    I'm a guitar player who switched over to bass in the Fall of 2013 to play in a work-friend's original indie band. It's been a good challenge for me.

    Playing regularly with a drummer has given me a much better understanding of what it's about to play bass in a band. I'm not quite comfortable calling myself a 'bass player' yet, but I'm getting there.

    Over the past few years I've also learned how to do my own set-ups, repairs and modifications.
