I joined about a month ago, and am enjoying this place immensely. I just turned 60 but have played bass since I was 14. Grew up with the British Invasion and went thru numerous garage bands, then a few bar bands in Chicago, started getting into jazz and got a music degree from University of Miami where I played in several jazz ensembles (even though my major was music engineering.) Had a couple of great bass teachers there. Played in some blues bands for a while, but other than a few jams, haven't played out for the last 25 years. Reeducation (computer science,) Jobs, kids, mortgages, elder care etc. Sensing that the end of the rat race may be near, I've been dusting off my old (now, vintage!) basses and shaking the cobwebs out of my ancient fingers. Everything still seems to work and am looking forward to a more musical future. To the people running this place, Thank You! It's an amazing resource..
