Hey, I was just noticing today, does anyone out there have a consistant muse that always helps them think of musical ideas? Mine is a Crappy crappy crappy MIM Fender Jazz that's on perma-loan from a friend of mine. The action is terrible, there's relief for miles, the nut broke, so there's no sustain on an open E, the knobs crackle when plugged in, and theres cracks everywhere on it. However, for some reason, whenever I'm in a slump, I pick up that bass, and start jamming on it, and ideas just spring out of nowhere. I start playing better, more articulatedly, more origional ideas. I don't get it! Anyone else go though that sort of thing?
