marketing myself as a bass player: website suggestions?

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by AndreyR, Jan 5, 2013.


  1. The headline says it, I'm designing a website for myself (funny that a lot of bass player have web development skills, but anyway) any suggestions? Are the top colors too "colorful" for someone trying to be a professional?

  2. I dunno - the main pic (you in a suit just standing with the bass) .... I wouldn't go with that one. I would definitely put an action shot as the most focal picture on the page.

    I'm also not crazy about the photo to the left. Please don't take this the wrong way, but it makes you look a little "schlubby." The way the bass is pulling your jacket down and the fact that the sleeve looks too long...I dunno. Somehow it doesn't give me the vibe that "this guy is a real pro."

    You may want something along the lines of these:

  5. Thanks! How about now?
    You see, I found a code that lets me randomize pictures on reload. So that was just one of a bunch of pictures of me playing the bass.
