    Disclosures:
    Used to have a commerical bass guitar website (bass-guitar-essentials.com) but it is now discontinued
    I'm primarily a bass player, but started out with piano lessons and branched from there to drums, acoustic guitar, and then bass. I started playing with a family band in the '60s playing for wedding dances, Christmas parties and other local events. In my late teens I became a Christian and started playing at church. I have played with small teams (for P&W) to large orchestras (for Christmas and Easter productions) and have had opportunities to do a bit of recording, television and a few large events in stadiums.
    I trained as an electronics technologist and for a few years (during the '80s) I did electronic repairs at music stores as part of an electronic servicing company I owned/operated. My company also did sound contracting, selling and installing systems in schools, churches, retail outlets and restaurants.
    These days I make a living as a technical writer. I still play bass (as well as drums and acoustic guitar) at a small inner city church in my city. I also look after the sound and video systems there.
