    Hey everybody! I'm new here and I just wanted to say Hi! This forum seems to be really cool, so I hope I'll fit right in with my fellow bassists! I play progressive heavy metal, but I love all kinds of music especially jazz/fusion,technical/prog metal, and Classical. Basically anything that is different and requires talent-I'm there! I have been playing bass guitar for about 5 years and I played double bass before that for about 8 or 9. I am 22 years old ( I hate the post-21 "I'm getting old" blues! - Maybe I'll write a song about it! haha :D)

    Anyhow, My current rig is an Ampeg SVT3 Pro, Ampeg 810E cabinet and an Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 5, a Custom Carvin LB75, and (in the mail :) ) a Modulus Quantum 6. Good to meet everyone and all!
