    My nephew gave me this neat little weather station for Christmas, with two inside stations and one outside. So I have been watching the humidity over the last 5 moths. In the last few weeks, as Spring has sprung here in NYC, I watched the typical relative humidity go from 20-25% up to 50-60%. Almost in lockstep, I could feel a difference in my bass necks, Fender, MusicMan, Carvin (esp the neck throughs), all of them you could feel the change due to the humidity.

    So for some weird reason, these lyrics popped into my head, based on Bob Dylan's The Times They are a Changin.

    Come gather round bassists
    and hear the new sound
    The ones that you love,
    in white, black and brown
    The seasons have changed
    and you need not frown
    And realize soon that the buzz will be gone
    Even though it’s been dry all winter
    Then you better get out that
    truss rod wrench and those tools
    For the Bass necks they are a-changin…
