But what do I do for an encore?
While waiting for my connecting bus this morning, I found myself groovin' along to the bassline of one of my favourite songs... I had to suppress my natural urge to play "air bass" in order to avoid embarassment! I say "natural urge" because I've always found myself strumming along to the bassline of my favourite songs (unless there's a superior guitar or synthesizer riff), which has prompted a number of friends to tell me I'm a natural bass player.
(Despite my never having learned to play)
While reliving these happy memories, I thought to myself, "CJ, why don't you write a new series showcasing your favourite bass lines?"
A fine idea! Please join me over the next twelve days as I do just that. My musical tastes are varied, to say the least, so there may be a few surprises on the list!
