Firstly, a very big hello to new readers – do have a dig through the archives where you’ll find posts on bass players, bass gear and all things bass. You can sign up to the blog either via the RSS feed (here or up the top via the RSS button) or via email.
For those reading via RSS you’ll notice that I’ve now switched the blog to a full feed, that should mean you can now read the posts with out having to make an extra click. Do still keeping adding your comments though! I’m still just an email away - Benjamin @ bassguitarblog.com - always happy to hear from you, especially with news, tips or pointers to interesting bass things.
There’s a special treat for subscribers:- in the email and RSS feed during the next month I’ll be sharing details of how to enter a draw to win one of 5 rather fantastic prize packs courtesy of the very nice people at D’Addario. The collection of goodies includes a Planet Waves strap, XL strings and a bass insert pick. The pic is a very good way of answering the “Plectrums – To Pick or Not” dilema, since it is designed for the bass player. Its rubber outer pick accepts different inserts of varying thicknesses for soft to hard attack, even down to finger-plucked tone.
If you are already a subscriber, sit tight, if you aren’t, what are you waiting for?
