Hi, I'm Missy, I have been lurking here for a while and thought i should finally say hi.
I started playing bass about 7 months ago. I guess I am picking it up pretty quickly, was asked to join a band with some friends who have been playing for well over 20 years. We have a gig playing a set for a Ramones tribute show that has been going on for 10 years now. We pretty much have our set down.
I have also been teaching a friend of mine to play, which helps me solidify what i am learning.
I have also been learning the notes instead of just the fret numbers (it is easier, to me, that way. I picked up a fretboard map that I put on my bass, so it was passive learning, but it stuck with me).
I have 2 basses that I play-the one I love and play the most is a Rogue violin bass, the other is a semick s101 standard jazz bass, that I like to throw my effects pedal on it and play around with the sound on that one (it doesn't sound right on the Rogue, as it has a beautiful tone all on its own, so I dont like to mess with it).
I never know what to say in these things, so I guess that is all for now.
