I think I mentioned before that I’d been talked being the bass player in a band with a couple friends. Had I ever played a bass when I agreed to this? No. But I used to play the guitar, and since a bass has 4 strings, and a guitar has 6, I figured I’d be 3/2 better at the bass. Of course, I used to play the guitar, and 3/2 of not good isn’t impressive.

Anyway, the band got together for the first time today. What did I learn? Sucking doesn’t take the fun out of playing music (as long as your the one playing). Hopefully things will improve when I’ve got more than a couple weeks practice under my belt. For now, I’m content amusing myself and annoying the roommate. What’s that, you don’t want to hear the MacGyver theme again? Too bad!
