I play electric bass. I enjoy it very very much. I love jazz. I like music. I like bass. I've been very happy with it for as long as I've played it. I've done many wonderful things in my life. I've seen the sunrise and set against the Mississippi River. I've seen the Sistine Chapel and the Grand Canal of Venice. I've known the love of a woman like no other I will ever know. I've climbed Half Dome at Yosemite in the dead of winter.... THE SINGLE GREATEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE WAS PLAYING AN UPRIGHT BASS!!! I mean this as seriously as I can say it. Two weeks ago I got to really sit down and play a double bass for an extended period of time. My left hand cramped and curled underneath itself from the pain, I created new blisters under my other blisters and callouses. The intonation was horrible and my speed and dexterity nothing like on electric. And.... it was the greatest single experience of my life My new life goal is the purchase and practicing of the upright bass. I now know why I was put onto this Earth!!! Thank you.
