Welcome (back) to the Single Bass web site!
Next gig coming up: Nottinghamshire Pride, at the Arboretum, on Saturday 27 July. Festival of lesbian, gay, bi, trans & queer culture; gay-friendly straight people welcome too. Yet another daytime, family-friendly, outdoor-subject-to-weather event :-)
It turned out that my finger injury (left hand ring finger) was much more significant than at first appeared - a fracture, which had pretty much healed by the time I knew it was there, and some joint damage which will probably never entirely reverse. I may have a slightly-inflexible finger for the rest of my life now.
However, it hasn't stopped me playing! Four months on, most songs are back in the repertoire; it's only the ones that use "hammering-on" that I'm still being cautious of, because they're such hard work for the muscles and ligaments. The specialist said injuries like these are generally slow to heal and I may continue to regain strength and flexibility for another year yet, so I'm optimistic it'll make no odds in the long run.
In other not-so-news, the little video I uploaded in March can now be seen on the "What is Single Bass?" page, as well as on its home page at Vimeo. The video's 3'28" long and has bits of three different songs: Temptation, Radiation blues and Completion song.
Most recent studio recording is still Gender lines. Happy listening!
