I have always been in love with music. As a small girl I would get excited when my Uncle Art came to visit from Georgia because that meant music. My Uncle Carl would come over in the evenings and my mom would get her Gibson Songbird out and her and her brothers would sit around drink beer and play music. It was mostly country but I still would sit enchanted as they played. Now don’t think current country this was in the seventies so we’re talking old school country music like Kitty Wells, Loretta Lynn…I’m sure you get the picture.
It fascinated me to see people play without sheet music and just play riffs and make things up.
Then one day while looking through a record bin at the local Goodwill I found this record.
Jaco Pastorius was a bass player and so much more. He was the man who revolutionized how the bass was played–and how bassists are seen forever. I fell in love with those rich, low, tones and the way they made me feel.
Many years would pass before I would try to learn to play, but I am giving it my very best.
This is the color I would love to have a bass.
I was always a treble clef girl myself. But without a good bass, you have no music. Not really.

That is one handsome guitar.
that purple base is elegant.
my uncle Jack used to play piano..that fascinated me too…and he did not seem to read music- he just sat and played.

This is so very true. There's something about those low notes that call to me.
It's just amazing to watch someone play from the heart.
It is indeed. I have a five and a four string.
