I play standard alternative/rock music on the electric (I only started about a year ago) and classical (and occasionally some alt rock as well) on the cello. I don't play in a band regularly, but do some recording on my own for fun. When did you start playing? That coffin bass is fabulous, btw.Originally Posted by nowoutonvinyl
no ive never played an electric. ive never played anything before actually. i'm learning to play rockabilly slap bass right now. what styles do you play?
Saw them open for Horton Heat one time... or maybe it was Social D, can't remember... they're the ones where he uses an old gas tank for a bass, right? lolOriginally Posted by WonderRandy

I'd much rather do that than try to scrape together for six months to buy one. Ha, that's funny about the bluegrass comment. I was playing banjo in a bluegrass jam in East Texas once when I was 16 or 17, and this photographer was there taking pictures. He asked me my name, where I was from, and some questions about me playing music. I just figured he liked taking pictures in his spare time.
Well fast forward like six months later and my grandma called me all excited because she'd just gotten her subscription of Texas Highways magazine and there were like 4 pictures of me in it! It was all about how bluegrass is catching on with the "young, hip" crowd. Hahahaha.
I get little funny looks and stuff like that all the time. I guess people don't see piercings, tattoos, pink hair and think, "Oh she must like Dixieland jazz and old time country".
Hey thanks for the compliments on my band guys!
