    Hey, this is my second post and I'm new so please be nice to me and accept me into your little clan. OK, little about me, I'm 17, been playin bass for nearly 2 years and played guitar for a bit before that, I play an Ibanez Soundgear SR300DX through a Polytone Mini Brute ||| and I'm currently in a band in the studio recording a CD.
    I'm into all kinds of music from Jazz to Punk to 80's metal to anything non nu-metal or this whole cheeze "punk" thing that's goin on really.
    As far as bass playin goes I'm a big lover of bassists such as MUSE's Chris Wolstenholme, Rancid's Matt Freeman (although he hasn't really influenced me much, it's not the kinda thing I play I really respect his playin), Iron Maiden's Steve Harris I'm currently loving Slade's Jim Lea. I'm not shure who I'd call my biggest influence but I must say I'm a lover or a soft bottom heavy tone with no twang and usually play finger style. I can't slap to save my life and I'm clumsy as hell with a plec but I can do it, don't like it though. As for actually bands/artists I like, always have been and always will be a huge Michael Jackson fan (even though the last two albums were awfull), I'm listening to slade a lot at the mo (but it's that time of year), love stuff like Feeder, love Oasis, basically I'm all for most things british bar Steriophonics, recently started getting into Soundgarden, dunno, I'm babbling on now, anyways, hi, I'm new and I won't always post this long,
    Al

    Hah, I dig the "Please Accept Me" Subject. You sound like a cool cat, you'll fit in fine. A varied choice in music is always good not only as a bass player, but on talkbass, people appreciate it as aposed to the close-minded people who only listen to a certain style. Have fun, you'll learn a lot from this site, well, I did at least.

    Ohhhhh no you don't. There's the small matter of sending each supporting memeber a crisp unmarked $100 bill.

    Welcome to Talkbass.

    A little about me...

    I like unicorns, rainbows, picnics, and long walks on the beach.

    And cheese. I really like cheese.

    I'm Woodchuck, a bass playing rodent. I'm just trying to put my past as a porn actor behind me and move on. Whatever you do, DO NOT go rent "Anus and Andy" or "Malcolm XXX"!
    Why? No reason, just don't.

    Oh yeah, I'm Jeff. I won't be around here too long if I don't get away from this one particullarly adictive political thread I'm involved in. I think I'm making people mad and they're gonna ban me.

    BTW what are your views on smoking????? just kidding:D
