So Begins My Musical Re-Education...

After years of playing the clarinet and the contra-bass clarinet, it's time to shake things up.

I've always wanted to learn how to play the bass guitar. 

For B-day #28, I'm starting now, and the goal is to "not suck" by B-day #29.

I'll let you know how it goes, and if any of you have advice, links, suggestions please send them my way!


  1. It's a great thing you're doing - I think it's so important to challenge one's mind continually, throughout life.

    My only advice - work with a teacher you like, and practise every day! Have fun!


  2. Thanks for that Mary.
    I'm starting on just the basics today. It only took me 30 minutes to tune the damn thing LOL.
    Right now I'm doing some super basic finger exercises just to start walking the strings.

    After a week or so of just that, I think I'll be ready to track down a teacher. I'm TOO embarrassed right now LOL.

    Silly N00B!
