My name is Justin, I play bass and my older friends call me Stretch because I’m 6 foot 4 and they lack imagination. I want to start a band and call it Stretch ‘n’ the Truth or Stretch ‘n’ the Friendship, which I might do a bit later because I’m in another band project and don’t have the time. It’s this other band project – my first serious one – that’s worth blogging about because it continues to be a real eye opener for anyone with moderate ambition such as mine. So come along and learn about breaking into the cover band scene, holding together a disparate group of people, music gear and getting better at using it.
