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

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!

Hey Maggie,
Like Toby, a little late commenting, but gave me a good reason to watch and listen again.
Yeah! You are rockin' it right there!  8)
I thought I was having deja vu, but it was because you had posted a couple of pics  in your roadcase and I had checked out Skotty's version on his fb page I think.
Anyway, it's a great song- and how cool to have someone write a song about you?
Well done you and I hope you're still on the mend
Cheers

Thanks so much Toby for your lovely comments. I'm very fortunate to have Skotty leading the way, he's everything you say and a whole lot more. He strikes an excellent balance between challenging me and not pushing me so far I crack. Injuries are healing but I wish it could be a whole lot faster, so much music to make and stuff to learn.

Hope you're enjoying your new guitar and how soon will we hear more of it?

Hey thank Alex, I appreciate your comments.  Sometimes Skotty hands me one of his electrics and off we go with me attempting to jam with him. It's messy and it's fun. One of his talents is that he can go anywhere with his students, from beginners to really good players. I'm sure you and he would have a great time jamming.

Don't let your age or your fear  stop you Alex.

Thanks very much for popping in Brian. Yeah pretty cool to have a song written about/for me and it's a crackin' song I reckon. I was gob smacked to say the least. It wasn't till I heard the "Hot pink finish with my chrome all sparkle shiny" that I had an inkling the song was about me in my state of disrepair. Pink is my fave colour.

I haven't been able to play Red my bass since that performance, but as you know I'm playing Cedar so that's a good thing. I'm hoping to be able to play Red before the year ends.

Thanks again Brian for your encouragement.

Oh I wish I could share it with you. Wife had a 2nd MI a couple of weeks back so recovery is still on going. Trying to play most evenings but it effects my mind set. So much I want to record but so little focus. But hey life goes on. Good to hear you are healing, more metta on the way to speed that up  ;)

Toby I'm dismayed to hear this. I know your wife has travelled a rocky road with her health. Sending thoughts of Wellness to both of you.

Metta gladly received. My PT is happy with my progress, will start strength exercises next week.

Hey Bytron, glad you found the thread. It was fun. Thanks for good wishes on the recovery, still can't play bass, but I'm determined it will happen.

Who was that on the video then? That person played the bass just fine!
