- About me:
I am 51 years old and am a nurse by profession. I amLearning to play bass for about 6 years now. I have learned through a lot of my own practice and just showing up at jams as much as I can and I hvave a teacher and I attended Dweezilla for 4 years. I can actually read music. When I was young (age 5 - about 24) I played a trombone and a baritone in school, the marching\concert\and jazz band. I was also in a drum and bugle corp. I was playing in a college orchestra by the time I was 12. I sorta gave up on playing music when I was in my 20's and went in other artistic directions, but I always wanted to learn bass. I guess this was such a topic of conversation that one friend eventually bought me a bass and told me to shut up and play...or just shut up. I fell in love with it quickly.
