Hi all. I am nearing 50 and sometimes get re inspired to play after seeing people. I don't consider myself a good bassist, but I have had players tell me I can play. To me all I have really done is noodled all my life and I have played in a few small local bands but that is it. I am not looking to be a rock star, but the idea of playing out beckons me. I have a Peavey Foundation V and I sound like poopie through an Ibanez practice amp. I haven't really practiced in close to 10 years other than picking it up here and there. I still have kids in the house so time is in short supply. The last time I got inspired I saw Opeth and joined a church band until I quit for personal reasons. I need a spark!
