    Do you pay hundreds of pounds a year for a season ticket to see Black Dyke and are the players on 50 grand a week?

    Whats happening at Dyke. Brett gone??

    I've got another definition ****- someone who has as much chance of playing for Black Dyke as me bedding Kylie but still feels qualified to badmouth them. p.s. I would never say a bad word about Kylie.

    Super E's...

    Use 2nd for a bright sound, 2 and 3 is better for tuning but not as clear. Practise chromatics C to F to C repeated, slow slurred crotchets at various volumes using fingering C=0, C#=2,D=0,D#=2,E=2,F=123. Treat this as a muscle building excercise, just a few minutes every other day, overdoing it...

    BBb Bass Position Sought - West Yorks

    In a climate where good BBb bass players are as rare as hen's teeth I can personally recommend to 'any' band that they snap this guy up. Class player who also does a mean band website!! Yo Matt!

    Great result for Nitten and Ramsay. Must have been particularilly sweet after a year in the first section. Still amazed that a band with players of the calibre of Neil P and his brothers could have been down in the first place. Well done guys, Mike Fox Pennine Brass
