Hey I've been playing String Bass for oh going on seven years. And about four years ago I picked up an electric. I love the bass I can't think of a better instrument. This fall I'll be attending The Crane School of Music majoring in Music Education. Besides the bass I've branched out to Cello, Viola, and Violin. On top of that I played tuba for a number of years but I won't discuss that here. I currently work on a technique with a mix of Samandle(sp?) and Rabath. I've fooled around with a German bow but can't make it work for me so I'm a French player. I've played in string and full orchestras along with Jazz bands rock bands and string quartets. And I think that's all for me now.
