If you don't know , I'm in middle school and i'm a only child. so basically : I'm 11 , Which means i'm a millennial , ew. And I'm a only child , so... *googles about only children* i'm spoiled. BUT ANYWAY!!!1!!111112!!!2489. The sad fate of Floyd. My elementary days were boring and dum , until strings. strings meant that i could play another instrument that was considered professional. I saw this HUGE double bass , it was weird because ive only played my bass guitar , and those at G.C but this was totally different ,a huge bass with no pickups , no plug and- oh no. it was fretless. i friiiiicked out cause it was fretless i had no experience using a fretless. now , playing a double bass , i just hit the strings using the bow cause les claypool did it. and this girl playing bass was *no offense* , very edgy. she named her bass "Brendon Urie" , no lie , seriously she named after her crush. so me , i got my double bass , and named it Floyd , because...pink...floyd...yeah. so i named it floyd , and my bass was in her eyes a worthless , cheap , and crappy piece of furniture. in my eyes , it was a mammoth sized instrument. so we played and she used a bow and played public domain songs. while i played a bunch of rock basslines , and played "Grim Grinning Ghost" cause i thought i sounded cool. but i grew with this bass , i was stuck to this bass. so i started crying of happiness when i heard my music teacher said: "You can bring your instrument home so you can practice" i practiced and practiced , and when the show came , it was *ahem* uhh... it was pruddy bad. i did stage banter with my bass , i jumped up and down , it was a di(z)saster. luckily , i still kept my bass. as soon as may came along , me and floyd were seperated , it was sad , so sad. but yet it was better than expected.
