    Hello for those who wanted to know me more! I grew up here in Virginia and learned music through the public school system. There was no orchestra, but a jazz band and concert band, where I played mostly electric bass, so I taught myself the upright bass.
    I never knew fingerings were 1,2,4 on the bass until I finally had a teacher in college, as I was always fingering it 1,3,4! haha
    I'm here to hopefully become more aware of bass things, give me a shout, I'd love to hear from my community!
