    I don't play bass, but I'm a novice, and I mean novice, lefty tenor banjo player located in Ashland, VA (near Richmond) with an interest in Irish/Celtic, New Orleans jazz, folk music, jug band, old-time and such.

    I'm looking for someone or someones in my area with similar enough musical interests who would like jam, practice & share some tunes. Fellow beginners welcome. Not interested in forming a band or playing in public, just low-key, no-pressure living room/garage/kitchen/backyard jamming.

    Outside of traditional roots music I also like “contemporary” bands Grateful Dead, Phish, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, Ween, MGMT, O'death, Camper Van Beethoven...so I wouldn't mind playing some of these tunes as well (on tenor banjo!) but in an old-timey style, preferably.

    Welcome to TB! You'll want to post this in the "bassists wanted" forum.

    Hey, I grew up in Ashland! My mom still lives there. I'm up in DC now, so I'm no help with meeting up to play, but it's cool to see someone else from such a small town!
