I see we've all been given a blogging hurry along by a guy called Richard who runs a bass bagging site - here.
What Richard forgets is that some of us are professional musicians and not just amateur part-timers.
Things have been very busy with the Southern Sinfonia.
We've got Holly Mathieson conducting Beethoven in August.
I don't know if Richard could get through Beethoven. Maybe I need to head north, when things quieten down, and give him a double bass lesson.
