Hello all! As the title states, I am new to the bass guitar. I have had 7 years of tuba experience, so I thought that I would try my hand at the bass guitar! I have picked up an Ibanez starter kit last week, and I had my first lesson this Saturday. So far I have gained alot of knowlege from this group so thank you all! I hope to be able to play well enough to be able to do some small gig's...but if not, oh well...no loss, as long as I enjoy playing.
