    Hobbies and Interests:
    I've been drawing 18+ years about now, tattooing (myself) for about one year, and recently I found I like hiking to waterfalls.
    I'm Mars, I'm a gay, 20 year old bassist. I've been playing for around 7 years, began mid 2015. I began to start playing after I saw a video of a Motorhead live performance where I was really inspired by the way Lemmy played and sounded. I very quickly became a gear fanatic and found more bassists and music that inspired me. From all this, I'd like to think I've developed a kind of bass playing style that's pretty unique to me. I kind of despise the very traditional, modern, glassy, clean, thin, very technical style bass sound. To me, it sounds very bland and similar between so many players. My aim is to be the opposite of that. I play in a way that appeals to my ears. I try to play in a way that fills out the sonic range as much as I can. I want to feel an eveloping low end with a grinding mid that cuts right through at the same time. I play with a lot of chords, droning strings, double stops, octaves. I try to always play more than one string at a time, if I can help it. It's made bass playing so much fun for me with a sound that I just don't get tired of. I do not care if it's not traditionally correct/practical, overwhelming, or anything like that. I value the unorthodoxy because I love it so much. It's never not a joy to plug in my 3 amps and create a massive, oppresing sound. All about the insane rigs, high output, and love of oppresive sound you can feel.
