Here is a little "remember when" for you guys I just have to share..... First, I'm a noob. I played some guitar years ago on my own just for fun, but they have been collecting dust in the closet ever since the kids came....Now fully in my midlife crisis I bought a bass (SR500L - 2 months ago). I've since been playing along to songs and following a good bass book w/CD until I answered a Craigslist ad from an older beginner drummer, tired of taking lessons, looking to jam with an older beginner bass & guitar player. Well, yesterday was it. We had access to a band space downtown L.A. No guitar player, just me and the drummer kind of fumbling around for the first hour playing some blues bars patterns out of my book/CD when the light came on for both of us. We turned off the music and just played -- hitting a groove and sounded alright. Simple stuff, but we both played off each other, hit the right timings, sped things up, slowed things down and we both kept up with it -- it was an amazing feeling. I'm hooked!
