A little background first. About 15 years ago I came home from the worst gig I ever had, to long to explain, took everything, put it in the closet and quit. I would get a bit itchy over the years but never did anything. About 3 months ago I stated playing a bit at home. It was frustrating tying to get my hands back, I have some tendon issues. After about a month I tried a couple of local jams, man was that nerve racking, stage fright like you read about, but I continued going to them. About 2 weeks ago I sat in with the house band for the night at one of the jams.
The song below is one that was recorded at the gig. Itís recorded on a small Sony recorder I donít remember the model. Did a little editing in AVLinux using Ardour with a few plugins some EQing and Jamin. Donít really know what I am doing yet with the mixing and recording.
Do I have all my chops and groove back completely, not yet.
I am playing bass, the one in my Avatar, using a GK 700RB II with an Ampeg 4 10 cabinet. Just bought the amp and cabinet, all the equipment I used to use is to big for me to lug around now.
Man I never realized how much I missed it; ITíS A DISEASE and a costly one at that but I love it! I'm hooked again.
Give a listen, like I said, I have only been back at it for about 3 months.
Comments would be appreciated.
