Man about internet town

Post by Mark » Thu Oct 14, 2010 10:55 am

Hi all,

I'm an early twenties guy that recently picked up the bass again. I grew up playing bass from age ten, and I played upright in a couple of gigging jazz combos, bass guitar in a few rock bands and I taught bass guitar to youngins. For the last four or five years however I've been indulging my dark side with guitar playing, keyboard playing and singing. I've just returned to the bass guitar in the last month or two, and I've got me a bass and a bass amp again. It's awesome to play bass after so many years. I remember how much I love just sitting in my room playing along to records or writing basslines. Monophonic instruments are fantastic. (Well, the way I play it it's monophonic :) )

I terrorize people over at the NZGuitars forum as thehenderson. There are some great threads here with good info. I think I have quite different tastes in bass gear and music to a lot of you but it's nice to see a community like this. Hey tim what's up.
