Am I the only one...

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Geezer Brown, Dec 27, 2012.

  1. ..who can't stop thinking about bass? I lay awake every night, thinking about basses, bass amps, bass strings, playing bass, bass frets, what different basses feel like, what different basses smell like, etc.

  4. Well, when I'm not practicing, I think about that stuff, except the smell. Never gave much thought to the smelling of the bass.

    Some outside interests sound in order - I recommend women, motorcycles, booze, and guns - works for me...

  7. I tried outside interests, my bass just looked at me and said "Get real, you don't need all that stuff.":)
    Since I am married, we obviously disagreed about women.

    To the OP, I feel you on this. It's a pretty intense obsession when I'm into something, and playing bass is no different. Even the smell of the bass when you first open the case. Better than a fine wine. But that's as far as ill go.

    Since getting my bass, I literally have to force myself to pick up and play my guitars...Days and days go by.All I want to play now is the bass.

    It's become part of my DNA.

    Man, I LOVE the smell of my bass. I always think of it, and until now I thought I was the only one.
