Hi! I'm a 50 year old guy but new to bass. I haven't played an instrument since I was in grade school. I've always considered learning to play bass, but put it off for the last 25 years. New to Texas as well, moving from my home state of California a few years ago, and never looked back. Now I have the time, a little free spending money to take up a hobby. I want to learn to play bass in order to understand the music I love a little more deeply, and to have a hobby that I can do away from my computers and my job which is also about computers and technology. Inspired by a visit from an old college buddy who took up bass about a year ago, I decided to give it a try. Will start my lessons next week! Love many forms of music, but my love is for Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendirx, Led Zeppelin, some harder/deeper rock like Black Sabbath, as well as anything blues based (especially Texas.... Stevie Ray Vaughn and Johnny Winter are on my playlists, always).
