Well Just wanted to jump right in and hopefully I put this is the right place. Just joined tonight. I guess I wear the badge of NEWBIE.. But I'm a older dog. I just started playing Bass 7 months ago. My Gear is a Fender American Jaco Jazz Fretless. I am as you say a bedroom Musician. I spend about 2 to 4 hours a day playing my bass till my fingers hurt. I work out of my home so I can spend that much needed time learning. I've come from a long road of music background. I have a small but adequate bedroom setup which I store about 3.000 vintage Rock,R&B,Jazz LP's. My Bass players of choice are.. Jaco James Dewar Francis Prestia Flea Stanley Clark Bootsy I really wanted to hang out here so that I could learn a thing or to. I'm not a youngster so I don't ask to many questions. Hopefully I will learn what it takes to hang out in here and not piss anyone off. As far as my opinion of Bass playing... A good Bass player is hard to find. And if your good... Let the world hear you. Glad to be here.
