Re: bass guitar entries.

These decisions are not mine alone to make.
I will alert Justin and Lieven to the question and report back with our collective thoughts.

No bass.
Sorry.

No bass.
Sorry.

Glad I never said that "I'd eat my hat" if there'd be an issue with playing a bass.  ;D

Hope you'll still let rip on the bass and share with us, Fox ... your performances and productions are always a treat.

No need to apologise close, and I'm glad it's been clarified - I mentioned opening a can of worms, as others might have started inquiring about various other stringed instruments.

That's still the plan :D The restrictions from this competition are inspiring.

Me too.
Now that you've found the hat as a video prop I think we'd all miss it! :)

Bass isn't really a guitar anyway is it?  it's barely a musical instrument if you ask me.  OK this way I think it is

Although no looper to create a backing track.

Not that I was intending to enter this competition anyway. But I'm slightly surprised at this. I would have thought looping would have been acceptable as long as it was "live" (e.g. part of the performance, no prerecorded loops).

I guess, to an extent, looping confers an unfair advantage on those who have the facilities and can do it, especially as it's possible (with fx) to build up a whole orchestra of sounds.

Maybe a specific looper based competition would be an idea for the future.

Cheers,
