It Must've Been the Orientation

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.


Hooray!




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.
