Hi, I am a new member, and a new bass player. I started studying electric ten months ago and upright one month ago. I call them my mid-life crisis fun toys, and they are my favorite things to do in the world. I never thought tiny little me could ever play bass, but am discovering that I was wrong. I tried both years ago, but it never felt right. Last summer I had the pleasure of taking a guitar teaching methods class, and got another chance at playing an electric bass. This time, it felt good, and I could do it, so to store I went as soon as possible. For a living, I teach music in a public school to every grade and sing in an opera chorus. As a child, I studied violin through out elementary and high school, but never really played in tune to my satisfaction, so a voice major I became. I play piano and guitar for my work everyday, but they are just not a bass! I am here because I can use all the good help I can get! I have a lot of years to make up for! This looks like a good site.
