What instrument should you play?

Bass Guitar
You're the time keeper. You're the studs behind the drywall. You usually just back up the guitars but every now and then you bust out a solo of your own and everyone loves it. You're not really recognized enough and you don't get the credit you should. Oh well, shit happens.

Upgrading to MySQL 5 [Part 1]

Apparently the MySQL 5 is very powerful so for a moment I'll contribute my geeky time not just on Oracle...Beware, if you're doing an upgrade, make sure you remove the file /etc/my.cnf in order to start the service.

No title yet

I've just completed this solo which I've been working on for the past couple of weeks. It is just 60 seconds long, and most of the time I've spent in it was basically in mastering special techniques (coming with the tune didn't take me that long, although I have to confess that the piece is quite original). This composition is basically made up of two parts - The first part consists of a simple melody made up of natural harmonics. The second part is basically slap groove 2 with slight modifications. The drum pattern is set to a four fourths bassdrum/snare alternate beats (105bpm). I won't post a video of this composition but I promise you that I'll play it during White Crimson's gigs...

Bass Blister

I have blisters on me fingers!

Playing bass is definitely playing with pain.
I have been playing for 5 years and it has become a fact of life. Maybe I just like it. The above is a result of playing Slap Groove 2 along with breaking the 'G' string twice :)
