While going ahead and performing and recording a few bass guitar tracks for A Blue Fairy Godmother's Don't Feel Bad About It album, I do believe that it dawned on one that, some musicians may confide in you, that a song itself has just got to be built upon something, but what is it that that "something" is supposed to be, exactly?
Is it a feeling?
Is it a memory?
Or is it a more tangible, more tactile "something" that is meant to be the backbone of a particular composition?
Is the foundation of a track, or of a tune, actually an instrument, that, more often than not, might happen to be habitually relegated to, or classified as, some type of obligatory, accompanying "bottom" to the, sometimes, more indirect, or much, much more subtle emotions, or concept, or concepts, of a given piece of music?
Well, do let me tell you, huh, that I believe that the bass guitar is not just another guitar, nor its player, or its owner, a kind of "second fiddle". Nor is either one of them the meager "butt" of some potentially slyly derogatory, or dismissive joke, for sure!
No, no, no!
That bass is not no laughing matter here!
