I Have An Acoustic Bass Guitar In My Office That Generates Lots Of Conversations. I own an insurance agency in a small town and I keep the bass against the wall behind my desk and I play it whenever I have a few minutes or want to work on tunes. Many people have been in my office and commented when they see the bass. Sometimes, they are just people asking about me playing or if I am in a band. Occasionally, the conversations have gotten them to come and see my band and even gotten gigs booked for my band with people who run clubs. Other times, I will find out either the person or somebody they know is also a musician. It happened again today. A guy just walked into my office unannounced and introduced himself as a new marketing representative for a regional restoration business. When he saw the bass, he told me that he is a drummer. We ended up having a nice, long conversation about our bands, music we like, and I showed him some videos of bands that he never heard about before and he now liked them. I have developed business relationships for my insurance agency because of music and vice versa and having that bass out in the open at my office has proven to be a great thing.
