Bass guitar for Dummies :D

Singer was a real find - he plays a mean rhythm guitar, too.

Yes, nice little pedal that Joyo thing - in fact the guitarist lent it me, but they are only £34 new. Mimic of a Tech 21 Blonde - so think Fender guitar amp. Am tempted to try the California now - the Mesa voiced version, which also apparently works very well with bass.

Tidy, Mr H. Very tidy. :cool:

I can't speak to what's going on under the drummer's hat, but the burning question I'm left with is how all you chaps are managing to keep your hair in such good fettle in this gazillionth week of lockdown. I look like an extra from an episode of The Sweeney. :D

...who, irritatingly, still looks like James May.

As does Brian May.

Look like Brian May, I mean. Not James May. That would be silly.

I'll shut up.

Ha - the reason the drummer wore a hat was to hide his bald patch :D
I happened to have a hair cut about a day before lockdown was announced, so that's kept me going OK.... not quite tempted to dye it yet though.... ;)
