"funny, ironic observations - "not buying a Fender Electric Bass....so......"


  

          

Things in the USA...hmmmm...don't look all that great...yes?

trumpy GOP seems like they are going further and further..2022 Midterms?


I was planning buying LOT's of musical instruments, musical equipment with my expected tax return money...but now...don't know about really engaging in some type of "entertainment plan/musical program" with a resurgent trumpy GOP getting stronger in this country.

but...

Many folks got to "keep on" with their plans, hopes and dreams in the USA, no matter what happens politically...because they got to care for their families, build wealth, etc.


I don't have kids, either.



So..I was like:

"Man, some people trying to "get ahead in the USA" gonna have a tough time if the GOP really starts "Steve Bannon-ing" this country completely..."

"but..."

"I'm not buying an electric bass guitar...so I'm okay."

is priceless...esp in this climate of not being able to move about freely in the public and do the things we used to do pre covid. ive been playing guitar for a long time but i also have a bass that i mess around with and recently started piano lessons again after many years (basically starting from scratch).

most ppl considering getting an instrument at this age have a love for the music (which id wager is the case based on your musical knowledge and difft posts youve made) indulge yourself homey you wont be mad.

..then...hey...

but...

...the bass along with the several OTHER things to go with it would have been like "I'm thinking I can 'chill' here in the south with just a few hundred $$$ left.."

and...I don't think so....


Having as much $$$ as I can keep from the expected tax return $$ seems best now.

I'm just not one to give a politician credit from stopping me from my hobbies/joy..

maybe it takes a bit longer to justify the cost.

It ain't trump tho..

So I was thinking of a "upgrade" for a better overall thing.

But now....

Whatever I do with my limited stuff...will have to suffice. I definitely don't think anyone will want to buy it in its current form.

For me a new instrument is often a good catalyst to get into the studio. Didn’t realize you already had a bass

Bought my first bass last year. Really fun instrument.

In response to Reply # 17


  

          

If you can play guitar at all you can definitely play simple bass lines.

It makes a big difference and really does fill out the music, more than you might even expect.

Also, again, really fun to play for some reason.

I say that as a bass player who has had dozens of basses over the years, and in almost every case I sold them for more than what I paid (exceptions being when I bought new.)

On top of that the quality of basses available on the lower end of the market is INCREDIBLE vs. what it was 10 years ago. Fender Squires are great basses now. I bought a 5 string Squire P bass as a backup to my main Sadowsky and MTD basses for the gigs where I don't want to bring a $5000+ instrument to a random bar, and that Squire absolutely still gets the job done.
