    Words of Wisdom

    New bass player fired after 2 rehearsals

    Could be any instrument/member. Play with people at your level. Nothing wrong with trying, you never know if they would work out. But at least you found out about the work ethic early. Should also fire the drummer for laughs.

    What makes pickups sound different from each other?

    The variation in magnets and the turns to me. I will admit I am too ear-ringy to tell the difference in the wire quality if there is an audible difference. Even with the cicadas in my head I can tell the difference in some pickup types and poles. Obviously this assumes parameters like position...
