Well, I'm just an older dude playing lefty bass after having failed learning the electric guitar many decades ago. Currently, I'm working down in New Zealand.
Working with my guitarist to start an Indie Band called Rooster (tentative). Perhaps I'm not the greatest bass player in the world (that would be Flea!), but I'm without a doubt committed to learning this craft as best I can. My bass coach is Scott Sutherland. He's done a pretty good job building up my skills slowly. You can see his profile at: www.probasslessons.com.
