Another new member; thanks to you all that have kept this forum going. I've played music professionally for over thirty years in the SF CA Bay Area. I have been meaning to join this list for awhile. I also teach bass; bluegrass, western-swing, blues, rockabilly, or basic jazz on acoustic or electric bass. I'm teaching out of the Fifth String music store in Berkeley, and the Alameda School of Music in Alameda. Peace.
