    I did Tony’s Acoustic Challenge some years ago and drifted away. I’m a bass player and am transitioning to playing cello in an acoustic guitar based quartet. Last November I rejoined Tony’s Acoustic Challenge and this time I’ve gotten into playing regularly and for my own enjoyment. I’m still fundamentally a bassist/cellist, but I’ve found that many of the things I’m learning here, in particular the Fretboard Wizard lessons, can be transferred to the bass and cello. This week’s TAC daily lessons on Mississippi Hill Country Blues, has somehow lit a fire in me. The droning bass with simple melody accompaniment is thrilling and has definitely turned practice into playing. Each morning I’ve stayed with the video and learned to play along. Each afternoon I go back to playing along with the video and then in the evening I’ve jammed out on my own. What a blast! One of these days I’m going to put down my cello at band practice and pick up a guitar and my band mates are going to be in for a surprise.

    @Sandbar I got such a kick out of your post. I absolutely love the enthusiasm. I agree that the drone bass is awesome. It’s cool to see the excitement and to hear how you’re playing along with the videos and the jamming out on your own. I would love to see your band,ages faces when you pull the guitar out. Keep on having fun and sharing your enthusiasm!
