I was listening to some random Elton John today, was a big fan in the early years and bought all his albums. Saw him live twice also. Must be strange though to have peaked 47 years ago and still be raking it in, pre 1974 I loved everything he did but since then? A handful of decent songs. Having said that once you put out a record like Goodbye Yellow Brick Road the only way is down.

I will never forget this performance. Showing my age, I guess.

Not listening to them but just reading an article on bass guitars with extra strings and mention was made of a guy called Stig Pedersen from the Danish band D-A-D who almost exclusively plays a two stringed version, how does that work @markjazzbassist?

I think it’s bottom 2 strings, it’s a gimmick.  There are 8 string basses where they double the strings, the guy from cheap trick used one, Hendrix used one on a couple tracks.  Basically a bass string and guitar string together for each one.  Kinda 12 string guitar concept for bass.  Not my thing but a cool one off sound if you can afford a ton of gear

So that'll be the same tuning as the bottom eight strings on a 12 string then, all pairs having standard tuning and an octave up? Must be bloody difficult to play, I have a 12-string but stick pretty much to chords on it.

Most play with a pick to strum.  It’s more of a gimmick (not in the bad sense) just to be used on a tune or something if you’ve got lots of cash and walls of instruments.   Yeah I have never been a 12 string fan either, I just don’t get why it exists, like I’ve never played something and thought “this needs a 12 string”

Nobody likes anything I post in here but fuck it😂

 

Well seen as your fucking it I’ll be honest didn’t really do much for me, not saying I didn’t like it but I wouldn’t care if I never heard it again. 
Now I’m going to disappear for a bit 😎😂

Not saying I don't like you but I wouldn't much care if I never heard from you again.😎

Little hooked on this band at the moment. Very unexpected drop which made me curious and so glad I've kept listening them, their album is excellent 

 

Edit: apparently the girl does all the singing, the gentle stuff and metal stuff too :wub:

You're just ancient Bill, get your Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson 78 out and wind up the gramophone😂. In fact I'll save you the bother of rooting round the attic:P

Does it destroy any credibibility I have in here to own up to the fact that I've actually listened to and liked some Taylor Swift stuff in recent weeks (I actually don't really care because I like what I like so fuck it)? Nothing challenging but she writes a good "pop" song, probably if she heard a sixty-something was liking her she'd be horrified.😂

Credibility? :huh:

Taylor Swift is fantastic, Folklore is a brilliant album.

Architects confuse the life out of me.

I must admit I was never really a fan of theirs, but their latest album (For Those Who Wish to Exist) is fantastic, thought that the orchestral version of ''Animals'' was a nice little spin too (seems that a lot of bands are doing orchestral stuff now, think it's all stemmed from Bring Me The Horizon doing a full set with one).

Unless of course you mean actual architects, in which case I'm no builder either :unsure:...

It's been going on long before BMTH. I meant more the style in general of Architects. They have some really heavy stuff but then ultra pop-like in the same song. Find it hard to listen to but they keep popping up on my metal recommendations so maybe I should just give them another go.
