week 43 image

Week 43.  I really enjoyed this week's music. As you can hear, I played it out on our wooden porch with the rest of the family band. I had fun emulating dobro guitar sounds with .......................... (just for a change), my double bass. I'm not going to tell you how I did it, it's a secret! 

It has been a real challenge all through the project to find ways of extending the range of my basses and making them work in different contexts. It is very exciting, and I have learnt a lot. 

I wanted an artless, organic image to go with this music, because that is how I think about a lot of bluegrass or country music. Like a lot of musical styles it has become homogenised over the years, but can be completely real. I tried also to let this image show its own history.
