One thing that I have been thinking about a lot is my performance ability on stage. It really is the next level of performing and entertaining an audience. When you know how to play well, that’s great, but the next step is to move around, interact and really put on a show, and that requires a whole new skill set. Not only new skills, but you must combine the playing with the “performing.”
As you can imagine, being hardwired into your amp with a cable can be restricting. This analogy may be a little far out, but go with me: remember bumper cars as a child? I always wished I could just drive the bumper car out of the rink and take it anywhere. I always knew that it wouldn’t drive unless it was on the track. This is what it feels like being attached to a cable on a stage.
I just ordered myself a wireless bass system, which allows me to be completely free on stage to run in circles, go into the audience or even walk out the door and still be playing full volume. Now, some systems are worse than others for clarity, but I did my research and got a really nice one. I will be encouraging my band mates to do the same very soon, so we can all be able to move around without worrying about tripping on cables or only being able to go so far away from our spots.
Seriously looking forward to using it for our upcoming shows. Hope to see you there
Until next time,
