I'm Vin, and I'm crap at bass!

Live in Bristol, originally from Stoke. Into punk/hardcore/post-punk/post-hardcore and 90s alt rock.

Technically been playing 20 years, but for most of that I didn't have a bass, so I don't think it counts. I only picked it up again a year or so ago. Hoping to do a band when it's safe. Never learned to play anyway. Just like making noise.

I like short scale basses, cuz my back and my fingers are knackered. My rig consists of a Fender Mustang (PJ), a Portaflex, a Fender Rumble 210 Cab, and a minimalist pedalboard with an emphasis on grindy, nasty grit.

Nice to be here, to be here...

Welcome aboard!   :crigon_04:

There isn't a sub forum called "BassCrap", but if there was there would be a lot of us on there!  
But it's fun improving, however slowly.

Good at intros, however.

Welcome. You will find any number of self-deprecating bassists here who you somehow know could blow the back wall out. I'm not one of them -- I really do aspire to mediocrity.

That would be a good sub forum. We could post about how we don't have any gear 😁

Welcome Vin. There are worse things in life than being crap on bass - lucky for me 🙂
