Roy Vogt’s Fantasy Bass Boot Camp is just two days away which has me transitioning from the practicing stage to the packing stage. Â I am feeling fairly confident in my playing ability on the two songs I chose to learn, though my soloing efforts have not improved as much as I would have liked. Â At this point I’ve decided not to worry about it too much and just enjoy the ride. Â As I said before I’m not going to spend my days at Bass Camp stressing over whether or not I can pull off a solo, it’s just not that big of a deal.
Tonight I plan to get all of my gear and materials together, decide what I really need to take and what I can live without. Â Tomorrow I will pack everything up, trying to keep it as light as possible, so that I will be all set to catch my flight bright and early on Sunday morning. Â I’ll be taking my Fender Jazz Deluxe bass with me in a hard case, I had thought about taking my Lakland 44-01 but the jazz has just been speaking to me lately. For a headphone amp I plan to use my iPad with my Apogee Jam as I would be taking my iPad anyway and with Garageband, PocketGK, AmpKit and Amplitube I have a myriad of choices at my disposal. Â
I decided to go to Roy’s Bass Camp last October and can’t believe how fast the time has flown since then. Â It is just hitting me that it is real now. Â It’s not just someplace I am going in the future, that future is two days away!! Â I hope to get off a couple of posts while I am there but can’t promise anything, I will definitely be tweeting throughout the week though. Â If nothing else I promise to post a full recap upon my return.
