Upright bass, playing swing, blues and jazz.

Played orchestra in college, toured with a cover band after graduation. I got a chance to move to SoCal with a "day job" so I took it in mid 80's. I quit playing all together for a couple years after the move.

Bought an upright in '90 and have been playing pretty steady since on local gigs. Lately it's about 1-2 gigs/week when I'm not traveling for work. Played with 5 groups so far this year. (I'm a bit of a 'ho)

I admire you guys who completed your music degrees and/or do music full time. I just didn't have the level of commitment necessary for it.
Hey, knock that shvt off. We're drinkin' here.

I was a high school band director in another life so I can play pretty much any wind or brass instrument, but my main axe is the Tuba.

Still trying to get proficient on the bagpipes though. Pretty cocky a couple years ago, "just give me the pipes and a fingering chart and I'll have them down in 2 weeks..." Famous last words. They're still kicking my butt.

I played guitar in several rock and blues bands when I was younger. Now I play 5-string banjo, mandolin and bass fiddle, just well enough to have fun.
When I die, I want my remains to be scattered all over Disney World. Also, I don't want to be cremated!

Electric bass player here. Funky grooves fill my pocket. Also play a little piano and some six-string if it's acoustic. Played in some bands, but these days it is all about the day job.

been playing guitar on and off for 25 years, more off but started getting back into it about 2 years ago. Going to start recording some originals with a former co worker soon. Had a metal and a punk band back in the 80's.
