Take Your Barker Bass Dancing Tonight!
Terpsichore. Not a word we get to use in casual conversation often enough. From the Muse by the same name, the one who inspires dance. You probably know where this is heading: Matt Dancing
Here is simplicity overlaid with logistical complexity beyond imagining by someone who has two weeks of vacation a year. But if you used to have two weeks and now have no job, these few minutes could be good medicine.
The Barker Bass, from the point of view of the creator, your writer, can tend to be seen in the shadow of a sacrosanctity that would not allow humor.
But there are days when humor is not only the best medicine but also the only bottle in the medicine chest.
Hence these optional endpin addenda (which are indeed for sale) and may be just the right touch for that certain gig.
Installation requires the removal of the rubber tip (it's glued on but can be forced off) and the temporary insertion of a pilot shaft which is a permanent part of the accessory.
Accessorize your bass! Adornment! It's subtler than a rubber chicken, more environmentally friendly than a string of flashing Yule lights, and more easily removed than Nascar stickers!
Above all, take a moment to dance with Matt. Good for your head, your heart and your soul and everything in between.
