Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.
The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)
Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

- My main project at the moment is a 4 piece band (The Book Of Vilah), Double bass, classical guitar, bouzouki and vocals. I have a few solo recording projects of varied genres. I play with as many people as I can... have bass will travel.
- Previously Owned Gear:
- Its not really bass stuff but I can offer advice on recording mixing and mastering. As an audio engineer I have recorded a wide range of music. As a bassist I have played many styles.
- G.A.S. List:
- to make a living playing bass!
- Influences and Teachers:
- When I was young Brian Ritchies acoustic bass guitar playing on the violent femmes first album. Charlie Haden, I love his versatility and the wide cross section of music he has played. My teacher! I guess I am more inspired by music as a whole rather then just bassists. At the moment I am going through an Ethnic/ gypsy phase. This will probably change soon. When I hear or see anyone play really well on any instrument it inspires me.
- Hobbies and Interests:
- Motorcycling, writing, audio production
