Title: Another from the UK.
Post by: tom1946 on November 08, 2011, 12:16:33 AM
Good morning everyone, (or good evening as appropriate :)

I too found this site by accident and had to join. I'm Tom Anderson and I'm from Guisborough which is about 8 miles east of Middlesbrough.
My wife and I worship at Guisborough Methodist Church, my wife plays 12 string and I murder the bass. Our group has keyboards, drums, 6 & 12 string guitars, and several singers.

I'm now 65 going on 30 and retired, I played 12 string since the 1960's when I had a Seekers type group but the arthritis in my hands has got bad in the last 18 months so I've had to take up bass instead. Our last bassist left about that time sooo, isn't God's timing perfect? I do wish he had given me a bit more time to learn it than 2 weeks! But by his grace I've managed to fit in quite well but I'm no Billy Sheehan  ;D

Anyway Bless you all and thanks for the site.

Tom.

Welcome - I guess finger stretching on a 34" bass neck beats cramped chords on a 12 string!

If you were a "New Seekers" sorta guy, I guess you sing too! 

Enjoy the posts

Thanks Chris, yes I still sing a bit, but these days I sound more like a frog on a muggy day :)

Tom.

Hello & Welcome Tom!

Yes, the Lord does get us to the right place at the right time doing the right thing!  Amazing!

As a seasoned guitarist, what do you find most interesting about playing bass?

Keep on Prasin'!
