Sorry I haven’t been around for a few weeks:
A couple weeks ago, I started a home project that became both time consuming, and distracting. Additionally, I was put in charge of an event at my American Legion post, which was equally time consuming and distracting. I have barely touched or even looked at poor Rosie (my bass) in a couple of weeks. Thankfully, both projects have come to a conclusion.
This morning, after a night of very restful and peaceful sleep, I was awoken by the sound of music coming from somewhere in my house. I laid in bed for a moment as my brain began to come to life, and identified the music as the song, I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry.
I stumbled out of bed, slid into my slippers, threw on my robe, and padded through the house trying to locate the source of the music. I followed the sound into the den, and was shocked at what I discovered.
My laptop was open to lesson 1 of Module 10 in the B2B course, with the backing track to I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry playing. The sheet music to the song was on my music stand. The amp was turned on, and a steaming cup of hot bass juice reposed on the table. And there was Rosie, gazing at me with those sad eyes of which only a bass guitar is capable. Her eyes pierced my soul as she stared at me while playing the bass line to I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry.
Message received Rosie!
Anyway, I’m glad to be done with my projects, and back to my daily practicing and learning the bass.
