Hey Kris - welcome aboard!

I understand you're a founding member of BB. I must say, I really enjoy your playing. The fretless in My Spirit Will Speak is just sublime. And of course, the Taurus - the essential Prog ingredient wink

Re: Kris / Bassplayer in BB

Thank´s Steve. I actually had the fretless bass as my main bassguitar when i started with BB but the fretted bass has much more edge when it comes to heavier songs. Maby i will try to use the fretless more on the next album.

Yes, I was one of the founding members. Linus, Daniel & I started as a trio for a few month I think. Linus had allready composed a whole epos, "One year alone" & it all starded from there.

Re: Kris / Bassplayer in BB

Hello Kris. It's good to meet you as well (even if it is only through cyberspace). wink

I really enjoy your bass work on Stories and Believers & Deceivers. I was listening to B&D just today actually, on my way home from work.

So you use the fretted bass mostly? I didn't realize there is sound difference between fretted and fretless bass guitars, but that does make sense. I've not heard My Spirit Will Speak, but I just got hold of a copy of BB's first album today, so I'll soon be listening to the whole thing. I can't believe I found a copy so long after it came out. I thought I'd never find one.
