| | My Instrument and Styles
I'm about 1/2 through the stickies in the forums I usually
read and will want to post in. But I'll have definitely finished
them before I start making threads. Thanks for the tip!
My main instrument is an Ibanez Soundgear Gio 4 String. I
also have a Dean Rhapsody 12 String Bass that I don't use
quite as frequently (not everything needs the 12 string's
benefits and limitations), but it nonetheless part of my
And as for a style of Music that I play, I try not to pigeon
hole myself into a single genre or style. That said, I enjoy
playing ska and groovy metal for the often interesting
repeating basslines... but definitely only songs with a defined
melody and harmony, no muddy sounds or hardcore/atonal stuff.
I also dabble in Jazz a bit, though that is more of a hobby-hobby.
The people I play with most are really into pop punk and similar
sounding music, so I play a lot of that too. And, for the artistic
satisfaction and chops/repertoire building, I also love playing
Classic Rock and Prog... Though again, not the really far
out there Progressive stuff, I prefer things in normal(ish) time
signatures and with a resolution.
I dunno. I am looking for a steady band at the moment; if I
had one I'd just say the style of music my band plays. I try
to play as much of everything as I can, especially because
I am still pretty new to the instrument (only about a year of
experience). I hope that this answers Your question!
