However, since I was asked to do it, I will try not to bore you to death on the subject. Here it is:
I scaled down a bit gear-wise, sold the short scale bass and the smaller bass practice amp. Got interested in Home Recording and acquired some more equipment. More stuff to do and learn, less time to write. Well... it sounds like I’m making up excuses, but it’s only human, you know.
