Feel free to post on my comment board, etc. any time, I really appreciate those messages! I don't really know what I can say here  that I haven't said anywhere else, but the gif. above is a short summary of my personality.

I also upload different Double Bass pieces from time to time on my videos section, so feel free to check those out!


Just a general notice that I spend less time on Care2, as I'm trying to help friends who are going through difficult times at the moment and be there for them. But I'll try my best to reply to any messages!
