  • I like to pick up my blue Fender jazz bass and play some 12 bar blues. If I could figure out how to record a sound, I would play it for you now. Muddy Waters and the Mississippi Delta. Juke joints and moonshine. Makes me think about drinking and crying and a woman trying to steal my man. But I don't think. I just pick up my bass and play the blues, riding along on the sad, sad sound.
