Ben, I saw in the Fiddle post that you have been talking to your Bass player about giving lessons. I'd definitely be interested if and when you can make it happen. First let me say that your bass player, on the Close to Home album, is really, really good and I'm sure he could share a lot.
I have been playing electric bass off and on for over 30 years starting with rock and moving to country. I just got formally introduced to Bluegrass here about 6 months ago when some friends at Church needed a bass for a Bluegrass tune they wanted to play. I borrowed a friend's upright and got hooked. Since then, I picked up a really cool Kay 62 M-1 in very good condition about two months ago and have been thumping away.
Thanks for the web site and all the work you put into it. I'll continue to use my Gold Pick status to improve my guitar skills and maybe some day you will have a bass section.
