In the pub the other night my good lady wife announced that she fancied learning the bass guitar. I've always found female bass players slightly erotic so I have done the gentlemanly thing and decided to support her in this noble ambition. Jamie in Shifnal Music has done me yet another good deal, this time on a Ibanez GSR200 Bass, an ideal beginners instrument, so we are all set up and ready to go.
Obviously that now means there is a bass guitar sitting on a stand, right next to my Strat, and it was only a matter of time before I picked it up and started messing about with it. Once the novelty of playing the bass riff from "The Chain" wore off (about 2 mins) I sat down and worked out a bass line for a song I'm writing at the moment. Currently it is imaginatively titled "E6" and will feature on our next release, hopefully with a better title. I may stick a sneak preview on here sometime.
