In the past three months or so, I have doubled my workout time on DB, focusing especially on arco tone and intonation. (especially arco tone and intonation in Rabbath's 4th position) I have finally reached the point where the DB is starting to feel very natural. I rarely feel as if I am fighting to get comfortable. So, it's been years since I have seriously practiced the slab anyway, but up until recently, I have always been able to get a good tone out of it and pretty much knock off any riff that was in my mind or anyone else's. But this morning, I honestly felt uncomfortable playing it. I felt like I was molesting the poor thing. I haven't felt that way in a decade or more. I don't want to sound immodest, but I have a decent reputation as a well-accomplished slabbist. It's somewhat in my interest to preserve that. Not to mention there are plenty who expect me to play well when I show up to work with them. There's no doubt where my heart is, but I gotta find balance here. My niche is being able to double well. But, the better I get on DB and the more I understand about it, the less I feel right on the electric bass. Who out there keeps both oars in the water? If so, how do you keep your chops up on both instruments? I have a marriage, three kids and another career to look after as well? I know know our own Durryl finally hung up the slab. Is it my destiny?
