    23rd Psalm For Bass Players:

    The Lord is my drummer, I shall not rush,
    ... He maketh me to lay out in tasteful places,
    He leadeth me beside cool meter changes,
    He restoreth my "one."
    Yeah, man, though I walk through the trickiest of Sammy Nestico charts,
    I will fear no train wrecks,
    For You are with it.

    Your ride and Your snare they comfort me,
    You setteth up a solo for me
    In the presence of mine guitarists,
    You annointeth my lines with drive,
    My groove overfloweth.

    Surely good feel and swing will follow me
    through all the tunes of each set,
    And I will dwell in the pocket the whole gig long.

    I always thought that...until I played with one of those guys with 4-limb independence & 2 brains....1/2 the kit in odd time, the kick in & out of the backbeat, the Ride pinging out 1/4 notes, etc. Where is/was "1"?!?!
    Lesson Learned: I am responsible for keeping myself in-place.

    Nice Psalm, though.

    BROTHER: "And Saint Atila raised the bass guitar up on high, saying, 'Oh, Lord, bless this thy bass guitar that with it thou mayest play thy bass notes to perfection, in thy mercy.' And the Lord did grin, and bassists did feast upon the Alembics, and Rickenbackers, and Laklands, and Rob Allens, and Fenders, and Gibsons, and Spectors, and Ritters, and --"

    MAYNARD: Skip a bit, Brother.

    BROTHER: "And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou tune thy Holy bass. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out! Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy bass notes towards thou audience, who being Holy in my sight, shall love it.'"

    MAYNARD: Amen.
