Hi from Ireland!

Tell us a little bit about you...

Hi from Ireland!

Postby fretlessboy on Fri Aug 14, 2009 1:01 pm

Hello lads and lassies

I'm a fan of Japan since 1980 or thereabouts. I'm a professional musician and have just of late taken up fretless bass, having always played fretted.

if anyone's interested, i've got a couple of Japan bass lines up on youtube, showing how they're played.


Nice to be here

Sometimes you think you're the only one in the world who still loves this music...

:) :)

If you're not on Pioneers I don't think you'll get what I mean :wink:

If you are, just look at some of the posts about playing fretless bass :wink:
