    I can see how the short scale would make the B string sound better.

    Normally a longer scale makes for a better sounding, tight B string. Regular basses are 34inch, but they do 35 and 36 scale. There are also fan fret basses to maximize scale length. Amazing really. But Leo Fender did the job right in 1952 with the 'precision' bass. What a guy he was! Where would we be without his instruments? Strat, telecaster, precision, jazz and Rhodes! RIP

    Hey Joe, here's how to embed videos;

    1) Do NOT copy/paste the page url.
    2) Click the "share" button - a embed button will appear underneath/to the left.
    3) Scroll down and click the "embed" button - a blue highlighted address will appear.
    4) Copy/paste THAT address in your post.

    That was cool.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Thanks I'll remember how to do that next time.
    There were babes for sure. We would travel a few times a year around the us and canada once and meet up with other groups to put on performances and it was always a party!

    I'm trying to learn guitar, I don't have anything better to do and am always looking for new ways to annoy the neighbors!
    Anyway, I found this on another site and figured Butch needed a good laugh tonight!

    Many years ago I studied diligently with a teacher and eventually was awarded a teaching certificate myself in the bamboo flute (shakuhachi). This is a famous composition, called Haru no umi, or "Spring sea". Sometimes I would get together and perform with women okoto players, as is being done in the video. The flute was originally an instrument that Buddhist priests would play when making the rounds, sometimes to get a few alms. The monks would cover their heads down to the mouth, and were known as "priests of nothingness". Pretty much have stopped playing, I find it a lonely sound. The wind blows from nothingness to nothingness, kind of thing. It was more ok when I was single, a foreigner in a strange land, and the girls on okoto were often lovely.
