Which aspect of Basses you have the most proficieny in, (Playing and Technique\Building and maintaining\Composing and theory\ Gear: For playing and technique, Its well and good to start with grueling practice sessions. But working for 3-6 hours on the techniques you need to practice has a better effect than working 12 hours on rehashing crap. Refresh and Learn; we are all students of music forever. For maintaining bass, I am very keen on working on my own basses. I have to have the strings slightly elevated for my finger style playing. When composing, I will ask the lead player what scale he or she will be using for a composition. This can help provide a solid sound to a composition.
Favourite famous bass player: John Myung
Famous bass player you think you most resemble in style or personality: Robert Trujillo

Location: Australia. Mate.
General information:
Age:
19
First name: Steven
Location: Sydney, Australia.
Been playing for: This is my 12th year.
Which instruments can you play, except Bass: Guitar, piano.

Bass Guitars
Current Bass\es:
A pretty decent P-Bass clone, Ibanez BTB200 and lately on the odd occasion a Squier VM Jazz 5 from a guitarist friend.
Favourite Bass you own: Depends on my mood.
Favourite Bass you've played: Fender American Deluxe Jazz. It was one of those ones that just resonated perfectly. Played some nice Foderas, Alembics and Ritters too, but I only liked them aesthetically rather than sonically.
Dream Bass: Custom made 5 String Sadowsky Jazz 5.

Amps
Current amp\s:
Ashdown ABM900, Ashdown Neo410, Ashdown Perfect 10 practice mini stack, Peavey Max158
Favourite amp you own: The ABM900 on the 4x10.
Favourite amp you've played on: Gigged on a SVT through an Ampeg 8x10 once. That was a good gig, tone-wise.
Dream amp: Tonally? SVT stack. Practically? A lightweight Aguilar or Markbass rig.

Effects
Do you use effects?, if so, which?:
Sparingly, I have a chorus, overdrive and wah. Compressor and octave on my amp head too.
Which effects do you own: Cheap Behringher versions of them all.
Favourite effect: Compressor in the studio. Octave live.


Genres
Genres you play:
You name it. Rock, motown, funk, punk, pop, r&B, hip hop, musical theatre. I do a little session work and I help record other people, so I've kinda picked up a lot of genres under my belt.
Genres you enjoy playing: Anything with a nice backbeat.
Favourite genre to play: Pop Rock is always a guilty pleasure. There's something to be said about the comfort of chugging root notes. Tis a nice break.
Bands you are in: On The Way (on hiatus). Also starting up a few projects with people I know. And session stuff where I'm just a hired gun.


Knowledge etc
Which aspect of Basses you have the most proficiency in, (Playing and Technique\Building and maintaining\Composing and theory\ Gear
: All of the above except for building and maintaining. I'm a gear whore, I've been lucky enough to learn under a great session player so I'm a stickler for technique and playing. Plus I've kinda been forced into knowing compositional skills and theory because it's easier and fast to communicate with people in a studio if you have these skills.
Favourite famous bass player: James Jamerson. No contest.
Famous bass player you think you most resemble in style or personality: I have no clue. I'd like to say Adam Blackstone, because he's the faceless man behind so much great work. But I'm a long way off.

Age:
18 (19 VERY soon)
First name: Stephen
Location: Ohio
Been playing for: 6 months
Which instruments can you play, except Bass: Mandolin (a little), Acoustic guitar (with some degree of accuracy)

Bass Guitars
Current Bass\es:
Fender Squier Jazz Bass; Affinity Series, Jay Turser JTB-550 Electric Bass Guitar (P/J), Fender Acoustic Bass (I donít even know, man, the model is literally ďBGĒ for Bass Guitar)
Favourite Bass you own: Probably the Squier
Favourite Bass you've played: I havenít really been around much but Kala U-basses seem cool, and I like Thunderbirds.
Dream Bass: Probably a desert gold Rickenbacker

Amps
Current amp\s:
Fender Rumble 15
Favourite amp you own: Only bass amp I have
Favourite amp you've played on: Iíll have to get back to you on this, whatever amp my church has sounds great.
Dream amp: Probably that amp at my church.

Effects
Do you use effects?, if so, which?:
I donít really use effects but I have a Digitech pedal thing.
Which effects do you own: Digitech pedal thing.
Favourite effect: I like messing around with Wahís and reverb to get a Daft Punk sound.


Genres
Genres you play:
The list of what I donít really play would probably be better. Iím not really into metal or dubstep, Iím more mellow, so nothing too fast or Ďnoisyí.
Genres you enjoy playing: Punk, alternative, jazz is cool, folk, indie, regular rock, I love post-rock, and techno sometimes, but not often.
Favourite genre to play: Whatever sounds good
Bands you are in: Just my churchís band


Knowledge etc
Which aspect of Basses you have the most proficiency in, (Playing and Technique\Building and maintaining\Composing and theory\ Gear:
I guess playing and technique. I try to learn a lot of music theory so that I understand exactly what Iím playing, but I really like looking at the mechanics of it, as opposed to composing. For instance, I havenít written much really, but I do like rewriting some songs that I find so that theyíre played in a different tuning with notes closer together or whatever, so that the playing is more fluid. I also really like the tech side because I like being able to modify things, and Iíve never been into cars or other things most guys my age are, so itís really nice that I finally found something that I can just catch a glimpse of on a music video and say ďOh yeah, that guyís playing a xxx bass, those have a good sound.Ē
Favourite famous bass player: As I said, I just started playing 6 months ago and I never really paid much attention to individual band members before then, so this is a bit hard. That being said, I like Mark Stoermer a lot, and try to play a lot of music by The Killers. Obviously Flea too, but I canít slap to save my life...At least not yet.
Famous bass player you think you most resemble in style or personality: Not knowing too many players, I donít really know too many personalities, but like I said above, my style is similar to Mark Stoermerís. At least I think.
