Fat Mullet Slim or the Saltwater Rednecks fame phoned up and asked if I could collect an electric Double Bass for him that he had just won on eBay? As an honorary Saltwater Redneck, (which I think actually means Roadie) of course I said yes and in carrying out this task I learned two new and valuable facts. One Double Basses are heavier than they look and Two Double Basses are a Bugger to fit in the car.
When I got it back to Ukulele Corner, where it will visit until I see him next, I remembered that I'm not very good on the double bass. I never know where to put my figures and I can't do any of that funky syncopated slapping. I also remembered that my little Fender amp is very frightened of Basses - and with good reason Still for all of my inability it is pretty and interesting and impressive and welcome at Ukulele Corner any time
