    to much to mention. I write and just build a vlog studio.
    Jumped into a band in 1985, my budds were forming it and I wanted in, could not play anything, so I decided I'll sing. Later I picked up the bass, our gitarist who also owned the bass we used lend me his fender P bass 1974 and I learned a few songs and loved it. Bought a 500 bob hohner P bass copy. This was the Joy Division tribute band. Reused the parts later to make my own bass, which I used for recording a CD with my then band. In 2005 we restarted the tribute band again, minus our drummer who is no longer with us. We had some issues in members and just recently reset with a new singer after I took care of the mike for a couple of years, since then I'm back on bass. Sold my Washburn and aquired my current collection over the last year. It felt like homecoming, I loved the bass before, but being away from it for a while made me realize how much.
    And recently I joined the Cure cover band. I am a staunch advocate in the bass is mainly about your pick hand and less your, in my case left hand. I play more rythmic, which all my drummers always loved as I can really glue those notes on their rythms. learned the less is more from Robbie shakespeare. Being a solo freak is for guitarists drum and bass are what people dance to. We are the groove, the drummer sets the beat, we create the movement.

    It is not what you play, it is how you play it that counts.
    I am limited, but I had people that can really play up a storm come to see my former band as that drummer and me set up a groove they envied.
