Hi there, just thought I'd introduce myself. Found my way here after being recommended by members of the Metallica Musicians forum. With that being said you can probably guess I'm quite a fan. Metallica were the ones who first inspired me to pick up the guitar, but it was through many others that I was inspired to pick up the bass guitar. Current setup: Aria SB101 5 String Laney Ricter 3 combo Also use a few effects: Marshall Guv'nor II Marshall Echohead Boss BF-3 Flanger. I've been playing guitar for about 3 years now and bass for about 8 months. Well, I guess that does it for my introduction, already learnt a few things from browsing the odd forum, looks like a good place to hang around.
