  1. I now sling my bass closer to my chest than my hips. Now suddenly I'm quite amazed at some of what I can play. Provided, I haven't tried anything that I wouldn't have when my bass was hanging by my hips, but it's a lot easier to play a lot of licks now than it was before.
    I like. :D
     
  2. Take it to the next level--play sitting down!

    Next semester I'm gonna try to play some jazz gigs sitting, a la Anthony Jackson. I still use a strap, though.

    If you were serious about jazz you'd lay flat on your back.
     
  4. that's sissy stuff. real jazzers hang upside down by their feet.
     
  5. That's still mighty pussy. Real jazzers hang suspended by their genitalia while having lye poured on their armpits.
     
  6. Uuuhhh... I don't think that's called jazz.

    It's called S&M.
     
  7. for the longest time i would hate standing up to play, at any time! i would think to myself "why do i need to sit down" then i realized and now i got my nifty piece alot higher and can actually play a tune or two!:D :p
