    I'm having way too much fun on this site. So much so that I’ve been happily posting away, when I suddenly remembered that I haven’t introduced myself!
    Soo without further adoooo here goes (AA voice on) Hi. My name is Doug I’m 40 years old.. An I’m a bass player? (AA voice off) I have been at it since I was about 17. I'm active duty Air Force stationed at Nellis AFB Nevada (Las Vegas). I have a wonderful wife, teenage daughter and a dog that thinks he's human:rolleyes: My gear consist of an Ibanez SR406 six string, SR400 four string, and my main ax is Jackson C5A five string, Gk1001RB head, homemade 115, Avatar B410 and Boss GT-6B. I play for the Nellis Chapel on Sunday mornings and gig around town with my band Sugarkanetrain. Well that’s about it for me. Sorry about the delay. Any other semi-newbies out there?

    Welcome to TB! This place is indeed quite an abode for the working/casual bassist.

    Don't worry about posting in the wrong area, as long as you don't do it on purpose it's ok. :D

    Cool:) I was paroled from Korea in 98. There is quite a lot of talented musicians in the AF these days;) and not just in the AF bands either. The ones that are in the bands though are absolutely top notch. Any of you ever been to the Vegas area?

    Hola, Doug. Looks like we have a lot in common (check my profile). Pacman is the talented one though. ;)

    I was TDY to Nellis last month for a coupla weeks, but never made it to the chapel (go figure). Been in Korea for about seven years total, with no parole in sight. I've been offered a job at Nellis for next year, but I doubt it will pan out. The folks here have their hooks in me pretty deep. :)

    Anyway, welcome aboard. I'll see ya around.

    Hey Doug! Good to have ya here!

    Another active-duty AF dog here is ChaosGWAR, I believe he's in the San Francisco/Oakland area (can't remember which base), he's a C5 crew chief (I think?).

    I wasn't in the AF directly, but my dad was a C-130 jockey for the first 6 years of my life, so I'm an AF brat - they shuttled me all over the world back in the day (we won't discuss when "the day" was, hmmkay?).


    neptoon (the video is coming, trust me! things have been nuts here! :p) & JT, y'all really need to quit flirting in public like that - get a room, willya?!?!? :eek:
