I'm just a weird dude. My musical focus changes to often anymore. I'm in a great Americana band with great players and play nice plain bass straight thru to the amp. But inside I need to make some noise ,experiment with sound and get into a side project doing so. This started when I was younger digging effects,experimental music and noise really anything weird. I got a chance for a short time to play in a side band using effects and volume and loved it. So that bug is scratchin again. I am now hopelessly hooked on pedals, fuzz being my drug of choice and somehow I have three already. It has opened a new world on bass playing for me and I now I enjoy going into my studio and playing thru pedals for hours. Before this my basses sat and I played more guitar. So in a way it's great but it's costing me. Anyone here like this? I am also really digging all the YouTube videos like Fuzzwars and finding new sites on fuzz and pedals. This has also opened me up to a world of new bands and music which I enjoy allot. This is something I really needed for I had that flat ho-hum feeling about my music once again. Suddenly I feel awake.
