A lazy fallen bass player becomes a bass collector...?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bread903, May 17, 2011.

  1. I have to confess.

    Fellow bass players, I am lazy.

    I am lazy as hell.

    I like videogames too, but I'm so lazy

    I don't even play the games I like for straight 2 hours.

    I can also say that I get bored easily,

    but I didn't get bored of playing bass.

    I don't play a lot. I don't practice a lot.

    I get my hands on my basses occasionally these days.

    I once hoped to become a professional band member,

    but as the plans didn't go on well,

    my passion to make a living out of music became cold.

    But still, I love bass. I love a bass guitar.

    The fact that I couldn't make a living out of

    doing music by itself doesn't mean that I starved.

    I worked at the jobs I don't love, and I used most of it

    to what I love: Instruments and videogames.

    And now a dillema.

    As we could all agree, good music doesn't come out

    from an expensive instrument.

    Owning a Fodera doesn't mean that it'd make you

    play like Anthony Jackson.

    At the same time, it's no evil to buy an expensive stuff

    if you can afford it.

    I was able afford them, so I bought many basses.

    I sometimes get bored of some of my collection

    then I sell them. But most of the purchases stay.

    This is how my biggest hobby(for now) is going on....

    I just wanted to confess, in my opinion, my being fool,

    and being unable to stick with few basses I love

    and practice a lot..

    I feel thrilled when I play every each one of my basses,

    but I really don't like my greed.

    I feel like crying!

    Nice poem. I can identify, but I don't feel bad about it.
  3. holy smokes.

    this is like some kind of tragic poem...take it easy kid, no ones judging!
  4. Is it something obvious to buy in stuff

    as many as possible if you love it?

    Like the oil kings in Saudi Arabia buy

    cars like 10 Jaguars and 11 Ferraris!?

    Have I had too much coffee!?:eek:

    Yeah, I pretty much suck at bass, but I have some nice ones. I like having them around. They look good on my walls :D. I still play professionally, but I'll never be a "monster" player by any means.

    Reading that gave me eye cancer.

    But if I look at it as some sort of avant-garde poem, it's alright.

    No reason to feel bad -- unless you're putting yourself deeply into debt: THAT would be a reason to [DEL]cry[/DEL] get professional help.

    You are from Korea.

    This is not Haiku form.

    You have disappointed us all.

    I have quite a few lined up too. I'm a poor player. My coworkers drive BMWs, I take public transport home...when I get up the stairs in my apartment I see the evening sunlight warming the fender headstocks...so I pick one up and try to improve that little bit. Before long, I'll be stone dead, and hopefully someone else will enjoy them.

    Don't fret it!

    Your playing has stopped,

    Your collection gathers dust.

    Beats a meth habit.

    Time for some tuff love.
    Poor you, video games, and the ability to buy any bass you want.
    No joy in your life?
    Being lazy is you biggest problem?:bawl:
    Move the mic, closer to your butt, because your talking out your ass.
    Look at all the suffering, and hardship that people are having around the world now.
    Wake up and find some real joy, connect to your real self.
    P. S. Blow up the video games.
