My Introduction Post: Bass Player and Pilot from Toronto, Canada

Screen Shot 2018-06-22 at 4.52.42 PM.png

Hi Steemit! I'm BennyTheBassman - a bass player and pilot from Toronto, Canada.

I found Steemit through @dan-atstarlite who was very kind to spend some of his time explaining this amazing network to me. I'm really excited to be starting my profile out here - I'm a working bass player in the Canadian music scene, and I have a lot of content to share for aspiring bassists. Also, as the tittle suggests, I fly small planes around Ontario, so I'm looking forward to sharing some of those adventures as well.

I've been posting bass covers on Youtube since January - here's my intro video from that site, so you can see what kind of content you can expect from me here:

My Plan

My plan is to catch the Steemit community up with my back catalog of bass covers, and then continue releasing one cover a week. They are all by request, and I put a lot of work into making sure they're note-for-note transcriptions of the original tunes, so please feel free to request a song for me to cover! Also, I want to post some flying adventures! I took the Steembirds flying a few weeks ago - see this post about that - and people seemed to like that. I'm open to suggestions and would love to learn from and contribute to the community. What do you recommend?


Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Welcome @bennythebassman. Looking forward to hearing some tunes. Hopefully you don’t play bass and fly planes at the same time. 🤣


Ha! That would be difficult!!

Thanks for the welcome, Torrey. <3

Welcome! Make sure to check out and as you can stream and post your music vids.


Thank you!!
I'm posting them on DTube, yeah. About to post the second one!

Welcome to Steemit!!!

Interesting, what a great idea to have this.....

Hello interesting article! I follow you, and you follow me. Let's develop the power of Steemit together, so we can achieve more! Upvoted your post! ;)

Welcome my fellow Torontonian! (I'm really from Oshawa) - Happy you've joined Steemit! post more content from up in the air! Toronto has some killer views!


You're absolutely right. Flying over downtown is one of the cooler things I've ever been able to do. Maybe I'll get someone with a good camera up with me? Capture some of the #views for ya :)


I know of some pretty dope shooters in Toronto - I've also got a pretty good camera and know what I'm doing - but to be honest you want a guy like @dnews - guys a beast - can you fit 2 passengers lol ?


Nice! Yep I can fit 3 passengers + me. 2 in the front and 2 in the back. I fly Cessna 172s. Well, if you guys want to take a flight, just let me know!


Yes x20!!!!!!!!! Welcome to steemit brotha :) More from the6!!!

Very cool, love what I am seeing so far. Welcome welcome! Hope all your Steemy dreams come true ^__^


Thank you!! Me too :)

Welcome welcome 😘
Hey I’m sure i’ll Dig the cover tunes but throw up some original bass lines for us!
Original written by you is what I wanna hear😀


Ok cool!! I'll try to sneak some of those in too :)
Thanks for the feedback and thanks for the welcome!

welcome to steemit you will love it


Thank you! I am, already!

Welcome! I plan on getting my private pilots license soon. I am a paraglider pilot now, but want to fly fixed wing.


Thanks! Yeah go for it. It was an amazing journey getting my private license. Learned so much and worked so hard..but in the end it was so worth it.

lol Cool synchronicity, I just posted a jam I did with my double neck bass/guitar that I named - "Flying"! lol Welcome to Steemit, I'm an artist from Montreal. Followed you :)


Ha - synchronicity indeed. I'll check that out. Followed you!

Hey friend welcome to this amazing community I wish you a great success here.
With love good luck.


Wish you great success friend.

Welcome !! Great to see another bassplayer / musician around :) looking forward to your covers..


Thank you!! Let me know if you have any song requests :)


Something Chilli Peppers? Flea is one funky mother!@#$ :)

Welcome to Steemit Bro
You are much more closer to unlimited success .Keep steeming

Very cool, nice to meet you.

I love Cake's bass lines, such rhythm and thump.

Do you fly planes that land in water? Where abouts do you fly?


Cake! Yeah I love their stuff too. Always found it super funky. Are you'd like to see a cake cover at some point? Got a particular song in mind?

No, I don't fly float planes - yet. I do want to learn, but it's a lot of extra training, and I'm working on getting my commercial license now, so that I can start getting official pilot jobs. One thing at a time... :)

Welcome! So cool! You'll find a lot of us in the GTA area on Steemit.


Nice. You're right - I am already! Thanks for the welcome.
