7th Street is where I settled, living above the acclaimed Bardea Restaurant, after relocating to start a new job in IT at one of the financial institutions in Wilmington, DE.
As I spent time with my colleagues outside of work in my new city that I was calling home, I realized that, they had something in common, music; either playing an instrument or singing for a live audience or both. Individually, each of them would perform at open-mics in restaurants, taprooms, clubs and other venues. Later, they decided to form a band to play together and decided that I would be the bass player.
What?!? I have never played a musical instrument in my youth or in my entire adult life. I was always in the audience cheering as they performed. I didn't want to disappoint, so with my newly purchased bass, amp and accessories (and the willingness to learn); weekly practice was regularly at my place on 7th Street (along with helpful mobile apps and resources online).
And so the journey began.
It's been over two years in my journey of becoming a bass player and for now, I would consider myself, the Apprentice.
Learning to play an instrument was never on my Bucket List and I thought it was something best taught during the formative years.
I am so happy that I've embraced musicianship later in life because I absolutely love playing the bass guitar.
It's very humbling to learn something brand new, but it has been so satisfying; and indefinitely rewarding.
Stylish, soft leather, wide strap and truly comfortable. Pairs nicely with both of my basses.
Most beautiful, baddest low end. Nice solid weight and sounds great; makes you want to play everyday.
Small amp; big sound with clean tones. Solidly built and well designed.
Affordable, sturdy and nicely padded. I have two; one for each bass.
Perfect for a Beginner: This Ibanez is lightweight and its size allows for long hours of play.
Perfect for a Beginner: Affordable and great for practicing at home.
