Last year I broke a finger on my left hand – shattered the knuckle, and gave me a big set-back in my bass playing come-back. I had given up playing years ago, and had just started playing again. A year later, the finger is almost good as new. I used to play by ear, but I’ve actually been learning the fret board, and can read lead sheets when I play in the church band.
Last year I picked up a Fender acoustic-electric and Steinberger 5-string. They’re both excellent guitars, but what I really want is another Rickenbacker. I had one back in the 80s, and I sold it when I stopped playing before, and it’s one of my larger regrets.
A goal I have now is to get another one. And exactly the one I want. I’m picturing a brand new Jetglow 4003, I have no idea how I’m going to pay for it, but I’m certain that at some point in the not too distant future, I’ll get one.
I really missed not having music in my life, and I won’t be without it again.
