This is my niece's bass guitar (she was kind enough to let me borrow it). I've always played the bass. Air Bass, that is. I can "play" all kinds of songs. Well, last night, I finally plugged it in, put the headset on (my neighbors don't know what they're missing) and rocked out. I LOVE the fact that no one can hear it but me!!! At some point, I might actually take a lesson. For now? I'll just enjoy my lack of expertise and enjoy the beat through plucking, slapping, popping, tapping, and thumping. ROCK ON PEOPLE.
