About iplaydabass
Hey, my name is Freddy. I play the bass, as well as many other musical instruments. I grew up in the greater Los Angeles area, and still reside there. My dad was the drummer for the band Oingo Boingo, so you can really guess as to what kind of music I was raised on. However I play mainly the classical Double Bass with the YMF Debut Orchestra and study at Cal State Northridge. I welcome you to ask me anything, I really donТt care what. Just one rule thoughЕ.no Nickelback. Oh, and I own a horse. (not really)
