    Hi all,

    I have been on the forums for a while now but wanted to throw out a formal greeting.

    I'm 49 and have been playing pro since 1978. Spent time in Boston during the 80's and have played every kind of gig imaginable - theater, jingles, hired gun studio work and tons and tons of rock-, jazz-, blues- touring and house gig stuff.

    After relocating back to Minneapolis I spent the 90's and early 00's immersed in the local scene.

    Moved to northern MN about a decade ago and quit playing altogether. After a couple years, a buddy found out about my past, now I find myself in 4 bands and looking for recording opportunities - just like when I was in my 20s.

    Anyhoo - just throwing out a warm hello to the forums.

    Any other rural Minnesota bassists out there?

    Well I just decided to learn how to play at age 51 so I'm a newbie. Where up north are you I'm near St. Cloud in the sticks.

    Hi Dave,

    I am near Outing. Equidistant between Brainerd and Grand Rapids...

    Good luck - I used to teach a while back so if you're looking for info on technique or gear, PM me sometime, I would be happy to help if I can.
