    I woke up this morning to realize that I managed to drunk order a bass last night after coming back from an open mic night at the local VFW that a friend from High School runs. Now, bear in mind that I have a hard enough time sounding good on a guitar. I am definitely NOT a bass player. But, knowing how the two instruments relate could actually help me with my theory stuff. But I didn't need to drop that kind of cash......*sigh*

    I can't post pix when I get it in because, alas, it is not a PRS. But I had to snitch myself off for doing to o_O

    EDIT: Oh, and I forgot, an amp to go with it :mad:

    In the words of my old boss:

    "Man, my plans fell through, I've got nothing going on all weekend. Guess I'll learn the bass..."

    (He was a keyboard player.)

    I know red wine and Reverb is a dangerous combination but it's how I built my pedalboard :)

    Drinking’s a great way to build a nice studio full of gear, but I’ve always relied on insanity.

    I did a thing too, but I wasn't drunk, and it was a SE245.

    Don't feel too bad about it. All bassists start off this way.

    No lie. ^^^^[

    Every bass player in town plays guitar better’n I do, because they all were guitar players before they got drunk and bought a bass.
    Now, all their calls are for bass only.

    I'd been thinking about buying a bass someday myself, but then realized my left foot couldn't keep time.
