About FrankB-1
Joined January 2020
I am a physician with a private practice in internal medicine, although my true passion is music. I have been a guitar player and builder for over 50 years. Teaching guitar helped pay for my education.

As a musician, my educational background is "science-heavy". I began with a bachelor's degree in chemistry. After graduating I decided to move into the medical space by doing a research fellowship in biomedical engineering with a specialty in artificial internal organs. My next step was a doctorate in medicine with specialty training in internal medicine. I completed my education with a masters degree in healthcare informatics.

I am eager to begin my career in affiliate marketing. The fantastic community and learning resources at WA make it an awesome place to begin!

Thanks for the follow! We have similar interests it seems. I've played bass for 35 years now and guitar for 20... There's nothing like music! Once my online business is rolling, I should have some more time to learn a new instrument. I will follow your success and hope to learn from you!
Take care
J-F
Always do your best and never ever quit!

Hello Frank,

It is nice to meet you and someone with the same passion as me. I have a collection of guitars, including a jazz bass, but it is a far cry compared to you. I can set up and customize my own (changing pups, custom wiring, re-paint, change HWs, etc.) but did not delve into building guitars. I know electronics and can mod pedals and did build pedals before. I have a collection of vintage Boss pedals as well.

I am more into metal and progressive rock music. 30 years playing guitars in and out of bands, mostly just a garage player :) and now my eldest son is playing bass. I am mostly self-taught and have some theories behind my playing.

Wishing you all the best!

Hi, Lemuel

Great to meet you and connect with a fellow guitar player/enthusiast!

I played and taught professionally to help pay for my education. These days, education is so costly that it wouldn't be worthwhile. I mostly play and build guitars for fun, but I play every day.

I only have one bass guitar that I use for recording. It's a 60s MusicMaster bass that I bought new and played for a short time in a high-school band.

The MusicMaster bass has a single STRAT pickup almost halfway between the last fret and the bridge, so it gives a "punchy-midrange" sound similar to Steve Harris's Fender Precision. Iron Maiden is one of my favorite Metal bands!

All the Best!

Hello, Mr. Guitar Man. I was on my way to follow you when I noticed you had followed me. Thank you for that-- and back at you. You, by no means, look old enough to have practiced medicine for 40 years. I will check out your website and see how you do it. I am very happy to meet you and I shall enjoy following your path here at WA.

Hi, Donna

Those photos of me are not up to date, so I'll have to add some newer ones. I'm 67 years old and still going strong!

A real pleasure meeting you! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi, Frank B-1.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

You have been here since 2020.
I have been here longer.

I am very pleased to make your acquaintance again.

Apparently, I am following you. I am in honour.

What can you tell me about Lignans?

I believe that there is a potential that needs to be explored.

Your thoughts?

Sent with respect.

Paul Mindra.

Hi, Paul

Lignans are interesting.

Some studies have shown that they have natural anti- inflammatory benefits and may have a role in cancer prevention but there is no definitive data to substantiate the claim that their risk lowering benefit is statistically significant.

Thank you.
Can you elaborate on their "Risk Lowering Benefit?"

Peace, love, and, light my friend.

Their risk of lowering the types of cancer that were studied is not statistically significant (p value > 0.05), but the data sets were limited by a small patient population and study length, so more clinical investigation needs to be done.

should this investigation be continued?

Sorry to put this on you.

You seem to be a very nice person.

And this started from "Chat?"

Thanks for the follow. We have a love of music in common. Before 1992, I was an amateur pianist who was caught up in the business world as a CPA. Once an accident ended my profession, I discovered the ability to sing - heretofore, an impossibility. While I was not tone-deaf, I could not stay on key/pitch.

I spent about 15 years in rehab trying to get back my cognitive abilities. Once I was functioning OK, who wants to ba a CPA? lol

Since 2012, I have been involved with my Wellness Center.
