Hello everyone! I joined the forum earlier today, however I just activated my account a few moments ago. (I couldn't access my e-mail at work) Anyway I hope my title and signature doesn't get me booted from the forum cause this seems like a good place for me to come and read about the main love in my life. Bass. I've owned my bass for about four (4) years now, however I just became a hardcore bassist for less then a year now. I started learning a few covers like Jimi Hendrix - Fire At The Drive-In - Quarantined (mainly the intro) I also have a few others under my belt, that sadly I haven't played in awhile but they would be Modest Mouse - Tiny Cities Made of Ashes and Float On The Who - Boris The Spider A Static Lullaby - The Shooting Star That Destroyed Us All Senses Fail - Martini Kiss The last two I had to learn for my band (Out of Reach) that I am currently the bassist for. If anyone is interested you can find us here www.myspace.com/outofreachpa or outofreachband.googlepages.com Well, anyway I am happy to be a member of this forum and hope that it will help me in becoming a better bassist and learning my instrument, maybe a few techniques too. I really need to start practicing slapping.
