Hey Bro! :)
Yeah ... and it can be quite a challenge when you're used to playing a song a certain way at certain positions. I remember a few times playing with Bryan M. and Don J. when that happened. It really throws you off for a few moments!
NOTE: Personally, I've never broken anything except the "A" string. Odd.
(Jesus Undying Love And Salvation)
I still haven't been able to break a bass string. You've been playing much longer, I suppose it will happen to me eventually. Some players are very aggressive with their style, so ???? I went and saw YES in St Pete last week, and I would have to say that Chris Squire probably breaks strings frequently - haha! String quality is better than it was "back in the day" I assume as well. I let my Bass Pro do my set-up and I just have to do the tweeking. I've been trying the "Blue Steel" strings on this last round, and I really like tone. Twice the price, but hey!
Hey Bro! :)
Mom did say you went to a YES show. Awesome huh? I first saw them back circa '78, with the circular, rotating stage and round overhead PA. It was at the hockey arena down in Detriot -- Olympia I think it was called. Then I saw them again on the "Masterworks Tour." (2001?) Great misicians.
Blue Steel Huh? Rounds?
Peace from Above!
These days I use D'addario Pro Steels 40-100 - bright & bouncy. Used to use Ken Smith Round Stainless Steel, but are not easy to find. Prior to that, Rotosound Round Stainless Steel.
