    I'll start - post a pic of yourself playing bass, and/or your gear. I'll try to keep track of the membership numbers and I'll create a Facebook site as well.

    Requirements for membership:
    - you must play bass or at least own a bass
    - you must be Canadian, either at home or abroad

    It might be cool if you also posted:
    - your city/province,
    - your age,
    - the styles you currently play and have played,
    - your gear
    - any other useful info

    city/province: London Ontario

    your age: 19

    the styles you currently play and have played: I mainly play modern worship, mainly a rock/little bit funky type of stuff. I used to play some math rock and funk, plus me and a few friends just to play old blues songs jazz style. Say we would play purple haze and everyone would take a turn at a solo. It was a lot of fun.

    your gear: Fbass BN4, Peavey Foundation 5 (main bass because it is a five string), ibanez musician, washburn status bass. I play through a Yorkville 100B.

    Hey! What number am I?

    [​IMG]


    I'm from Ottawa, but I live in Hull, QC right now. I'm 22 years old and working on finishing up my Bachelor of Music in bass performance.
    I mainly play fusion right now, but I'm starting to venture more into traditional jazz.
    My main bass right now is a modified fretless G&L L1K. I also use a parts jazz bass. My rig is a Markbass SD800 into an Acme Low B2 cab.
    I consider myself very lucky because I get to study with the very talented John Geggie.
