Where once I lurked, now I post. I'm a college student at UC Santa Barbara, majoring in Film, and have been playing bass now for nearly a year. Played in my buddy's garage rock band for a couple months before I moved. They're a two-man show now (just drums and guitar -- whatever) but I still see them and we'll jam every once in a while. I play a cheapo Washburn bass with flatwounds but I'm looking to upgrade soon to either a) an Epiphone Thunderbird, b) an Epiphone EB-3, or c) Fender Jaguar bass. In my dreams. I've never taken a guitar lesson in my life. Everything I know about bass and scales and notes I've learned from the internet. Hurray. And that's about it. See y'all around.
