Thank you Greg for the kind e-mail. Greg is too cool, and one of the reasons I have remained a member of this forum long after I stopped playing bass guitar. The rest of y'all are great too.
You never know, you may take up the Bass again. I stopped playing in 2003 and started back up in 2011. I never considered not coming here, it's way too cool of a place to hang out and TB'ers like yourself make it worth coming here.
Mike is a cool dude. YEARS ago, when I was a broke azz college student he send me a CAT 5 cable for free through the mail, since I was too broke to afford one at the time. Completely unsolicited, he just did it.
