Hi all, newb on board. I'm 38, recently my wife decided that I had entirely too much free time on my hands and suggested that I take up some sort of hobby. She was probably thinking golf, or maybe fishing. Instead I bought a co-workers Gibson Les Paul bass, an Ampeg BA112 combo on Ebay, and a Mel Bay How-to book. I am now fumbling my way toward greatness I can't believe I waited this long to play music, but I am having a great time. Did anyone else start late?
