I haven't played for very long time. Well, I play bass on wireless mics from Musicians Friend more than I play a real life bass guitar. But whenever I pick it up and strum the strings, it always feels good. I have a Fender Custom Shop Bass. It was a gift from my father for my 16th birthday! Most people prefer electric guitars over basses, but I am sure that if you let the guitar play alone without the bass, the music won’t be as good.
I think the only problem I have with playing bass is that my hand can’t reach very well. But I have not played for very long, so I guess my hand should be just used to it again.
I know if someone would see me doing this, the first thing that will come to his or her mind is “Wow, this girl is weird” or “Geez… This girl has some mental issues”. Well, for me the best therapy in the world is this, this makes me feel good whenever I feel down and I feel hopeless – it helps me relax my mind and body as well.
Sometimes I feel like it’s the end of everything and end of the world, but with music and my Best best http://www.guitarcenter.com/Sousaphones.gc everything turns better when dancing. It’s a very superb exercise too! It’s my favorite way to release tension and anxiety. But of course, it needs complete privacy because, c’mon, it's embarrassing!
