Are you the 'fat bass' guy, not the 'phat bass' guy? Give up grains, starches and sugars and be thin with a phat tone! Apr 23, 2014

    For a guy who has bought and sold a lot of basses, I really have no significant bass talent. I just enjoy the whole bass thing -- learning, playing, buying, selling, trading -- all of it. I try to play for 1/2-2 hours a day.

    My talents have really progressed quite a bit once since I 'discovered' narrow string basses, particularly Pedulla's. Seems that was my 'missing link' for moving forward faster. Despite big hands, I like short movements, and never felt very good with 19mm basses.

    By day I am a 'retired' slacker, but in real life I am a 'gentleman soybean farmer'.
