I have come to the understanding that some people don’t seem to grasp the fact that this blog isn’t owned by a professional bassplayer.
It is true that I didn’t own a bass up to a year ago. This is mainly due to the fact that I’ve always borrowed basses in order to practise, and I honestly didn’t bother with buying one until I found myself incapable of borrowing one. Of course the first bass that I built isn’t entirely made from scratch, and I honestly don’t gave a damn.
I started this blog not because I’m so full of knowledge that it needed to be spread out over the internet, but because I actually knew very little about the instrument that I love. I’ve only been familiar with my father’s Fender Precision and a few other brands. After a surgeory on my hand I decided to start this blog about a year ago and got lucky with this URL. I couldn’t (and still have a lot of difficulty) playing because of my injured hand. This blog formed a gateway for me to stay involved in the world of bassguitars without actually playing and to find people that are like minded. We are after all an underappreciated member of the band.
First and formost, I started this blog for myself. This is the place where I dumped all of the things that I heard or found out about through the internet. Having this blog taught me a lot about bassguitars, its players (as some say, you don’t really know a band until you know the bass player’s name) and the instrument as a whole. It became the reason why I want to take it to a professional level. Luthier schools do exist. Basically it is like following a very long extended course about all the ins and outs of a bass (and guitars as well) whether it be acoustic or electric. If you pay tuition for it, that makes it a school. Can’t really argue on that.
For those who asked about recordings, I’m sorry but I do not have any. This summer I’m returning to the United States where my fiancè and I will do some colaborative work and hopefully have some material to post online. I do not have any evidence regarding whether I am a good bass player or not, though I honestly think that that is of any importance to begin with. As I said before, I’ve had surgeory on my hand that has unfortunately resulted into permanent scar tissue causing a lot of pain when I stretch it. I will never be as good as Flea, but that isn’t going to stop me from persuing my dream.
Most of the pictures I post on here are directly taken from the internet. If you recognize anything as yours that you would like to acknowledge, I am more than happy to do so. It is your instrument after all. If for whatever reason you prefer not to have that said picture on here, that is fine as well. Just send me a personal message and we’ll discuss it.
I hope that cleared up the issue a bit. As always, I’m available for questions, comments and submissions.
