Stogie the Bass Player, One Year Later (Video) Playing "Moondance"

I've been playing and practicing with this band for a year now and have learned a lot about playing bass.  Below we are playing Van Morrison's great song, "Moondance."  We were playing for a Christmas party and there is a lot of background chatter and noise; our singer is new and inexperienced; and we are not all that fantastic nor are we ready for prime time.  Nevertheless, I am pleased with my progress after a year and look forward to learning a lot more.

I am on the left in the video, in back, playing a red bass guitar.  If you listen with headphones you can hear my bass quite well.  Without the headphones you can't hear me at all, not on small computer speakers.

Sounding good.

I haven't played in a year, cuz my ears are too blasted out and I don't want to do anymore damage.

Pas, couldn't you play something with less volume? Sad to give up music, but I know that rock musicians often experience hearing loss.
