"How long you been playin' for, stranger?"

Discussion in 'Suggestion Box' started by Bushfire, Feb 5, 2006.


  1. What about adding a "date started playing" section in the profile? Is that possible, 'cause I reckon it would be a good reference point.

    What do you guys think?

    i don't really see what point that would serve

    if a young person was really hungry for knowledge they could end up knowing just as much if not more about bass than an average person who's been playing 10+ years.

    so they only thing that it would serve any purpose is for live shows. someone who has been playing for 20 years has probably played more live shows than someone with 2 years of experience.. but like i said... it doesn't mean that they know more.
