    Well, after a short time here, I have decided that I dont really need to hang around the BG forum anymore, I mean there's nothing there but the Basses category, and its just a bunch of idiots asking if they should switch to a 5 string bass, or which 5 string to choose...

    In MSC. these people keep talking about how wrong it is to switch to a 5 string before you "Master the 4 string" then it get's like 400 replies, 50 of them are like "Right on dewd, thats towtally trew" and the Rest are Like "What, you cant master the 4 string, What about anthoney jackson...." then the initial poster will say something about some bass hero that he agree's with (You guys seem to like him) something like... "The bass isnt a Key board---Ron Carter".

    So I think im done with all that crap, there is almost nothing of any use there, just people showing pic's of there basses 'n stuff...


    Good Times

    -Tim.

    I agree in a way - but really, which forum anything is in, is irrelevant - as I only ever use the "New Posts" function, browse through the titles of threads and choose what to look at that way. I never hang around in a particular forum or part of the site.

    Having said that, I do find that I post less and less in BG and the areas that interest me are more in DB-land - but that's probably because over the last 5 years or so, I've seen it all before, as regards BG stuff .......

    Yeah, you guys are stuck with me!

    I will drop by the BG forum rarely, but like I said, there is nothing of any use there.
     
  8. The DB side is like a nice jazz "listening room" and the BG side is like a college bar IMHO.

    That depends on the use needed [some people have the need to talk endlessly about Sadowski], I have noticed that I am spending less time over there [other then off topic], it just seems like the same thing over and over again.

    Well, it's always good to remember that once we were young, ignorant and asking stupid questions, too.

    Loosen up - and enjoy the good bits.

    I'm not so sure either - I've always been able to spell - and I'm sure my grammar was actually better, when I was 11 or 12 years old than it is now!! ;)

    I've been reading TB for a while now (though posting rarely) and I have to say that I'm highly impressed (and intimidated) by how well posters from non-English speaking countries post in English. I swear that your English and many others is far better than what I hear at work on a daily basis.

    It makes me realize I'm no longer young but plenty stupid enough to still be learning! :)
