Greetings from a lapsed bassist.

Recommended Posts

It's been years since I've picked up my bass but, with the current state of the world, I reckon now's as good a time as any to get back into it...

...just as soon as I can get it out of storage.

I'm not worried about having forgotten too much, because I never really progressed any further than a beginner. I could try and blame my stubby sausage-like fingers, but the truth it was me being too lazy put in much time practising, and frankly having a completely useless teacher.

So, hi everyone!

For a while I considered getting a short-scale, but seeing videos of unreasonably tiny people having no trouble playing long-scale basses slung low with virtually no stretching of their fingers just by moving their hands a bit more made me realise just how hollow that excuse was.
