Hello! I'm Ron Tavalin, a Chicago-based progressive rock/metal bassist and this is my low-end den. Here you'll find music videos, bass guitar information, technique, and whatever else.

I have been reluctantly dragged into the world of the web as a means of reaching an audience and potential bandmates/recording opportunities. I was posting videos on Youtube and linking them to my Facebook page as well as Talkbass.com, but thought I needed a real web presence and some place to easily update my material without having to deal with Youtube’s draconian ways.

So here we are… day 1.
