I've been trolling this site for years and have been pretty active on the MyLesPaul forums for a while. Thought I should join and share some of my bass knowledge and hopefully learn from you all. I'm a session player and audio engineer in Nashville. I've got sort of a Noel Redding story...started out as a guitarist, then switched to bass when I joined a blues/rock/psychedelic power trio. The rest was history! Cheers and happy new year.
