    DAMN, that's the fastest one of my posts has ever hit someone's signature!!!! (come to think of it it may be the only time, glad it was such an austere topic!!!! :D )

    And back on topic, I'm not sure I could be considered a player anymore, more of a closet wanker, my playing is perpetually on hold untill I can get back into some lessons.

    My first thought was not many, but then I realized how many people won't fill out a profile. That makes me wonder?
    But do you think they will answer and face ridicule and not being taken seriously?

    I haven't touched my bass for seven months now. So, I am going to count myself as someone who does not play the bass. I have a den full of Epifani cabs, EA amps, and a MIA jazz that never get touched.

    LajoieT summed me up as well "closet wanker" :) I just really noodle around on the bass when the mood hits me..could be a few hours, or a few months..who knows :) At some point I'd like to try and take lessons again or atleast find a drummer to jam with.

    I don't play bass in my band these days. But I do teach the bass player some bass lines, and I teach the drummer the drum parts.

    They are grown men, and should be able to do this themselves and it frustrates me to a degree to have few challenges presented by others.

    I did play bass for a number of years in an earlier version of the band and I enjoyed it much.

    Jeez, I feel guilty if I'm feeling bad and skip a day or 2. You're making me feel much better. :)

    I play at least every weekend at church. And once at practice. I need to get my amp set back up in the living room (my wife moved it) and practice again.

    Another closet wanker here, haven't been in a band in 20+ years and back then we were too busy getting high to play, now the excuse is work and mangled fingers
    (you probably guessed by my user name I am a mechanic ;) )
    still would like to et togerher with some similarly mediochre like minded old guys and jam though.
