My New Passion

5 Jun

As a classical trained cellist who played solo as well as 1st chair in
various orchestras and chamber music ensembles, I had always longed to
play in a band. I even had a pick-up for my cello so I could play
electric cello in various summerstock theater productions. I worked in
a music store with a bunch of rock musicians and really wanted to learn
how to play electric bass but didn’t have time to focus on two
instruments.

Well, years later I decided to take the plunge. I
was about to join a not-for-profit board and realized that I didn’t
want to spend what little free time I had asking people for money. I
had to listen to my inner musical voice and follow my dream. In
December I decided to take up the bass guitar. Ulimately, I’d like to
play in band (for fun, not work :>) as well as experiment with
digital music and video composition and production.

I found an inspirational teacher — Buddy Booker  and
bought my first bass guitar — a desert gold Ernie Ball Musicman
Sterling.
