    I use mine at least once a week, but it still only has 5 strings (broke one months ago). If another breaks, I'll just call it a pitchbent bass.

    Now that's being a lazy soundscapist.

      Joe Bonamassa really got our attention with those comments, wow. Now to be fair, I like his playing. I think he's got a tremendous talent, and he's obviously worked hard. I'm pretty eclectic, in fact, there's not much guitar music I don't like. But he's way out of line with those comments. Being a great guitar player (my opinion) doesn't make you a great human, nor does it make you wise; those comments are small-minded and hurtful. Maybe he feels that he needs to pander to some audience that the piece was intended for; maybe the context was a beer-drinking mockfest. I don't know.

      But I'm old enough to not get too upset about ego-centric, prejudiced, self-serving remarks in any context. "These guys can barely play a chord....." Huh?.... who is he talking about? Most of the ambient guys/gals I follow and respect have really solid guitar chops. I've been playing over 40 years, including 3 working years in a Gypsy Jazz band. It's not only about chops, Joe. My old ears want to hear new and unusual sounds now. I've been listening to rock and pop and jazz since the 50's. I love that stuff, and it's brought a lot of joy to my life. But, if I wasn't sort of sick of that sound by now, I'd wonder how creative and musical I really am.

      I love ambient music because of what it does to my mind and body. It's new and fresh and, like jazz, but unlike rock and pop, there aren't any rules. Guys go all over the place with their ideas.

      I just wish Jimi Hendrix was still alive and he had my pedal-board and my Strat. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't sound like a 12-bar-blues........

        Big Plus One to that!

        I mean, he was doing weird stuff as it was, way back when...

        I've just dug out Electric Ladyland and played my two favourite tracks, And the Gods Made Love plus 1983... (A_Merman_I_Should_Turn_to_Be)... Awesome album that, IMO

          Yip. Love it. Think Hendrix ballads are unbeatable - excellent sense of melody

            a guy i work with is approaching retirement age, works at the lab part time but has spent his life conducting orchestras also makes tv programmes about the arts for local tv (too busy, by half if you ask me) told me that ambient and electronic can never be art. that said, i don't think he sees jazz as an art form either. :/

              They'll always be people like that, I watched a documentary on artist Chris Burden recently (I guess a performance artist initially, had people shoot him and stuff) and it featured the late art critic Brian Sewell, calling Burdens work rubbish and listing off all the legitimate forms of art he found acceptable. Even an art pleb like me could see his list was excluding so many avenues of creativity, traditional ones too.

              So it goes.

                Well, you are both wrong. Everybody's wrong.

                While art can be almost anything, for it to be truly fine art there has to be something blue in it. Or cinnamon-based.

                I have an art degree, so you know that I know what I'm talking about.
