  1. I'm 5'7 and 140 LB's (small stereotype) and play a 35 scale bass

    I wear a fisherman's hat regularly

    Usually have at least a goatee, sometimes slightly-shorter sideburns

    My musical tastes span from Norma Jean (The band, not Marilyn Monroe) to the Grateful Dead to Primus (and I'm one of two people I know who likes them)

    I'm trying to learn to read and learn theory, no one I know who plays a stringed instrument outside of school can do either

    I say solid groove to the point of it being a catch phrase.

    I try not to be confrontational

    Let me give this a try.

    About me:
    - 6'2", 250 lb, bald, black guy (think ex-football type player build)
    - Frustrated guitar player

    I literally laughed out loud at how easy it was to play during my first practice session with a bass guitar.

    This video pretty sums up my experience with the bass:
  3. i shaved my beard off does that mean that i have to turn in my bassist card?

    Whenever I have a bass in my hands I ALWAYS try and find the groove. I just noticed it the other day while at a friend's house that no matter what was playing in the background I always found myself listening and trying to play a part that fit in.

    Your bassist license has been revoked - turn it in. :D
