Hello people. I am a 24 guy who is very tempted to play bass after this age and who knows jack about it. And I don't know If I am doing the right thing. But the good part is I dont care either. When I was looking everywhere for info, searching the whole net I came up with two places, harmony central and talkbass. both very useful. But I really fell in love with this forum and felt that I had to be a member and say thanks. By the way after reading everything here I decided buying a 4string quilted essex standard jazz copy. Friends around say that I should buy active but I don't know. I hope that I'm making the right thing but the standards are the best start I suppose. thanks again.
