As you may have guessed, I'm new. I've Been playing bass since last Christmas, and I'm not all that goood. "Don't put yourself down" is what you might be thinking. "You're probably not as bad as you think." Maybe I'm not, but I'll tell you about it. I don't know what the notes are. I mean, I know the notes. a-g, and all the flats and stuff, just don't know where they're at on the bass. I've got a four-string Ibanez bass. The cord to the amp is screwed up, so I'm waiting for a new one. But I do know how to read online tabs. I don't know how to adjust the tune of my bass and crap, though. Like tuning it down and stuff.
