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.

Famous bass player you think you most resemble in style or personality: Robert Trujillo
