As I sit here and type, my basses have been packed away into a moving pod for about six hours and I can FEEL my finges getting rusty.
I may have mentioned before that I’m moving house. I am in the process of shutting down my house in the People’s Glorious Republic of Ontariostan, and everything is packed away already. Moving out next monday. Our new house in Saudi Oilberta isn’t going to be ready till mid-Jan. Anyhoo, my basses are packed away, my new acquisition (Peavey Foundation) is being sent to my office in Oilberta.
The earliest I will pick up a bass is next week when we go to Poland to stay wih the in-laws, and I will get to futz with Stingummathing again. Other than this forum, what other bass things do I do?
Yeah, work stuff out… I always take a notebook with me when bass-less and write out things (scales, intervals, …). Make little fretboard diagram and annotate triads etc - see how symmetric it all is and where the shapes are; or, how a triad can be mapped in different ways…
Plus, after a little break, you come back to your instrument(s) fresh and re-motivated
