I’ve been playing bass for ‘real’ since about 1989 – noodled around a bit before then, but nothing serious. My father was a great guitar player and played in the Hartford area for 50+ years. I wish I had his talent! For whatever reason, I have always loved the bass – so I guess I’m playing what I am supposed to be playing!
