    Okay I'm a beginner of sorts. I learned how to play songs. From basslines videos on YouTube. Never learn the instrument. Now at 54 years old. I am retired due to health issues. I have cancer started in my bladder but has metastasized into my kidneys, lymph nodes and my brain. Which due to chemo radiation therapies and location of tumor. Has caused me to lose the ability to retain knowledge and to comprehend in the short term. It takes me awhile at time to grasp concepts. I sometimes need to go over tings a few times for it to sink in. And I have a hard time in expressing myself or explaining what I mean. Because of this at times it's very frustrating. I become frustrated with myself and it may seem I'm being brash. I assure you it is not my intention. So, I just decided to fulfill my lifelong dream of learning how to play the bass. It's also supposed to help me with memory training according to my doctors. I've been taking video lessons of sorts. I am thinking about signing up for SBL. Which from researching seems to be very reputable place and instructors. Just from general opinion on the Facebook group The Bass Guitar. It seems like more than half of the members are familiar with them. And all have very high opinions. I would really like face-to-face lessons but around here at Waco Texas. There isn't too many and the ones that are extremely high priced. Due to my health issues, I am on a limited income and cannot afford a large amount of money. I've got a lot of stuff I've written myself. I want to be able to transpire that on to sheet music. Either through an app or writing it myself. I have played in a couple cover bands. I would like to start an original band. I am a very big fan of Slipknot and Paul Gray RIP. But I have to say my major influence was Geezer Butler and Steve Harris Nick Simper. Every bass I've ever had it's been a hand-me-down. So, to fulfill my dream I went out and bought myself a brand-new Jackson js2. The beginner's bass but I really like it the neck is pretty fast. I also have a Washburn Force ABT. I also have an old BC Rich Warlock bronze series. Which needs repair and am currently restoring it. I just want to learn how to play, you know. How to play it properly. Learning notes, scale's and then learn how to read music etc etc.
