howdy everybody! new to the forum but not new to bass. i've been playing for about 7 years now. never took any lessons or anything, just picked it up and started noodling around with it and here i am! i play in a heavy metal/hardcore band called tonight we feed. i'm looking forward to meeting you all and learning some cool stuff from you folks. here's a small list of my gear real quick, in case anybody was wondering. Czech made Dean Edge. Limited trans red Dean ML. And coming soon, a swamp ash Dean Sledgehammer 5 string. yeah, i'm a Dean fan.
