I haven't posted here in a long time. I must admit, I didn't leave on good terms - I have some strong opinions and sometimes lack tact, and have a bizarre sense of humor that some don't get and take offense. But still, it's a fun little spot on the net, and is really the only decent resource for bassists on the web. There are good people here, and some good information if you know how to look for it. That said, I submit an apology to any of you I may have offended in the past - it was never intentional. Also, I'd like to apologize to any mods for the ball busting you may have received from me, publicly or otherwise. As a bassist, working musician, and tech, it's important for me to not burn any bridges, even if they're only the virtual kind. That said, I plan on posting here again, albeit in a limited capacity. I won't be bothering with anything outside of music, and probably not anything outside of the tools of making music. No OT, no Lobby... nothing that could potentially get my digital mouth in trouble. So... what have I been up to? I've been playing in a kick ass band (produced by Keith Harris of The Black Eyed Peas) called Prototype (myspace.com/weareprototype), touring a bit, trying to put together a band, and working on my next solo record. I sold off the Strangeberger™, and are playing Ovation Magnums exclusively (for now). I also landed a job as the Shop Manager for SF Guitarworks (sfguitarworks.com), which is a top tier guitar repair facility in San Francisco. I'm still building and modding microtonal instruments for Burnt Infant, my pedalboard is starting to grow again, and I finally found a Mesa/Boogie Powerhouse Jr. RoadReady cab after looking for close to 10 years. Life is pretty damn good at the moment. And that's about it. Hi guys.
