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.

This is good.
