hell, i'm not sure what I play anymore - half bass-player, half electic, half acoustic... I travel all the time for business, so I don't play in a band or anything. I started as a bass player, but got sick of lugging an amp everywhere after I started travelling, so picked up the acoustic (6-string). Taught myself some chords and theory, and now I mostly play acoustic, cuz i like the richer sound than playing bass by myself.
When I play bass, I play an ovation acoustic 5-string bass - wonderful guitar!!! I also have a Jamaha fretless somewhere - last I saw it was somewhere in southern NH. I left it in the states so I have something to play when I visit.
When I had a jam buddy, I only really had a chance to play blues and jimi'esque type base lines - a little boring to play, but trippy and hypnotic as hell bass lines. Great after a good smoke... At that time the only dead songs i knew was fire on the mountain and love light. We also used to play Dear Mr. Fantasy.
I like the idea of posting some dead bass tracks for others to listen to/jam over/whatever. I'll see if I can put something together with the equipment i have available to me here in Turkey.
