I know that I've been out of it, that is, blogging wise and perhaps in other ways, but I've found some new inspiration:
First of all, I just had a nice break during this 40-city tour. I relaxed, attended church, worked on my house, worked in the garden, and bought and played a berimbau.
Second, my wife is finishing up most of the rest of the tour with me, which obviously, she is breath of fresh air out here.
Lastly, I've been working on putting together some new ideas for my blog; namely, with the help of my good friend Meshach, I plan to put up some videos of bass lessons (both electric and acoustic) and MPC 2000 lessons. It will be a great exercise for me, and hopefully, it will be helpful to others. I get asked a lot of questions about bass playing on the road and in emails. So, maybe this will help. It will cover a lot of stuff: basics, scales, modes, styles, etc.
Let's see how it goes . . .
