A beginner bassist's foray into the unknown

My shirts came in!

So last week, wifey went shopping and got these tall brown cowboy boots. Somehow, this is for winter. Well, I decided to get something to keep myself warm too, only I did it a bit different. I went online and grabbed images of some of my favorite bass players and put them together into a picture on the computer. I then dug around and found a cool image of a bass cleff and ordered two shirts from SpreadShirt.com. I made 2 variations. The first one has Alex Webster, Jeroen Thesseling and Steve DiGiorgio on it. The 2nd has Cliff Burton, Steve Harris and Geezer Butler. The back of each is that Gigeresque bass clef.

Well, the shirts just came in. 🙂 They were apparently inspected by someone named Sydney. There were 5 or 6 different long-sleeves to pick from. I opted for the kind that looked like it would be wearable outside, and that looked like it could handle some additional layering underneath. Right now, pre-wash, I’m happy with them. Wifey’s going to be mad when I grab her after work this afternoon (yeah, she has a Saturday shift today). She also ordered some shirts from Indonesia and heard yesterday that it’ll take 14-21 days to arrive in the states. 😉 I think hers are Joy Division and The Smiths. They’re not customized like mine though. 😉

Here’s the first one:



This is the 2nd:



Here’s the back image:

We need more bass shirts. There are lots of band shirts floating around, but none really promote the bottom end. If you’re interested in making your own, here’s a link to SpreadShirt. There’s an area on their website that you can use to upload images for the front and back of a shirt. Sadly, there was no way to print on the sleeves.
