I'm an averagely skilled bassist, and a slightly worse guitarist, I've been playing bass seriously for 1 and a half years now, I've had it for a bit longer, and I've been playing guitar for about 6 months, I also know how to play drums and percussion (Albeit not extremely well as I have nothing to practice on). I play in two local bands, but they are really just the same band with one member taken out. We have played a few gigs, but mostly just little side things like performing at a Brighton Disco. The most viewed gig we've played would probably be the Community Performance 'The Gig in The Gardens' (Tons of local bands just get up and perform for passers-by) which was fun. I also play in a local Stage Band (Jazz Band) and Concert band as well as an acoustic Guitar Ensemble. In practically all of these I am playing Bass. Stage Band and a friend who plays bass helped me develop my slap technique, my friend said "Use it for anything, even Master of Puppets" and then he showed Master of Puppets slapped....and then I showed him about 5 months later. I was the only one truly interested in Metal in my band, so I taught both our guitarists some Metallica stuff (Master of Puppets, Seek and Destroy, For Whom the Bell Tolls, etc.), they still play mostly rock, but we may very well be performing some Metallica soon, if not I will make a cover band with some of the metal fans, and it'll all be good.
Anyway, that's me, thanks for listening...
