I just got an electric bass. Bass man Bill sails a Mirror, Bass man Pete sails a 'grad', I sail a Laser - and I want to play like this guy on Youtube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1I1I6J_U5Q&feature=related I've some way to go, but I've started gigging with my 1969 tea chest - I'm the bass player for 'Raggle Taggle'. You can find them on my 'Barn Dance' page. Now how useful is that?
