Hi all. I just did a Google search and found this forum. After weeks of eyeballing a bass I saw online, I went and picked it up last night, ignoring the cries of my already empty wallet. It's a Peavey Grind 4 string and I pretty much fell in love with it at first sight. So gorgeous! My first bass, but not my first instrument. I have soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone ukes, a banjolele, a violin, a djembe, a parlor guitar, a mountain dulcimer, and a native American flute. My bf has several electric guitars and basses, and said I can use his old bass amp. I'm just waiting on getting a cable and a strap, which should arrive Wednesday. I'm super excited to learn to play, even if I'm never terribly good. So far I have no musical genius, but I enjoy my instruments and have fun trying.
