  1. I notice on this site that at the end of peoples post they have a ending statement that lists their gear and certain "clubs" id like to know how to add this to my profile so that my messages will appear the same way?

    I wouldn't join any club that would have me for a member.

    You have to spend at least a year in Off-Topic to earn your stripes. Even then, its not what you know, it's who you know.

    Rule One: Don't talk about TB clubs. :ninja:

    In all seriousness, it's as easy as going onto the thread, making it known that you have what it takes to be a member (pic or no bass....), and politely asking the OP for a number.

    You can also just put something in your signature like " #13 Crazy X girlfriend club" Everyone will be wanting a number for your club.

    Look for the threads that say club in it. For example, you have a Yamaha BB bass guitar. You go to bass guitars, look for the Yamaha BB club. Put up a photo of your Yamaha BB and ask for a number, and some person who sort of manages club numbers will give you a number. That's it.

    You can even create one yourself if you are unable to join one.

    We're sworn to secrecy in some clubs, especially with the ones we don't have in our signatures.

    You have to go thru a special test, depending on the club. And it varies from club to club. For instance, to join the Sadowsky club you have to be extremely good looking and play the bass at virtuoso levels, the audition takes months to prepare for. It would probably be easier to get the Bass chair on Letterman.

    The Bongo club requires a lawyer to handle the paperwork and an OSHA inspection of your waste disposal facilities. I gave up after trying to read the 13000 page rule book. Some clubs are easy to join like the Mexican Fender club, there you just wait till some guy drives buy with a truck in the mourning at Home Depot ( I believe it's John Turner) and he signs you up.

    For more information send a private message to either Pacman or Bassy Bill or another Moderator they will be glad to send you the PDF file titled "an introduction to clubs at Talk bass". But you better have a DSL, it takes forever to down load with analog tube driven internet connections, just ask JimmyM.

    We were all being [email protected] and you ruined it by giving a legitimate answer!

    Is there a buzzkill club? :)

    Here's my TB club experience...

    To get my membership in the "Crappy Bassists With Expensive Gear" club I had to resurrect Cliff Burton from the dead.

    To get into the "LGBT" club I had to be a lesbian...simple enough.

    To be in the "Mediocre Bassists" club I had to convince Roger Waters that "Money" was actually written entirely in 4/4 time. (The 7/8 thing is just a myth).

    To get my membership in the "Country Bassists Club" I had to play nothing but roots and fifths for three days straight.

    To get my membership in the "Acoustic Bass Guitar Fetish Club" I had to castrate a bear with my Kingman's headstock.

    Good luck with your TB club endeavors...and watch out for bears.

    It's all fun and games until the bill for your dues comes in.

    You can always join the TBOTNN club, we welcome everyone.

    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
    Send these, the homeless,
    Tempest-tossed to me
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

    The only requirement is that you have to turn your head in revulsion every time you see a picture of Joan Rivers.
