So I've started taking bass lessons at the local guitar shop. I really need them because I'm planning on playing for my school's choir this coming fall. After my bass lessons I went to my show choir back up band practice. Wow, talk about a wake up call. All these kids were improvising a ton of things and playing what they heard on cd perfectly. I pretty much stood in the corner the whole time. Basically I need a ton of practice. Hopefully I can get enough in before the beginning of the school year. Wish me luck!
