Hello from Intro

  1. Hello everyone. Figured I'd stop lurking and actually join :bassist:
    I'm 29 and started playing bass at 19 (guitar came first, at 12).

    Id like to think I've come a long way since I first tried to play as a gigging bassist with no bass experience (I had the basic idea how to play bc of guitar, I just didn't know how to stop noodling and just groove!).

    Don't have a band currently, but I do weekly bass/guitar jams with my best bud, until we finally find a suitable drummer.

    Anyway, hope everyone is safe and doing well.

    Welcome. Jamming with another human is time well spent.

    Hey welcome to TB, nice to know you. Jamming is a good start to forming a band, lots of jam bands I’ve joined eventually started gigging. Keep well and best of luck.

  5. Thank you all for the warm welcome! This is the only pic I have at the moment (my rig stays at my bud's house). My P Bass, 3 Pro, 810 CL, Swollen Pickle, and Dunlop Bass Wah.

    I ended up trying a revolving door of basses to end up with my P. I tried a Jazz, Ibanez 5'er, a Peavey Millenium, and an LTD. The P just works so well.

  6. Sweet! If I had the 810, it would stay somewhere as well!!! Very Nice!!!!
    Im looking out for a P...have a couple of P/Js, but just doesn’t “feel” the same!
  7. It's definitely become my workhorse. I never thought I'd be able to get so many tones out of just one passive pickup. For our more relaxed songs I can just turn down the tone knob and go with a light touch. If I want to get heinous grind, just turn the tone knob back up to 10 and dig in hard on my right hand attack. It's been a game changer for me!
