I had an interesting experience last night. I have 2 sons, 14 and 12. They very rarely get to see me play. When I practice with my band, lets just say its always 4:20, so the dont get to see us practice. They are too young to see us perform in bars. And when I practice at home, they are usually out playing, doing home work, or doing something in their room. When I have asked them in the past if they would be interested in playing an instrument, one would say maybe guitar, the other guitar or drums. Last night we were all in the living room, I have a couple areas of some songs I needed to work on, so I took out my bass and worked on them. I then just started doing some improv. When I looked up both of my sons were just staring at the bass as I played. They were completely captivated. Afterwords both said it was one the coolest things they saw and both now want to get a bass for Christmas! I was so proud! Now the delima, I would prefer if they each got a different instrument so they could play in bands together when they get older. I guess I have to try and convince one of them that other instruments are just as cool. (though I dont actually believe that ) Just thought I would share a proud family moment.
