I hereby declare / that as of this moment
this moment --
I am officially no longer a BASSPLAYER (acoustic - electric or flying) and with sturdy mind and obedient spirit willingly relinquish all rights and privileges formerly granted.
end official declaration
I can still play bass and play it quite well, I just don’t want to.
I hope to meet you back here in a year (maybe sooner), when I will announce with utmost confidence and supreme credibility that I am now a piano player
Bass plays only one note at a time - granted, it is the most important note giving the chord being played its name, but it still is only ONE note and ONE is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.
Piano can play ALL the notes ALL the time with none of them being that important. So anti-important are they that you can stop playing altogether and no-one cares. Now that’s the party I want to be invited to, even if my mother told me not to go.
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
