Hi all second try at grammar so here goes. Ok about 4 months ago when I started to play the bass. I started to look for a better bass about the fifth lesson in or so. So I asked my teacher if I should buy a new bass, or a better amp? And he replied a better bass Derek. Your bass seems to be a bit weak in my book. Because I normal tell all my students to turn they're basses down, But I seem to be telling you to turn yours UP but for now your bass is good for learning. The fifth or sixth lesson in I asked "lets name him Dick". Hello Dick May I play this Bass "I then point to the Cort Artisan b4 bass'. He said sure let me get you set up on our amp here in a minut. So he sets me up and hand me the bass. I then started to play just a basic scale at the time because that's all I knew at the time. Any ways I said I love this bass I want it, Dick said yes I do to. I then asked Dick if I could possible make payments. He said see me after the 15 days and w'ell talk. I said ok then grabbed my bass and left the store. 15 days passes and I did not metion the deal to him for some reson at all, I am not sure why. I really wanted that bass bad. So basicually 3 months pass and I called the store 3 days before the new years day, and asked Dick if I could buy the bass for $600 out the door. He then says Hang on a minut Derek let me check my book. He then comes back and says Well "sigh" I can let it go for $593 out the door, then I said great can you put a sold sticker on my new baby?. He then said he could do me one better. He then tells "lets call him Tom" Tom go grab the cort of the self "no not that one the one Derek wants its sold" Tom then says cool and grabs the bass the I want, and put its in the recording studio. "Oh also like I said when I first wanted it the store owner was hem hawing around the price and didnt want to do it."
