    Like many others I've been lurking for years, reading threads that Google searches have brought to my attention. I figured it was time I formally joined!

    I started on the double bass in elementary school and picked up bass guitar in high school. I still play both, as well as acoustic guitar and various mandolin-family instruments. In college I began to explore various pedal effects. My RAT died the other week so I've just purchased a Fuzzrocious Cat King. The forum here put it and a few other options on my radar. There is such a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw on here!

    By the way, what kind of music do you like/play?

    What kind of scene are you in?

    Thanks!
    I like pretty much any music where I can hear the technical command of the musicians. I listen to all sorts of stuff: classical, rock, alternative, metal, traditional Irish, progressive bluegrass...
    At the moment I play classical music in an orchestra and CCM at church. I've done the band thing (original alternative rock and some cover stuff) and I'll do so again at some point. In college I played some jazz, but that was more an exploratory experience: there's only so much time, and it's hard to be highly skilled at a variety of genres, you know?
     
  5. Correct, enjoy the styles YOU Like. Country and Praise fills the time I can give to music.

    Welcome.
