    I was with my one year old today and she normally will bop around when I plink away on my upright, but today was different. She pointed at one of the basses on the wall and kept insisting she wanted to see it. So, I brought off the wall, put it on the floor, and let her poke away at it.

    She's far from learning, but between a Lakland 5502, fender p, and a homemade fretless, she's made a strong choice. She's clearly a talkbass kinda girl. Next thing I know she'll be wanting me to get darkglass stuff...

    I would sometimes put my 4001 down for my girls to explore when they were about that age. Both of then thought it was fun to jump up and down on the strings, so that did not last for long. Bass is fine. One of them played trumpet through high school. I guess it skipped a generation.

    Exactly. She loves music so far and definitely responds to a groove. Warms my heart and my drummer wife's heart.

    One day you will have to set her down and have "the talk"....flats or round wounds. Then the embarrassing questions about where tort comes from.
