    Today, when I picked my 9 year old son up from school, he jumped into the car VERY excited. He was yelling, "I know what I want to do when I grow up!"
    Me: "Gee, Jalen what's that?"
    Him: "I wanna play bass! We had a band come to our school today and play. The bass man, was the coolest guy on stage! When he wasn't playing, the music didn't sound as good!"

    He made his ol' pappy tear up and well with pride! :bawl: :cool:

    Yes! He didn't go down without a fight, and that damn band was expensive!

    The coolest part is, that you can lend him one of your basses, and you don't have to shell out for a new bass. :D

    Bite your tongue, man! Can you think of a better excuse to justify a new bass?

    "Hey, Babe--it's for the kid." :D

    D'OH! Of course!

    "But, hon, Jalen NEEDS a new Modulus Genesis. It's for the betterment of his bass playing."

    Good job on the child rearing Woodchuck! I hope to be so lucky with one of my two.
