Newbie Alert!

Post by Fenderfan » Wed Oct 27, 2010 6:01 pm

Hey all, I've visited the site a few times, and recently spent a bit of time going through some posts. Pretty impressed by some of the info advice available here so thought I gotta join up to this! Hopefully in your collective minds lay all the answers and solutions to my queries/problems! (No pressure) :D I've played guitar for about 7 years or so and always had the love of bass guitar slowly making its way forward. Been focusing on just bass for the last 4 years or so, and am always lookin at improving tone, experimenting with sounds and building up my arsenal. I play in a band with some mates playing mainly rock/heavy rock originals on my Fender (us) Precision and also have a Squier Jazz. Who knows, after a while I may even be able to assist others in their neverending quest for the ultimate in tone!

Can't actually tell how many members are female. Only a couple have ever placed posts from memory.
A lot of people look at this site but never post anything.

if you flatten the 6th on that dom(b9) chord Rog it'll resolve the harmonic minor before Harry goes to jail for criticizing Cltutenburg for the worse goal awarded in some time even considering the crimes that go unpunished at OT year after year after year...
