    Howdy folks!

    Some of you might recall my post a while ago...

    Well, I've been spending time tracking, and it's turning out really well actually. It's sounding pretty darned good so far.

    But!..... I have a side effect of playing bass now...I find myself DANCING!
    I didn't notice at first, but I never do this playing guitar.....

    My wife came into the room and gave me a funny look... because here I am grooving away and dancing. Not crazy dancing, just groovin' dancing.

    Bizarre!

    Groove is that weird thing that can't be written on a piece of sheet music but makes the audience want to tap their foot and dance. You're groovin' for sure! :cool:

    I've only been playing for a few days--acually just moving my fingers through the scales and finger permatations (sp?) and I know how you feel--I bop while doing this!!!:bassist:

    I've always thought that you keep better rhythm if you make your whole body into a metronome. :) Playing bass has made me a better dancer:D If you can call it that:bag:

    can't stop those feet when i'm playing. If they stop the groove is gone. So I guess i can't play bass without my feet
     
  7. Soundmen hate me. "Bassplayer, could you PLEASE quit stomping? It's coming through the mics." :bassist: Can't stand still...:hyper:
