    Hello all...name here is Tony, and I've been playing guitar for a few years now. I've been kicking around the idea of trying my luck at playing Bass, so I recently put a deposit on a new Fender "Geddy Lee" signature moddel Jazz Bass.
    I'll be stopping by here to pick your collective brains, and ask your typical "newbee" questions. If I ask too many stupid questions, just let me know....LOL....I gotta start somewhere.
     
  2. Glad to see you may convert, Don't worry about stupid questions, we have all asked them at some point, just have a ball, and no matter what just groove.....

    Congratulations on your new bass, I have one just like it!

    The Geddy Lee is a great Jazz bass, has a nice slim neck, and the '62 reissue pickups have great tone.

    Welcome to the brand new world of being a bassplayer, and welcome to Talkbass!

    Welcome Tony...nice to see another guitar convert. Beware though, if you're like I was you'll soon see your guitars sitting on their stands begging you for attention.

    I know what you mean DaveB, but I don't think they will be lonely for too long.
    The reasons I want to get a Bass are many, instead of blowing my money on a rythum machine to jam with, I'm getting a Bass. It will give me another instrument to learn and practice music with, and I'll be able to record my own Bass rythums to jam to with my guitars.
    I had a Jazz Bass many moons ago, but didn't get very far with it, kick myself for letting it go, 20/20 hindsight being what it is. I have a renewed intrest in the instrument that I feel will last quite a bit longer this time around. All I have to do now is come up with the money to get it out of it's music store prison...

    Yes
    I used to play guitar for a while, too. I am one of the many who converted to bass and am loving it. Don't know how I'd survive without talkbass though.................
