    I've seen the odd location based threads here, so was wondering where all the British bass players are. :)

    British player here. OK, British heritage. Ten, maybe twelve generations ago one or more of my ancestors probably stole your ancestors' horse or something. So, to your question of where all the British bass players are, this one is in Chicago.

    Ah, that's a pretty good reason! How are you liking it over there?

    You'd better give that horse back!
