    Hey guys and gals,

    I've been reading through this forum for the past couple weeks and felt I may as well introduce myself before I start posting. Wasn't sure where this should be posted, so I took a guess. Been playing guitar for 12 years and have just fallen in love with all kinds of music. Within the past few years, I've really fallen in love with the groove aspect. And since my drummer and I can never seem to find a solid bassist to stick around, I took matters into my own hand. I play primarily in an alternate tuning (EGDB) and am now writing fusion/rock based originals full-time with a drummer as a duo. Just want to thank all the contributing users on this forum for all their knowledge they've poured on here for people on the interwebs to learn from. I am playing hand-me-down bass amps and am now looking to purchase quality set up for myself, so this site has been extremely resourceful in what to shop for. Posted below is a little clip of me playing my '89 American Jazz. Thanks again for all you do!

  2. Cool name and great song. My favorite Yes tune.
  3. There is a place, http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f147/ but no one goes there, reads the posts, or interacts... so this is as good of a place as any!

    From one n00b to another... Welcome!

    Definitely my favorite Yes song as well. I'm a huge Yeshead. That's the band that got me into music and playing on a whole different level.

  11. Welcome, man. Just a heads up: think carefully before you post abou sensitive material, lest you:

    a) Hurt sensible TB-ers' feelings
    b) Are branded a troll and public safety threat
    c) Are punished with demerit points or have your threads closed without warning or clear motive
    d) All the above

    Other than that, it's an enjoyable forum.
