    Hey there.

    I know this is casting a really narrow net in the huge pod of TalkBass - but I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm looking to hook up with another "solo bassist" in the SF Bay Area to jam bass duo style.

    Drop me a pm or e-mail if you're into giving something weird a try! :D

    thanks!

    Hope I can be that creative one day.

    HA!

    The funny thing about winning the contest is how many offers I get to buy stuff!
     
  7. I live in Rohnert Park... I know a few great bassists around here. I remember a few months ago I had a bassist jam, which was very fun. We jammed a little and played some standards.
     
  8. Schmidty, let's hook up. ;)

    Although I live in LA, I am up in your area at Stanford about once a month.


     
  9. I'd be up for that. I live in Richmond (East Bay). I'm pretty busy but I'm sure we can get together sometime. I'll e-mail you my phone number when I get home.

    Where are you located?

    Sweet!

    Jay - how can I refuse the opportunity to make noise with a dude who blows his own bass? :eek:

    Dave - I live in San Rafael - I understand the busy thing - me too.

    Geoff - any of those bassists into weird stuff. ya know - taxidermy - phronology, stuff like that? Kidding.

    I'll be in touch!

    :hyper:

    Hey Jeff, I live in SoCal, but I've been planning a trip up to the bay an beyond(washington is the final destination), for november sometime. I was planning on bringing at least my ABG with me, but I could take my Fodera as well. I'd totally be down to bonk out some notation with ya, be in touch via PM and we can set something up closer to the mark.

    Of course.

    You might wanna bring a bass. Ya know. Just in case. ;)
     
  14. Yeah, when Daddy Manring shows up, we'll have to have him flaunt his domestic side and make lunch for us all. In doing that, he would leave at least 20 Zons at our compositional disposal!!! ;)

    I get the Hyperbass..... ;)

    I don't think I'm good enough to join in, but I'd love to come and watch if that's possible. I can bring my DAT recorder too.

    Jay - Email me when you visit Stanford, ok? I'm a grad student and work there.
