Ever since I was a kid, I have always dreamed of becoming musician. I remember visualizing myself performing in front of great crowds embracing the overwhelming response from my imaginary fans. When I grew up, I did exert some effort to learn how to play at least one musical instrument but I just end up with so much frustration. Well, I have learned the basics but I have to accept the fact that it is impossible for me to turn those ambitious dreams of mine into a reality.Since I am not a fast learner when it comes to this matter, i am quite hesitant to invest money to buy musical instruments yet. I believe that my knowledge in music is not good enough yet to treat myself with these stuffs. Luckily for me, I have a cousin who got his own set of instruments including this bass guitar which I always borrow from him. Interestingly, bass guitar is not always the first choice for those who wanted to learn guitar but little did they know, bass guitar player plays plays a crucial role in every band. The bass player’s role in the band is to maintain the rhythmic groove. Bass guitars, however, cannot be appreciated easily if it is not accompanied by equipments like amplifiers. It takes a lot of juice plus hefty speakers to accurately reproduce the output of an electric bass, and there’s a vast selection of gear available to meet those requirements. Basic guitar amplifiers may work effectively for bass guitars but it would be more ideal to use a specialized bass amp like mark bass for example.
I may not be a great musician today or in the near future but this wouldn’t stop me from doing what I love. Playing instrument, after all, is a skill what we can all learn. With right amount of determination and passion, everything is possible.
