Hey TalkBass'rs On the last day of 2014 I was reflecting on the year past and the years past in my "bass world" and I am smiling ear to ear as 2015 is ready to roll in. After many years of just really goofing around with my bass and my headphones, my wife (in her thoughtful and wise way) enrolled me in the League of Rock. A program that groups you with like minded musicians and mentors you for 10 weeks before getting to perform at a real rock club live! It was the inspiration, motivation and totally instilled the confidence in myself that I had the ability to play with a band. At the ripe young age of 44, I now find myself in a band getting ready for our first gig, a 10 song set at a birthday party, but a complete set nonetheless. There is nothing like the feeling of locking in with a band and riding the music. Happy New Year!
