    Just wondering, How much time or how many posts does it take to shed newbie status?

    How do I fit in? I read music in both bass and treble cleff, I've played trumpet since elementary school and have played guitar for close to 30 years.
    I played bass (poorly) in a band 15 years ago, and I'm ready to learn how to play properly.

    I'm new to this site, and I'm new to playing bass (kinda sorta), so technically I think I'm still a newbie.

    Right, Pete?;)
     
  9. I've got 'em in the freezer right now, but it's such a pain finding someone who'll attach 'em.

    "First cut is the deepest..." - wasn't that song about being a newbie? :D
     

  19. Ohhh! Whoops. But he did mention "expansive" knowledge of theory. Ehh?....Ehhh? come on, ehhhhh?
    No reference to me whatsoever? Oh well, it was funny while my misunderstanding lasted.:)

    Oh, could someone please post a link to that thread? I can't find it with a search. It won't bring up anything. Maybe I'm not doing it correctly. Help.:)

    How about the spelling? Is it newbie or noobie? And is one who abuses newbies/noobies a noobiefile? Bruce?
