Musicians are not good social distancers. Performers, teachers, students, garage-jam players, fans of live music -- getting together is part of what we do.
But not right now. To blunt the spread of the coronavirus and protect our loved ones and communities, we have to spend a lot more time at home. It will feel strange, but it does not need to be unproductive.
Pick up your instrument. Sit down and cradle it. Noodle out a riff. Learn a new song. Explore some new techniques. Study the style of a favorite player.
This will not last forever. But we must act forcefully and responsibly now. If what we do at this point does NOT feel like overreacting, then it is not enough.
BassBooks.com will continue operating as normally as possible, to keep you supplied with books and music. Our suppliers' warehouse and shipping facilities could be affected by shut-downs, as could deliveries by the US Postal Service and UPS. Of course, our EBOOK downloads will always be available.
