It's Gonna Get Better, part two - the funcrunch files
Mar. 9th, 2010 02:03 am It's Gonna Get Better, part two
After I typed up the previous entry I went back to listening and playing along to Genesis' It's Gonna Get Better. I got into a good groove on the main bass riff, and just closed my eyes and let Tony Banks' hypnotic keyboard parts wash over me while I played.
In deference to the neighbors as it was past 1:30 a.m., I played with my headphones on. As the song ended I let the bass ring out on the last note, D. I played it in three different places on the instrument, fingered and open strings, then stopped and heard the beautiful tone of the instrument more clearly than ever before.
