Hi y’all

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Mark here introducing myself.

I last played with anything like regularity back in the late eighties. R&B, pub rock, some ska influenced stuff. All for fun and nothing very serious. I hung up my bass when kids and family and work took over.

i started out with a short scale Burns bass dating back to the early sixties. It was a dreadful thing with very high action. Scarey what it would be worth now. Sold it and bought a Shergold Marathon in 79 which had a great neck if a bit neck heavy.

Now I am on the verge of retiring and the nest is almost empty I am thinking of having another go.

i was always a bit of a trial and error bluffer. Maybe this time I’ll try and learn to play properly.

Welcome Mark.

For a hat trick, how about getting a Gillett or a Chowny bass and staying with a British brand?  I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how things have improved.
