playing bass is
hard! errr, fun!
So, I had my first bass lesson last night and the first thing Cliff (my teacher) did was take away my pick.
Then I got quizzed on what theory I remembered (I knew my dotted quarter notes, sharps, flats, etc. eighth rests threw me) went over what notes are in various chords and tried miserably to "play a B, now where else can you play it?, now where else?, now where else?" I have 4 songs (Little Wing, Kids are Alright and a couple others that you'd laugh at) for homework and have to work on my major scale fingering and excercise/stretch my left hand while getting my fingers walking on my right.
Oh and fifths. Sounds intimidating, actually easy.
Tonight I'm going to try and get through a whole vibemerchant practice without the pick, wish me luck.

I love this.
Sounds like fun!
Luck, Krix! You don't need it; you are soooo gonna ROCK!!!
Good luck, Krixy. I hope you have a full tin of bandaids handy. It'll take a while to develop the callouses (sp?).
I love hearing about all the bass-playin' fun you're having, krix! Keep it up! You are great!
You sure he didn't mean a fifth of Jack? ;)
Rudiments and Theory - oh the good 'ol days...
I hated practicing scales, but they're a necessary evil...
kitty hat on a dogboy...heh heh...
yeah, the bass is cool, but the kitty hat is cooler..... rock on, chick!
Very Cool... Someday I'l have to set down my violin and try the bass-- It's one guitar I'd prolly be able to learn with my violin habits b-c of the four strings and usually not plentiful chords:)
Have fun in practice!
*looking up from cello* Wanna jam? Of course, I'll have to put this bow down...
Seriously, it'll drive you a bit nuts at first, but the sweet low tones will keep you at it. :o)
go krix! There's just no end to your creative talents... and we love you for it!
