The Gretsch G2220 Junior Jet Bass
Music is turning out to be my next Ham Radio. This instrument will complete my “Tiny Desk Studio”. I have never had any inkling to play bass, but then I started hearing that all of the guitar / bass manufacturers had smaller basses that were originally meant for students to learn, turned out to be very popular with all levels of bass player. One big benefit is that guitarists – who play a shorter neck than a bass, can feel comfortable with this reduced size bass and fret board. The second benefit is the sound – many say they love the tonal range of the shorter bass. Now – add in that they are quite a bit cheaper than their full sized big brother – and so I bit the bullet.
I have been having just the best time during this Covid-19 shut down with music. I have never had so many ideas while at the same time improving my playing ability. This music inspiration has spilled over to writing lyrics and now – add in visual arts.
Add in riding my bike 6 days a week and getting back into some DBA work with Postgres, Redshift and Snowflake at work, and I really don’t want to go back to the way it was. This is so much better.
We have been continuing to contribute to the economy by doing take out once a week (we hardly ever go out to eat), and of course go food shopping and have been to the hardware stores too.
I’m hoping for at least a treatment for this horrible disease, but while we wait, I feel quite happy and content at home.
