When I wrote my last post about how the first two frets on my bass guitar didn't work - I discovered that from playing sitting down with my bass guitar situated in a non-normal fashion on my lap and belly --- it was kind of sideways.
Maybe gravity interacting with the vibration of the strings had something to do with the quality.
Today I grabbed my bass guitar again and played it standing up with the bass guitar oriented the way a performer would play it --- vertically rather than horizontally.
This time I got a much better sound.
The E and A string worked on all frets this time.
The D and G string worked on the second fret.
The only thing that seemed a bit off at this point was the D and G string on the first fret. And that was it.
It appears to be good now.
As for the economic part of yesterday's post::::
I started thinking::: what if I have done everything that I can to sell stuff?
What if there's literally nothing I can do to actually sell things?
What if people seriously just don't have money to spend on my products?
With all the massive amounts of debt that exist --- it definitely seems possible that don't see me as someone they should budget in.
So maybe I should just take a vacation. If it's just plain impossible for me to sell my work --- then why work?
And if it's true that the government takes what I earn and redistributes it to my disability program --- they hey, that's Christianity for you. I sold what I have and it went to the poor.
But I don't really know. It just seems like a possibility.
The church I grew up in taught a communal economic system that could be compared with communism ---- but the church insisted they were different from communism for some odd reason.
I guess there are just different flavours of such ideas or something.
But to be honest, when I think about it --- there are so many similarities ---- what to think?
Probably a big difference is just that we know the church is prone to huge mismanagement.
Anyway --- now I have nothing to say.
