I doubt I'll ever be a Victor Wooten.  :(

or Geddy Lee.

Finished watching the Netflix documentary about Rush, hence the Lee reference. What a bass player and some spectacular progressive hard rock.

Thanks very much Bala. It's a cracker of a song. I love the line 'the only thing that runs is memories through my mind'

Thankyou Darrell, it was fun and scary, but fun more than anything. I didn't want to let Skotty down by mucking up.

Good to see you here, does this mean you are improving?

It’s slow progress Maggie but things are getting better. I’m now about a week away from being completely off Pharma medication but withdrawal is hard. I’m off painkillers and have been for a couple of months now because they were making me very ill. It’s a strange feeling to have how I feel now, still in quite a bit of pain but more me - it’s like coming out of a fog! I’m only using natural things to help with it now, CBD products being the main one (it’s a pity THC is illegal here in the uk, just 3-5% would make a huge difference!). But valerian, lavender and chamomile plus 5-HTP make the difference. I’m hoping to be somewhere near to normal as I’m going to get by September sometime. So hopefully I can get back in the saddle properly!

Maggie, this is just super.  Reminds me of a butterfly breaking loose and taking flight.  Your expressions say it all.  Saw you sing along too.  You should have had a mic. Really enjoyed this performance.

I think you stole the show. You're mesmerizing. The bass could've been louder, but you sounded great!

Yep THC is illegal in most of our states too. Such a useful resource I wish you had it available Darrell. I do so wish you Well.

Dave what a lovely thing to say, you're closer to the truth than you know. Thankyou for your comment.  I wanted to sing harmony in the chorus, but we didn't have enough time to practise so that I felt confident I could coordinate both guitar and singing and do it well for Skotty.  Next time I'll sing.

Oh Lynn what a generous thing to say. I feel so encouraged by your words, thankyou.

Damn this is rock 'n' roll!
Always a delight to see you in action and even though you had your setbacks, you find a way.
You are an inspiration to many!
This truly gave me a smile on my face and made my morning.
Can't wait to get back on the stage myself after seeing this video.

I don't know this Skotty guy but he seems a genuine warm fella.
What a cool song by the way!

Bass is fun right?!
I used to underestimate it.
I picked up bass myself becasue the company band already has 2 guitar players now and I seem the only one confident enough to do vocals, guitar ànd bass :p

So kind of you Lieven, thankyou and yes I'm determined to find a way, always. I'm glad it made you smile and fired up your enthusiasm to perform again. You're right about Skotty, he's is a warm, generous, genuine and a whole lot more. As I said in an earlier post, the combination of the folk in this forum, Justin's lessons and Skotty has seen me achieve things I didn't even dream of 3 years ago.

I love bass and hope to get back to playing it by the end of the year. Very impressed with your multi-talented versatility.

Maggie that was Good  ;) very GOOD

Listened a couple of days back but finally got round to posting comments. Thought you did a grand job on the bass, specially having to pick back up after the "interval". And it looks like you have a great teacher there if his enthusiasm, energy and talents are anything to go by. Hope things are moving in the right directions with your injuries. Certainly inspiring performance to everyone here on the forum.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Toby

Wow I just found this Maggie, what a great opportunity and you killed it! (In a good way)
.
Bravo for getting up there and bravo at your bass playing, it was really good and you were in the groove!  Scotty is the kinda guy I would love to have a late night jam with!
.
Many years ago my niece was an up and coming young singer she had a band and the bass player left. The guitar player was my music teacher at school.  They had gigs lined up for the next few months, twice a week at a big restaurant.  I got a call one night asking, begging me to play bass in the band. I agreed and we had a rehearsal and we were good.  I had to learn 40 songs very quickly and because she sung a lot of I don't know stuff like Dixie chicks etc, the bass lines were suprisingly tuff. Anyway I did months of gigs even got featured in a tv add for the place.  I forgot my point but I anyway it was was fun.   I was young and had no fear...wish I was like that now. 
.
Loved seeing you up there Maggie!
