Hi talk bass community. I'm a small fingered sweaty palmed player of a thunderbird copy, only just started. I accompany a pretty good alto sax player stroke musician (of the trad jazz inclination) he's adopted me somewhat. Bass is a lot of fun and a great way to get into any music. I guess I'm at the "pareto" stage 20percent of my problems are keeping me down. Some of which are really basic and I will share them and in turn will pass on anything I can.
