I just joined the other day. I'm a 38 year old guy from Australia. I've recently picked up my bass and guitar again after a long break from both. Out of nowhere I just felt like playing bass along with my favourite songs, and I'm enjoying how much I get to feel the bass through the strings and the body as I play. A couple of years ago me and my therapist found that I'm on the autism spectrum, and when I told her recently that I've been playing bass again she was encouraging. I think the sensory element of playing bass is good for me - it's been soothing. So far I've been playing along to some Metallica, Type O Negative, Flyleaf, and one or two Devin Townsend songs. I'd like to do more of these, but I feel like now that I'm older I want to explore so many more genres of music. I especially want to play more prog rock like Scale the Summit, eventually. I used to spend a lot of time on guitar forums before I stopped playing. I always found them informative and fun. So I'm sure I'll enjoy being here too, and learning from the discussions.
