Nothing escapes Elmeauxís eagle eye. I posted a link via Facebook to an article on Home Recording, and she suggested that I should do it up for TR as well.

When it comes to the decision to play the bass guitar, not everybody is picking up the instrument for the first time. Sometimes, the person who wants to play already has many years of experience. Did you play as a young person and give it up when job, family and, well, LIFE needed your attention more than your beloved bass?
We all know that players might have to put down their basses to do the things they have to do in this world. But there's no reason why you can't come back. Now that your major responsibilities have been met, are you itching to get back to being a thunder-maker? If you're a bit nervous or reluctant to take the plunge, read this little fictional story. I hope it will inspire you to do what you know you want to do!
