Howdy! I'm new here. I discovered this place sometime this summer and have been meaning to join. You guys/girls are amazing! Your basses and amps make my head want to explode! I can't say I'll be a dedicated member here, on account of I'm a percussionist mainly. I don't even really consider myself a bassist. I did learn "I Got Rhythm" by George Gershwin on bass recently for Jazz Band. Well, sort of learn it. I know basically the choruses. I may focus on bass for a while because I'm not really improving and I don't have access to teachers in my stupid little town. Some bands that I currently listen to are (there are many more): U2 Coldplay Smashing Pumpkins The Cure Rush Dream Theater Joe Satriani Dream Theater Everclear Nirvana Foo Fighters The Misfits Radiohead The Mars Volta Oasis Zwan Led Zeppelin Etc. Remember, that is what I am currently listening to. I may add more to this thread later. I hope I have a good time here.
