Hello from Eugene OR

  1. Hello! I’m pretty new here. I had once had an account a few years ago that I used sparingly, but I’m back now! I’m pretty active over on the SquierTalk forum, but this is the place to be for bass knowledge. I’m a native bassist (it’s my first & primary instrument that is), I love fretless and short scale basses. My current rig is my defretted Squier TB precision bass and a Fender Rumble 500.
    Musically I fall mainly into rock genres. Coming up through high school I played electric and upright in the orchestra and jazz band. Tried majoring in music performance for a little in college until I joined the army. Since then I’ve only been playing electric. I draw a lot of influence from 60’s-70’s rock, Jamerson, and Latin grooves, though the two largest influences through my journey have probably been Jaco and Flea (“can’t stop” is the song that made me pick up a bass the first time and try to make that funky driving groove). Thanks for having me here at TalkBass!
  2. Welcome.
