... nothing much has changed with my age since I was about 18, everything that has changed has been a product of something completely different.

Obviously I can't speak for everyone or for every age but so far... meh, I am unimpressed by the ravages of time

If I ever get out of the age range for either of those things I don't know what I'd do with my life D:

Actually I decided today to look for a random chat thread in here because I have so many thoughts about my playing that I can't seem to nail down into a useful thread. So this might be handy. Certainly won't reach Pit status, but it could be good.

Like how I'm trying to find the weak link in my setup, but I think it's only because I know deep inside my Ibanez GSA60 is the weak link. It's my baby, though.

No antisocialism here, this thread just needs a touch more beer is all. Either that or I'm too used to the bass forum chat.
