A disturbing story... I have two sons. One, 15 yrs old, plays a stratacaster very talented, the other 12 years old plays bass, also good, (he has a greater sense of rhythm than me, can move faster and is more natural. I am more practiced). Anyway, they both are in two bands. The first band did not play the kind of music that my younger bass playing son liked so he was not to commited. He got fired by the band leader after a while. (Band dissolved and reformed and renamed the next day). I asked my older son the other day who the new bass player was. His comment, " XXXX is playing the bass" I said, "I didn't know he played the bass." My son answered, "Any guitar player can play bass." AGHHH What have I been teaching this guy?
