Hi!

I've been lurking around here for past couple nights and also posted some tracks and I would like to share my gratitude of finding such a great community.

I am a hobby bass player in my late 20's, from Latvia, with a normal, hard-to-pronounce Latvian name Viesturs. :) I've been playing bass and other instruments infrequently for past ~15 years, have been in several bands and I am in one right now, music has always been my passion, but I've never taken it too seriously career-wise.
So I've been living in Berlin, Germany for past years, worked the normal day-jobs, have made myself self-employed in music-unrelated business, but every time I occasionally hit the stage, I feel that that's where I belong, that's where I should always be, you know.. the happy place - just like being together with my wife and my dog Fender, or racing down the Autobahn on a motorcycle at 180km/h... And actions have to be taken to achieve that, just like I did to get to the two last above mentioned 'happy places'.

I am a realist and I know that becoming insanely famous with one band and being able to have the lifestyle I want would be, although possible, but still like playing lottery in some way. I like analysing stuff and having a plan, and trying myself out as a session bassist , for example, sounds like a good start to me. Why all this philosophy? Because that's where Wikiloops comes in.

I stumbled across this website a few days ago, I was looking for some backing tracks to play to, just to refresh my hearing, tightness, groove, ability to play and understand different genres cause that's what a session musician has to have. And this thing and all of YOU are incredible! You people are willing to spend your time to do all this stuff and most of you try to do this with high quality. For fun! I'm honestly impressed. Especially (and logically as a bassist) I'm impressed by the drummers - I know what it takes to record and mix drums.

So, people, and Wikiloops creators, thank you for being you, let's have fun together and help each other with their goals! Check out my tracks, PM me if You would like me to play Bass for your track, and if I ever make it as a session musician, my first honorarium for a record session goes directly to Wikiloops donations. /___Signature___/

Best regards,
MrFretless

Welcome to the best site on the net, enjoy the time making music and as a bit of advice forget the thumb count or how many times people add to your tracks. First few months here and I thought I was hated and it bothered me, now I know I am hated and could care less ;) joking of course! have fun and enjoy the music!
