    Hi, I'm just starting out on the bass. Been mucking around for six months or so and I've been more serious over the last 3 months. I started on the guitar years ago, and never really got into it. I was always drawn to the 'rhythm' of the songs, hence the bass was a natural progression for me. Now I'm approaching middle age and I'm much more focussed on learning the bass.
    I own a 'cheapish' Fender Squire 'P' bass, and a Yamaha 'B100(III) head with a JBL single speaker box.
    I have been transcribing heaps of songs, and studying from some good bass sites on the net, but I really want to 'talk' to other bassists and learn as much as I can from other bass players.
    I'm loving every aspect of the bass, from playing to studying theory etc.
    So I feel like I'm a sponge at this stage, soaking up everything I can to help me be a better player and musician.
    One specific question I have is 'where would the best site on the net be for accurate bass tablature'?
    I have been on bassmasta, songster, and a couple of others, but I'm not too sure that they're all accurate!
    Cheers, and I hope to contribute a lot around here.
