This is my bass. There are many like it but this one is mine. My bass is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my bass is useless. Without my bass I am useless. I must know all there is to know about my bass. I must play my bass 'true'.... I will.
Before God I swear this creed: my bass and myself are the defenders of my music, we are the masters of our 'sound', we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is nothing but harmony and peace. Amen
