My old guitar tutor (who plays normal guitar but was teaching me bass) had long fingernails on his plucking hand, which he'd grown to get a specific sound when he played (he was working on some folksy style).
My fingernails happen to be getting a bit on the long side, and I thought rather than cut them, I might see what effect it has on my bass-playing.
Are long finger nails used by bass guitarists ever / for any style of music, or would I just be a weirdo?5 AnswersOther - Music7 years ago

I'm doing the classic lazy man's DIY project, making a wooden spice rack.
I'm not sure whether to glue everything together then varnish it (so the surfaces glued together don't get varnished) or to varnish first then glue it, so the glue might not hold so tight.

2 weeks ago I hurt the front of my hip playing basketball (I think from a collision). I thought it would be a quick recovery, but for 2 weeks it's been sore and I've had a lot of pain in the muscle when lifting my foot up from the ground.

I play on a short basketball team, and often have to fill in at the low post (I prefer small forward).
We usually come up against close zone defenses, so there are usually a couple of defenders around me.
I've been pretty ineffective playing low post and need to create space better and find decent shots more.
Any advice how?2 AnswersBasketball8 years ago
I've recently joined a (generally short-ish) basketball league.
I'm slightly taller than average always used to play small forward, but my team often want me to play low post (due to lack of height on our team).
Today I was pretty ineffective in offense, being at a height disadvantage, anxious about 3 second violations, and playing against a tight 2-3 zone that meant even if I beat my man I still ran into their center.
How do I go about playing a more effective low post offensive game?1 AnswerBasketball8 years ago

While they're off, I'd like to clean up my fretboard and do any other maintenance that's easier with the strings off.

He's signed for £30k a week, for 5 years.
Given his potential and his performances this season, and considering what his team mates are likely to be on, should he be getting more?
Or is £30k about right for him?
