Today is one of the theme days for the 7 Days group – “action”. My original theory was to head up to the local park and experiment with some jumping shots but that seemed like too much hard work. As I lay snugly in bed this morning, I contemplated taking a very inactive shot and then inverting the colours (because inaction is the inverse of action). Then, as I got up and saw my wild bed-hair, I thought of doing something involving a spot of headbanging.
By the time I came to take the picture though, I had arrived at a different idea. One of the challenges of double bass is the high action – the gap between the strings and the fingerboard. In this shot, you can see the action of the strings AND the action of my fingers and I get a shot of my double bass playing to take home!
