    You're all probably familiar with the 23rd Psalm of David in the Old Testament. Well here is a psalm for bassists that you may or may not be familiar with.



    The Lord is my drummer, I shall not rush.
    He maketh me to lay out in tasteful places.
    He leadeth me beside cool meter changes.
    He restoreth my "one".

    Yeah man, though I read through the trickiest of charts, I will fear no train wrecks for You are with it.
    Your ride and Your snare, they comfort me
    You setteth up solos for me In the presence of mine guitarists.
    You annointeth my lines with drive.
    My groove overfloweth.

    Surely good feel and swing will follow me through all the tunes of each set.
    And I will dwell in the pocket the whole gig long.

    Amen
