Favorite bassists :
dont know. im dont really play bass so i never really got into bassists. but if i were to have some, i guess geddy lee, cliff burton,
im going to starta by saying this: i used to believe in god and all that other crap. however i learned fairly quickly, about 10 months or so) that there is no such thing. i sold all my guitars and shit to go to california, not to make it big in music but because i though that god wanted me to come out here fo rsome damn reason. well, he fooled me so i decided that religion could kliss my white honky ass. so i havent really played much. yes ive played. i also broke my wrist when i got hit by some punk ass bitch driver. one thing ive learned in these last 10 months is that you cant trust ANYONE!! dont let people fool you into believing in something called god.
now onto my guitar playing "about me"
Ive been playing guitar for roughly 20 years. i could subtract about 5 for the times ive not played. I had wanted to learn the guitar before i ever heard Master of Puppets from metallica but in 86 when that came out.....man i knew i would be playing. So i got my first real six string in 88 and never looked back. Something about the guitar just draws me to it. like its a piece or artwork or something.
But its more about what you can convey through what you play that is more important to me. Music rules from within.
