Been playing bass for a year and a half now and find myself progressing quickly and loving it. Started taking lessons after shoulder surgery sidelined me. Supplemented the lessons with ps3 rocksmith. Love it. Found a entry level LTD bass with a small fender amp on craigslist originally. Currently looking for an upgrade, Leaning G&L with a cube 120xl amp. My research lead me here. Advice on a good 4 sting rock bass is welcome! Blessed with a sister that can sing the crap out of anything, we've written a few songs. One in particular that has garnered lots of love from local industry people. Motivating to say the least. Just finished writing one on my own! Great to be here, James S.
