The Familiar Pain

Ah, there it is again – that sweet dull ache after playing the bass all day after a long hiatus. I’m actually amazed at how much it is all coming back to me – finger positioning, scales, intonation, even bowing. Got the bass back in my possession today and it sounds awesome. Alex Friedman of South San Francisco did the repair work. The guy is a real pro when it comes to bass restoration, and has worked on a lot of the basses in the San Francisco Symphony. He can be reached at (650) 583-8197.

Awesome work… the sound is huge now – the thing is totally playable – and it just looks gorgeous.
