    Hi All! Just joined so have to still complete profile but wanted to introduce my self. I'm 37 and in Buffalo NY. Played guitar for years but not seriously. About 3 years ago I erased everything I knew and started over trying to actually learn how to play as opposed to just belting out power chords.

    A few months ago an old friend asked me to try out playing bass in a Grateful Dead cover band he had started. I did buy a bass earlier in the year but never touched it. I finally decided to give it a try and to my surprise it seems to be working so I plan to invest time/$ into it.

    So I am pretty much a rookie and quite ignorant to playing bass and bass rigs except for what converts over from 6 string guitar.

    So hoping I can find a friendly guide on the way and maybe be able to give back some help eventually.
