Two Bass Git
Some friends have lent me a double bass to play with, as they don't use it during the summer. I'm slowly getting the hang of it.
It is a very different beast to the wee electric bass I own. No frets for a start, and it's damn large.
It's so much fun to play, though. The Star Wars Imperial March sounds so right on the upright. In a wrong sort of way. I'm working my way through some Jazz Walking lessons on it at the moment.
Soon I'll be a Three Bass Git, as I managed to get a cheap acoustic bass on a TradeMe action. It was a great way to break my online auction virginity. Now I'm hooked ... curse you, whoever you are that outbid me on the H.P. Lovecraft Cthulhu book.
