    I have been playing bass for over 13 years but don't know the scales. I learned to play by ear on my own. Currently purchasing musical equipment and music software so I can begin composing my own songs and then record them. I also draw a little here and there and have made various song covers that I posted on a music making app that I use to for fun.
    I been using this website on and off for 5 years to learn more about basses and the various types of amps,boxes,pickups etc.
    I find the information and knowledge here to be very reliable and mostly it's my first "go to" website!
    Thanks!
