    I want to say how much I enjoy this forum. While we disagree, most seem to understand that we are all in different places musically, and play very different music to very different audiences. Thanks for many good reads over the years!

    That is all ...

  7. I agree! Lots of diverse perspectives here - and that is a formula for everyone to benefit from. There are SO MANY people on here I’d love to sit down and have a drink with.

    Couldn't agree more. Some of my favorite people here are some of the guys I disagree with most. :D

    But it's seriously a great "cyber community" overall.
  10. Apparently it's only great so long as you aren't a bona-fide bigshot telling everyone how it's really done in the big leagues and getting pushback from the trenches where that don't fly.

    Thanks, I couldn’t quite determine what that odor was.
    I know my car smelled like cigarettes in the 70’s and 80’s after the weekend and I didn’t even smoke cigarettes.

    What, it's group hug time? :meh:



    Kidding aside, I agree. I came here as a middle-aged newbie having no idea what bass playing was about other than I thought it would be fun to play. And, a few years ago when I finally decided to actually learn to play (as opposed to just futzing around in my basement as I had been doing for too many years), I got great advice not just on gear but on all aspects of playing out with others.

    I've gotten a lot of good information, had great experiences buying from and selling to other TB'ers, have gotten to know quite a few TB'ers via IMs and Facebook, and have also met a few TB'ers in person along the way. I've had a great experience here and learned far more than I ever could have learned on my own starting as late in life as I did.

    You're welcome. This really is a great resource for figuring out the dos and don'ts of running a band. And I don't know how this is going to sound, but among other things it has made me really appreciate how lucky I've been over the years. No power trips, no head games, no drug abuse, no guitar players with freaky Significant Others, no scheming promoters trying to rip me off...maybe there's something wrong with me? :D

  20. I enjoy reading the posts. It is very educational, sometimes its very opinionated, even some of my replies are opinionated (Did I just say that ?? ) Humor and off-topic are good to read also.
