I have been in 3 bands in the past as a background and some lead vocals (bands were short lived). Husband bought a bass thinking he was going to learn it and it's been sitting in a corner collecting dust for 8 years. I used to play guitar (very basic) at church but no longer have my guitar and decided that we have a brand new bass I might as well learn something new and make good use of it. I have always loved the sound of a strong bass notes / beats the really make music full without it the song(s) would be missing the feeling. I'm inspired by Bootsy Collins, Flea, Adam Clayton and John Paul Jones. I hope by year end I will learn a few songs.
