I've been inspired by @She-Ra to be better about putting in time. The issue is that I don't have She-Ra's planning skills or discipline at all. (I swear, I've probably got adult attention deficit disorder, or something.) The other issue is that - although I want to be "better", I currently don't really have concrete goals as a bassist. Sure, there are things I want to be better at (soloing, expressing myself on the instrument), and there are things I want to do (tap like a beast, use chords and interesting voicings as part of my lines) but in my general day-to-day as a bass player in the groups I perform with, it's largely unnecessary. I'm good enough, but I don't want to just be good enough. But I don't have a plan to get me there. As such - this thread is going to be a tiny little log for the things I do every day that further my general musicianship. This may include things outside of playing, such as musical research or theory study (or hell, even thinking about my instrument - I have a thread I created about six-string bass fretboard theory). It may also include learning new pieces, or thinking about music and specific instrumentation. It'll also include things like, hey, I set up my space and bought a music stand. Honestly, it might get a little rambly and heady in here. However, when I do put in practice time, I'll log it here. I'm mainly doing this for me, but I'm hoping that a semi-public log will help to inspire me (I doubt it'll do anything for my utter lack of discipline) and at least contribute to me having non-zero days. A lot of my music is shut down right now (I generally rehearse with one band twice during the week, attend a jam every other Tuesday, and have a Saturday morning practice with the other band, and I'm hoping to start playing jazz and Brazilian ensemble music with another group during the week - Friday and weekend nights are usually gig nights when I have them) and I'm finding that it's easy to just pick up the instrument and noodle a bit before putting it down to binge-watch something pointless. So - onward.
