    Hey everyone,

    Im new to TalkBass. 30 yr old NJ native here, been playing guitar and bass for about 12 years. I am mainly into Roots Music/Americana and 80s/90s style Alternative. I guess you can say im returning to the bass after about a 5 year layoff. Played Fender Precisions and Jazzes in rock bands years ago, but had sold my bass gear to buy a Taylor Acoustic guitar and focus on trying to do the singer/songwriter thing. That is still my main musical focus, but I really started to miss playing the bass.

    Had a few extra bucks so I went out and bought an Epiphone EB-0 (review soon to come!) and a little practice amp...and man it felt good to strap a 4 string over my shoulder again. Been having a blast just playing in my living room and lots of good memories coming back.

    Hopefully I can pick up some new tips and info while contributing my knowledge as well. Looking forward to spending time around here! :bassist:
