Basses Covered


Mark Heath here. Glad to be a part of a great website involving all you great players out there. I've recently started playing again after a nine year layoff. I'm enjoying myself much more this time around. I do remember hearing Trevor Horn playing Fretless on "Run Through The Light" from the Yes/Drama record and thinking that's what I want to do. I've since grown to listen to just about ever player out there imaginable, just for the love of it and the inspiration to play better.
