I still play bass

20060113125

I’ve been into playing bass again lately – lately being the past ten days or so. The lack of playing in a band and having a bigger reason to play than just sitting in a room playing through headphones seems to be my biggest discouragement as a musician leading to those periods of not playing at all for months. It’s fun to noodle around aimlessly, but having a band doing something constructive definitely makes it more interesting.

There are a number of sites for designers to collaborate on work. One designer does something, then the other adds to it/redirects it, and so on for a series until it reaches its peak of color, flourish, simplicity, shape or whatever other combination of each designers style. Are there such sites for musicians, more specifically, rockish musicians? I haven’t even bothered digging yet, but probably will. Project files could be swapped letting each musician focus on their individual talents. A virtual band of sorts that’s not generated by algorithms pumped through a processor.

On other bass related business, a couple years ago I wanted a new bass but was convinced there wasn’t a perfect match currently in production. Billings’ work on designing a custom guitar lead me to create a bass robbing parts and styles from various models and manufacturers. I still dig it.

    that is a nice bass creation. ’51 p-bass/mike dirnt body and pickguard shape, with today’s standard, non-tele looking headstock. the whole thing color-wise looks exactly like a certain Burns Marquee that’s currently disassembled waiting to be rewired. i like it. call up the fender custom shop!

    We did that one thing with the drums and the bass awhile ago… we should do that again.
