playing bass

That's better

After possibly one of the most stressful weeks of my life, it was good to connect with the power of love and music.

I plugged my bass into the crappy amp in the living room, leaving the digital metronome and tuner behind. I handed boyziggy my Great Songs of the Sixties songbook, and asked him to accompany me on keyboard on Let's Get Together by the Youngbloods. What a relief, after a week of illness and anxiety I hadn't entirely forgotten how to play after all. Nor sing. I've always loved that song.

I hope that Ziggy and I will make beautiful music together for many years to come.
