    My bass arrived this week.

    I've been playing guitar for a while now and since I'm hopeless at it, I decided to try out the bass. :)
    The bass is beautifull yet wierd animal and it's not that straightforward how to play it properly (for me, at least)

    Here's a small tune I quickly set up. I play all instruments except the drums (which is a drum machine). I am terribly off-time in some places and some notes are wrong. My only excuse is that I was so excited about these new passion: I LOVE MY BASS!!!!!:

    (I'll get better at it, I promise)

    You talanted multi-instrumentalist dog! Great job Marin! You did a better job than I would have done!

    Just keep practicing with the drum machine and you'll get it!!

    Congrats on the new passion.

    You're awfully kind Scott. Thanks.

    Being a bassist has it's privildges: easier to find a band, easier to leave a band, less strings to play, the gear is cheaper, you don't need 6 basses (maybe 2 at the most), easier to groove, strings are changed less often, no picks required, no tube amps required, you can get away with playing a few notes...

    Why make life more complicated than what it really is?:)

    I've been practising my Marcus Miller chops, so I'll post something soon.
