In an ongoing effort to embarrass myself...

One of my old bands (Hippie Go Lucky) got conned into doing a gig this weekend. A private party. Small gathering.

We've rehearsed three times in the last few months, which isn't much considering we haven't played in two or three years, and I haven't touched my bass more than a handful of times since then. I've pretty much hung it up. My hands cramp up after just a few songs and it's painful to play. And I can't remember how half the songs go.

But, okay, I'll do the gig this weekend. We'll see how it goes...

Here's a clip of the last time we played, years and years ago. You can see why we're not famous.

I don't like these private gigs. That means I can't go.

one is never to old to rock...just do some stretches and warm up your hands in hot water before the show and you'll be just fine...

I liked your bass leg keeping time, it sounded good! I was worried about the guy in the ballcap in the foreground though. His hands were all over himself.

I just started playing again, and have the exact same problems. Also, the problem that I always sucked at bass.

Carry on, my wayward son.
