Blimey - that's even smaller than the U-bass the bass player in my band plays!

I've been meaning to ask you Jon, what's the bluegrass scene like in Australia?

Hi again Andy; Yes it was a great sounding Elec-bass BUT having Silicone rubber strings it was an unreal impossible beast to get & stay in tune; - so I bought a VGC secondhand 'conventional/slab' Korean Cort electric bass with metal strings. It's a single pickup, nice bassy tone settable. --- Jon P.
The BG scene here is getting bigger & bigger since the 70's, (altho nothing near the C&W following) - even up here in the backward (no longer) Northern States. I jam with 2 friends (not in photo) in Brisbane, (Qld capital - 2-1/2 million) - an hour's drive. The 'Redlands' near Bris. annual fest in July is 20-odd yrs old.
It 'started' in Sydney, Melbourne's long caught up too.

It's similar in the UK - Bluegrass is around, but it takes a bit of driving to enjoy it. I go to a jam in Birmingham once a fortnight and it's a 40 minute drive. Not too long but a bit of a drag on the sinking pints front.

Take it easy
