    Don't want you to playing anything specific. Just keep on playing. Oh and if you love playing the bass so much, spread it, pass it on. Make tutorials for free and get more people to play (not a demand, just a suggestion). My overly procrastinating personality loves this. You made my sleepless night. Thank you for being you and stay healthy.
