Never owned one but I have played one.

It's not as hard as you'd think - it's certainly a hell of a lot easier to play than unfretted string instruments like violin.

the important thing is not to fret yourself, and always carry a sockeye just in case

I've got to go to court and plead with the judge about this stupid Failure To Appear Misdemeanor in 3 hours.
Now I think I know how it feels to go onstage....

No bass guitar of any kind for me until next year, possibly. Just got a Yamaha acoustic and that's used up what little discretionary money I had accumulated.

If our investors ever come through I'll be able to afford a bass and an electronic drum set... but I won't have time to play them. Such is life.

I went to the music store and they had this cello on sale so cheap I almost couldn't walk away. But I am really cramped in my music room, storage is an issue, even though the salesman insisted "There's always room for cello"


That made me spill my coffee! :-o :hihi: :P :lol:

A 7.3 magnitude earthquake just rolled by:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20638696

(albeit it was only about 6 when it hit us in Sendai).

Quite exciting actually - I was outside and the whole ground started to roll like on a fairground ride.
Buildings were shaking too and the supermarket was in a state of flux.

It lasted about 1 minute - enough to scare me slightly but not enough to dash to the nearest park.

Nobody is sure (AFAIK) if these are aftershocks of the magnitude 9 earthquake from last March or if it's something else coming.

Anyway, quite thrilling.

I hope you guys are ok!

I was in the SF quake of 89. It was like surfing on concrete while driving.

Cheers mate - yeah everything here's okay thanks, mainly due to how Japan builds itself around preparing for such things.

Your description of surfing on concrete is very apt.
And the 1989 SF earthquake was a nasty one.
