At the encouragement of my daughter, I have finally opened the bass cases after 20 years. It is cool seeing how things have changed but not too much. My daughter plays piano and keyboard (from a new Roland Synth to a '77 Fender Rhodes) and the recording/sampling end will take a bit to get used to, gone are the days of the tascam...... But I am excited about playing again! Played a five string for the first time, and came home with a new Jackson! That extra string hasn't gotten in the way yet and I'm finding that it sounds awesome. So hello, Hi and all that and I look forward to many hours on the forum.
