    I need to, "interview 5 - 10 suitable individuals to develop 2 primary personas for a website". The site is being designed as a larger project to fulfill a requirement of my web design class. The overarching idea is for the site to be an informationally-driven site regarding fretless bass, related equipment reviews, lessons, transcriptions and/or leadsheets, and possibly interviews --- basically, an online version of Bass Player, but devoted solely to fretless (but all players are welcome to answer -- esp., since this write-up is due by midnight).

    This will not be a real web site. This is only for an assignment for my class. No identification will be used. I am only creating a user persona which would (in the real-world) factor into the creation and design of a usable website to interested parties. You're helping me with homework, nothing more.

    So, basically, would a few of you mind answering the following questions:


    1. How frequently do you access the global Internet?


    2. How often to you use the various search engines (Google, Bing, etc...) to find information regarding music (esp. bass-related), musical instrument products, product reviews.

    3. Which search engines do you use primarily?


    4. What music-related magazines and or websites (you don't need to list TB here...that's a given) do you read/visit?

    5. What is the frequency that you read/visit/purchase the aforementioned sources?

    6. What is the ONE thing you believe is missing from current bass-related publications?


    7. Which of the following would you most be interested in:
    a) A magazine/site with many lead sheets, and a few transcriptions (to include TAB)
    b) A magazine/site with many transcriptions (to include TAB), and a few lead sheets
    c) I don't care about either. I have super awesome ears and do everything myself.


    8. What types of lessons (general knowledge, music theory, technique) would MOST interest you.

    9. How many basses do you own?

    10. Do you play any other instrument(s)?

    Thanks a bunch in advance,
     
  2. I was going to do it, but most of my answers would be short, one sentence answers and I know they just make things harder when it comes to assignments.

    1. All the time. I'd be lucky to go a couple of hours without using the internet for something directly, unless I am sleeping or travelling or something.

    2. Daily, several times daily.

    3. Google. There is more than one?

    4. TB, Ultimate Guitar for tabs, Last.fm, Several forums specific to bands I listen to. I'd pick up a bass magazine if I ever saw one.

    5. Daily, hourly probably.

    6. I'll have to have a think about this one, hopefully I remember to get back to you.

    7. B

    8. I'd benefit from any sort of professional instruction. technique and a little general knowledge is something I would be interested in short term. If I was going to do regular lessons or study properly, I would be very interested to properly learn musical theory.

    9. 5. Guitar family instruments (including uke/banjo/etc) 15.

    10. Poorly :p
