Hi all, it's good to finally join this site after lurking plenty over the years. I've been playing bass for five years now (I'm 18 currently) and am joining this site because lately I've decided to become more serious about my practicing and songwriting. Without going into my life story: I play primarily six-string bass, I took (and exceeded my expectations on) last year's AP Music Theory exam, used to be bigger on metal (my most prominent band so far was actually a tech-death outfit) and lately I've been finding myself big on funk and any other music with strong emphasis on bass. Just trying to take things to the next level, know what I'm saying? Nice to meet you all.
