I just spent some time jamming to early Chicago records on my Squier Affinity V Jazz bass, and I realized something.
I play because my band needs me to play bass sometimes, while our female lead singer is free to just sing.
I play because of a lot of other reasons, too.
But tonight I was playing for one reason, and on reason only:
Playing bass RULES!
Man, you can just jam out on one of these things, can't you? I was playing "I'm a Man," which is a pretty simple, but intensely groovy bass line, and I kept starting the song over because I didn't want it to end. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVLUFl6WO6E
