- G.A.S. List:
Contrary to Talkbass policy, I'm very happy with what I have now, so GAS is low.
Having said that, I wouldn't mind trying a Sterling 5, an L-2500, a Bongo 5, or a Reflex 5. I might be willing to trade one of my basses for one of those. Might.
- Influences and Teachers:
Instructor: Arnez Hayes.
Influences: primarily many of the classic and progressive rock bassists often mentioned here, such as Dave Hope (well, he's not mentioned so often, but he should be!), Geddy Lee, Mike Rutherford, John Paul Jones, Roger Glover, John Wetton, Graham Maby, Sting, Michael Anthony, Adam Clayton. Just starting to scratch the surface of the blues and jazz greats....
- Hobbies and Interests:
- Being a dad, music, photography, and computers
Yeah, I suck, I know that. But at least I suck a little less than I did yesterday.
