The bassics

Time for a bit of personal reminiscing… today is an important anniversary for me.

This time last year, JKBC dragged a friend along to two music shops, asking the assistants ‘have you got a bass that would be comfortable for someone with my size hands to play?’ A run to the bank, to my grandmother’s and to home later, I was lugging a bass guitar and all the kit including amp the ten minutes or so back home.

A year later, I’m a proficient bassist with a fucked up amp (I played lots of chords then allowed a friend to run a synthesizer through it…), and I think playing has helped me. A lot. I’ve been much less prone to melancholy since I started playing, and more confident.

Ah well, navel-gazing over.
