Hi Paulie and howdy Auri fellow Adelaideian.
60/40? Well from past experiences 60 usually stood for the average age of the audience on a wrongly booked night and 40 was how much you got paid in dollars after sending home the 60+ age group crowd at 9pm cause it was 30 minutes past their bedtime. Best thing about those gigs were that if we were too loud all the audience had to do was turn down their hearing aids. No complaints.

Hello from Connecticut, USA
I've been curious about the music scene in Australia and New Zealand for a while, having been exposed to players and builders on TalkBass.
I am 65 y.o., and BG was my first instrument at 11, but had a long hiatus until about 5 years ago. I had been playing guitar, Hammond organ and Uilleann pipes in the interim.
Current gig is with a "classic rock" band, but we do modern covers and some originals, too. I have been neglecting the jazz duo with a guitarist, and hope to get back to it when I finish my current grad school certificate.
I have been playing a variety of parts-built J and P basses, and also a cheap Spector that I put an Aguilar pre-amp in, an SX 5 Jazz fretless. Rig is either an Ampeg BA-112, or a rack driving two Bag End S15s.
A few pedals, too, mainly for funk.
I'm looking forward to learning and contributing.

Hi Andy's my name, I am yet another outclassed guitarist convert. Have to say though I'm hooked! Who'd have know there was so much focussed goodness down under 1Khtz! Been playing guitar for 20 years and have never left the house with it, been playing Basss for a short matter or months and have already got a regular jam thing happening playing Hendrix covers and other funky rock stuff. Whats now to like? Be going straight the the reviews and recommendations for a new head to match my new 4 x 10 cab. Thanks for having me.

Hey,
I’m Neil from Ryanston Australia. I am learning to play bass and love it. I tried playing guitar but my fingers seem to fat and I find the bass easier. I play the drums and started playing when I was 61yo. I have always loved music but I think I have started a bit late.
