    Hello everyone.
    My name is Chris. Alias Hugo Agogo. Also the Professor/ Mad Professor & many other unspeakable names !
    Hence the username. And for loving Batfink.
    I initially played guitar but have played bass for about 35 years. Recording & writing.
    Played mainly in a funk/disco band called Vinyl State doing Earth wind & fire & Ohio Player’s covers.
    I have been working on theory for improvisation for the last twelve months.
    I’m being taught by my brother.
    I just want to say to everyone that I love your forum & thank you for welcoming me to it.

    There’s a forum member (who’s quite quiet at the moment) on here who you would hit it off a lot with that kind of music!

    Hey Chris;

    Welcome to the forum! Cool that you have so many years under your belt in the Funkin' world!! I too am a huge fan of Funk (I always spell it with a capital F, that is how much I love it) and did a couple of albums (as Da' Mutta' Funka's) worth of original Funk if you are interested. I put this stuff in a link on the Studio & Stage, but here is a direct link if you would like to check it out: https://damuttafunkas.bandcamp.com/

    Be sure to post some of your stuff in the Studio & Stage section if you would like to share any of your material!

    I have a spreadsheet I put together a while back with a lot of guitar patterns and theory if you are interested. PM me and I will send you a link if you would like to check it out. Not exactly world class (could be better organized, may be a mistake or two), but chock full of valuable information IMO!

    Happy postin'!

    Hi all! I'm an Italian pianist and hammond organ player, recently crushed on guitars xD truly in love with my sweet 2021 Dodgem Blue SS with maple fretboard. It's my daily study buddy.

    Welcome, Andrea. !
    Glad you found us.
    How do you move that Hammond around? My buddy played drums for a Southern Rock cover band and the keyboardist INSISTED he was using his Hammond. That thing weighed a metric ton! I always made sure to show up late and leave early when they played. That thing wrenched my back the first time I volunteered to help set up their gear.:)
    Nothing beats that sound, though.
    Anyway, definitely post up some pics of your SS when you can and don’t forget to put one in your avatar.:p:D

    Thanks buddy I appreciate your kind message.
    I managed to have a little listen to some of your music. Very impressed, very original.
    I’m a massive Tackhead fan. I love industrial funk. Your stuff definitely has that feel to it.

    Hi DISTORT6, I admit that I switched to an infinitely more easy-to-carry-on and very lightweight clone instrument years ago. My back always thanks me for the choose :)
    This will be the first thing to do when possible. I have to share the beauty!!! Hope to share soon his voice too ;)

    Thanks for the welcome Moondog Wily! I will!
