watt’s picture of the week – monday, may 8, 2023

fifty years ago I had a job on the other side of this hatch tying papers for the l.a. times using these cranker-type tying machines to get up the money to buy my first bass, a $100 kay copy sort of a gibson eb-3 from this place called “chuck’s sound of music” which was upstairs in the southeast corner of the park western plaza, right near peck park in my pedro town which is where I met d boon three years before this which was the reason I got this bass cuz I was using a guitar w/just four strings… I had only seen pictures of basses and didn’t know they had bigger strings, I thought they just had fewer of them like a tonto! man, am I a slow learner…
