Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I am seriously looking at purchasing a bass guitar. I have wanted to learn since I was like 18. Relationships, fatherhood, and work have prevented me from pursuing this until recently. 9 years later I am ready to learn. I am hear because I figure the best people to talk to and get suggestions from are the ones that live it. I am leaning towards starting with a bass pack. I am open for suggestions from anyone. Thank you.
