Attention Double Bass Players: The folk scene’s favourite bassist Liz Frencham needs your help for her latest video.

Frustrated with constantly being told that she should have chosen a smaller instrument Frencham has done what any self respecting muso would do and written a song about it called “That’s a Big Guitar”. And for the video she’s decided to crowd-source the footage from her fellow frustrated bass players.

What she’s after is five second clips humourously demonstrating the difficulties inherent in playing an instrument of its size – think transportation, storage, playing, etc. The clips can be iPhone quality if that’s all you’ve got – as long as they’ve got bass. Submissions for videos close on the 18th December.

You can upload your videos, check out other videos and read the lyrics of “That’s a Big Guitar” over at Liz Frencham’s Facebook group here.

I guess next time I see Liz I should refrain from using the “how do you fit that under your chin” joke I normally use with bass players…
