Bass ramblings

I bought a new bass last weekend. It's my first Cort bass, and the first bass guitar I've owned where the neck isn't bolted on to the body but 'neck-through'. I tried it out at home, playing along to a selection of songs by others, much in the way I learnt to play, sitting by my hi-fi, trying to work out the bass lines. This time, being a bit more capable than I was back then, I played for hours and had a huge amount of fun.

Last night I tried it out for real with the band and relished the differences between it and the other basses I play. Wider neck, different tone, insane amount of sustain. Playing music with friends when the songs and the quality of the playing is so good, is one of the best things I can imagine doing.
