The Bass Forum Plan V4

Spring has sprung, and with it a new Forum Plan thread! For anyone who doesn't know, this is the general chat thread for the bass forum. The rest of you all know the drill.

Links to the other Forum Plan threads:
V3: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1394303
V2: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...98&page=1&pp=20
V1: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...ouncementid=143

*Note that the forum rules can be found in the first forum plan thread, or in the sticky at the top of the forum (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1597437). Please read them if you are not familiar with them.

So welcome all, to Forum Plan V4!

Shamelessly lifted from Dan's post from the last thread:

"BOTM" (Bass Of The Month)
A "BOTM" thread is a thread in which a forum user writes a review of one of their own basses including pictures, videos, sound clips or any interesting trivia of that specific bass.

"BPOTM" (Bass Player Of The Month)
In this series a user writes a bio of a bass player of their choice, including things such as life history, playing technique, gear used. Also include pics and/or videos.

"UROTM" (User Rig Of The Month)
A "UROTM" thread differs from "BOTM" because in this series a user profiles their entire bass playing setup including basses, amps and effects. The user should provide an insight into why they use the equipment that they are profiling. Once again including pictures, videos and sound clips is preferred.

Anyone wishing to volunteer themselves for any of these threads should post in this thread stating the type of thread, the subject of the thread and a month when we should expect it to be posted. We would prefer these threads to be posted at the beginning of the month as opposed to the end of the month. Once posted the thread will be stickied by a forum moderator and at the end of the month will be sent to the forum archives.

I could also do a UROTM soon. My rig has changed a fair bit since I last did one...

Edit: Jesus, my last one was 5 years ago.

5 YEARS.

WHERE HAS MY LIFE GONE.

Going out for some beers with Mr Tam and the guitarist. The pub has a whole line of beers by Clown Shoes. I like their Tramp Stamp Belgian IPA.

Cam, I may grab the rules and move them into their own thread so they are easily read in the forum.

I'd like to make the toast with my favorite drink, fernet with coke (THE argentinian drink, probably)

Also, first page, yay! And we are already talking about booze! This thread is just a great success, and it took less than one page. Let's see how it is when we reach page 500

I shall crack open a bottle of good Bourbon to celebrate the latest incarnation of this thread!



I pinched a nerve in my left shoulder, so it should help with that, too.

Gotta love "Da rules" thread. Read it just to refresh myself about the rules and to see if there were anything new. Nice working putting it together, it's clear and easy going. It seems that Mrs. Tam and Mr. Cam (LOL) are taking this new modership seriously

In a break from the norm, I went to a wine tasting tonight, so I raise a glass to all you fine people.

Was it as bad as I imagine it would be? I have never had the desire to go clubbing, nor the least bit of curiosity to see what it's like.

He probably struck out. We men tend to swear off of things when we strike out there.


Then again, it might have been a trendy club packed to the gills with poseurs. In that case, he must swear off of clubs in order to avoid becoming a mass killer.

His story is so sad. Rip brother of the low end. May bassist heaven have all the Fenders and Ampeg 810s you want.

Pubs:

1. I can wear what I want.
2. Drinks are reasonable, varied and tasty.
3. The music is always at least acceptable.
4. Seats, sometimes even comfy seats.
5. No slags and OTT-PDAs.

Clubs.

1. Have to dress smart to get into a sleaze-pit.
2. Drinks are overpriced and shite.
3. Nicki Minaj.
4. Sticky floors.
5. VD everywhere.

I just went to Treblerock and they'd shut an hour early. The lazy buggers have lost a customer due to this slight inconvenience.
