I am a 34 year old man. I live now in Spain. I first bought my first bass guitar when I was 23 years old and I have been playing on and off since then, the first 3 years I played with NO amplifier which made my fingers look like sausages. When I was 29 I decided that I could not carry on playing the bass guitar like an electric guitar so I decided to buy one this time I did buy the amplifier!!. I first practiced 3 hours a day sometimes more and then on and off as I have to pay my bills with my no way!! hobby job.
I dont play live. I am too scared.
At the moment I only play in front of my cat (Mary) and my girlfriend thinks I am leading her to a slow death through my music.
Apart from all this, I would like one day to have the guts to play in front of an audience. Yes, lets break the ice.
I really like jazz fusion, although not always my music comes out that way. I have many influences of many jazz fusion guitar players. This ranges from the most comercialised ones like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and John Petrucci, for example, to Greg Howe, Frank Gambale, Guthrie Govan, Allan Holdsworth and so many more that I cant even count them with my own fingers. If I ever win the lottery before my fingers get osteoarthritis due to old age I could have a strong chance of achiving something close to the men just mention above. Just a joke.
