Upright “Take 1”

First and foremost, thanks to my brothers from another for their support and encouragement. Jeff Hoffman, Cyrus Pace, Ben Mars, and especially a big huge thanks to Blyss. If there is one man that would knock the procrastination out of ya..its that guy!

So today, i decided to stop reading and finally pick up the Upright and play it. I dont have the tone i would like, but im working on it. Technique is EVERYTHING. I finally see that there is NO SHORTCUTS. With electric bass…piece of cake(atleast i thought it was). Upright…its like starting over, not knowing whats going on. But thats the joy of it..starting from the bottom and working your way to the top. I had thought over a million times to take it back to the music store and getting my money back. What kinda musician i would be if i had done that? Coward! Great works, come great respect. I have a new found respect for Upright bassist across the globe!

Check out the vid below, lots of mistakes. Charge it to my mind, not my heart…i’ll post more soon
