If you want, you can PM me. I will give you my brothers Email address. He raps, and is quite good at it working with the name people in "horrorcore".

If interested, Im just a PM away.
^ wouldnt that be a capacitor? Since a pot. is a variable resistor, wouldnt adding another resistor just make it brighter?

I agree, lets just wait and get owned.
Yeah, ground teh pots to them selfs. I thought you did that.
I Meant Bassists, as in them to help me, but this is great, ebven getting other guitarists opinions. Ill have to show this thread to him.

You have a lack of guitarists?

There are like 50 of them in my school. . . well, 10 if you dont count the ones who know 3 chords but still call themselves guitarists



There are 5 total guitarist in my school, 2 bassist including me, and 2 drummers. (120ish people) Im lucky I got a drummer. And by guitarist, I mean can actually play.

Then call him a giant arsehole. And tell him to have fun mindlessly playing other peoples stuff for his entire life with no sense of freedom or (good) creativity.

What did the Bassist say to the Guitarist?
Doesn't matter you can't hear him.
haha

But yeah, bands sound hollow and thin without a bassist.

You could take the piss out of his playing.. Or exclaim you know more theory than him (if you do) or put up with it, and if you find a possible new guitarist.. scare him into thinking he might get kicked out for it. Then the balls in his court.


He doesnt "beleive" in theory. He thinks you just play.

SIGGED!

Anyway, option C sounds best. Either that or learn YYZ by Rush and see how he compares to that!


Haha, I did! He was super pissed because he couldnt play it!

Ex-f*cking-xactly

This may surprise some of you, but I am a bassist. When other bassists get all arsey about people saying that bass isn't important, it annoys me. Everyone gets stick about something. Suck it up and MAKE the bass important.


You are Dr. Phil, I must beleive you!

He can, there are 2 note chords!



Seriously?


Not even joking. :S
Yeah, the new controls would be simple.

Is there a hole for the 3 knob?
Im digging that ChemicalFire.

As for why were in a band, hes teh only free guitarist in the school.
Yeah, thats them...

Hmm, Im confuzled now... Possibly a pic of the board attached to teh knobs?
My guitarist has just pissed me off (As usual) He claims basses are teh least important instrument in a band. This coming from a guitarist, If you would call himn that, who cant even play a 3 note chord! I usually end up transcribing guitar parts to where I somewhat take a load off of him so he doesnt blow/ruin a song. Apparantly he thinks hes the shit because his mom buys him new guitars like a kid at a candy shop.

Wall of rant. Now on with the subject. What do I say to him to either
A. Get rid of him (Lack of guitarists)
B. Make him better
C. Make him shut the hell up before he finds my oversized guitar up his ass
D. I commit suicide because I begin to beleive him.

Note though, he is my best friend, but Ive had enough of this.
Across your 2 outside lugs I do beleive, but wait till someone agrees/disagrees with me first..
Usually when one goes, it will litterally blow up. Note they are quite small (About the size of a 100w resistor)
Pics?
Let me guess, 1 for both tones, and 1 for volume? No I havent see none like that... Im guessing its a Fender?
So let me get this right -

You put the hot from the pickup on one lug, grounded the opposite lug, and grounded the pickup on the pot. Then ran the middle lug to the corresponding spot on a 5 way? Did you wire your pots together to where you have a line to take the ground to your jack? *Dont make a loop*

Correct me if Im wrong, but thats how it should be done...
I may be wrong (Dont Beleive I am) but it will just make your guitar brighter. Just liek a 250k pot, and a 500k...
http://parts.digikey.co.uk/1/1/46290-diode-standard-600v-2a-do-15-rl205-t.html

Theres one, but make sure that thats it. It looks like a black resistor with a silver band.

If it is it, then its 2 soldering joints. Piece of cake.
Sounds like you blew a rectifier. Good luck finding a replacement though...

Edit: Possibly an RL205?
What would you classify they're music as?
Ive been trying to play alittle Mr. Bungle (Girls of Porn, Squeeze Me Macaroni, Quote Unquote) And I have noticed they have very weird beat patterns to them. They can go from 1/2, 3/4, 4/4, 8/8 ect. all in the same song. How do you guys keep these beats down?

What effects are used in Girls Of Porn? I beleive I hear an envelope filter, and hes using slap, is that all?

There may be a few questions a bit later, Ill just edit them in.

Yes I realize its poted in the bass forum, but I would like a quick answer.

I tend to hop around and have fun. Running to the drummer, farting, and running back is a classic move because he can't escape

For slower tunes, I'm a little less liberal.


Sigged Hahahahaha.
Ummm, Girls of Porn - Mr. Bungle. So much fun.

Where would one go about getting one of these, and are there any replacements? Preferably something salvageable or we can order one.
Jazz Bass. Nuff Said.


Unless someone has a different opinion. Hehe.
What If you dont know the chord names?

Im sorry, end me now.
^ This is what Ive figured out for teh most part, but it doesnt always "flow" right.
Something Ive seemed to notice is playing a bass line that coordinates to the lyrics is somewhat simpler than root notes, because they are usually off beat.

Listen to some Rush for example. Geddy plays when he sings usually, instead of following teh guitarists pattern.
On a chord, how do you know which note is the "Root Note"? Ive noticed that certain notes in that chord if plyed on bass will stand out, while others fir perfectly, so while searching over a piece of guitar tabs, how could you spot the root notes and play along with out the bass tbas?

Sorry if that made no sense or if it appears to be random rambling.
