I’m not really covering much ground at the moment on the electric bass
Every time I try practice the electric bass the cat comes and sits on my laptop and messes with my bass and cables so it’s really putting me off my practice. I think I need to start kicking him out of my practice room
That’s another day done. I’ll probably post more of my other practices on here as I’m sure it will make me into a more rounded musician.
