Hi all! I just turned 60 last month, and have always loved the bass guitar. However, I have never played ANY instrument, nor do I have any musical talent (my wife won't even let me sing in the shower or play the radio)! But, I really want to prove to myself that I can learn to play. And I am starting with a a series of 4 private lessons tomorrow. I think what I might lack in prior musical knowledge is (hopefully) offset by a real desire to prove that I can do this. Am I crazy? I have been researching for a month now, and want to do this. Obviously, no expectations of being a great player, but if I can learn to play even at a very basic level, I will feel that I've accomplished a big goal. I bought a small used practice amp (Traynor Bass Mate 25-10), and will be borrowing my brother-in-laws bass, although I'm not even sure what kind it is. Ideally, I would like to buy my own Precision... an American built of some type. I have the $$ to get what I want, and I think if I get a higher end (perhaps a Pro?), I would have a good vested interest in it to keep me going and learning. Any words of wisdom appreciated!
