Jammin' tunes in the Gulf of Mexico - South Padre Island style! (I'm on the end, wearing shorts)
Greetings Bottom Feeders!
Two things in music that shall forever draw the undulating masses towards it is bottom, and more bottom. C'mon, admit it! Even polka centers around the Tuba! Who are we, the bassist's, to deny ourselves, or be denied earth shaking low end? Let us be heard, and let the masses follow our rumble! We are the keepers of the bass clef. Without us, the grand staff is merely tablature! So play on, fellow bass afficionado's, and be proud to disrupt your neighborhoods!
Dare I say it? I was once a guitarist first. Forgive my transgression, I was young and in a dark place. Then I saw a ray of light, and it was, actually, rhythmes. This gave forth to many years of formal study in drums and percussion, through M.I. 's PIT course in LA, and on through college percussive theory. The natural merger to these studies was bass. I now am blessed with the ability and position to make my living as drummer and/or bassist. So, that's enough, as self adulation is dull and boring! So, back to the lessons, and let's learn more stuff!
