    I have become a supporting member!

    I am a late starter on bass, 31 when I bought my first, and soon after I found an ad for TalkBass in one of the mags. I don't get to go out much to see other bass players, with kids and all, so I feel that TalkBass has been my instructor. Thank you, Paul and TalkBass for everything...it's been a long time coming.

    Now to pick an avatar.

    Congrats. I too discovered bass later in life but have no regrets. Talkbass has been invaluable to me as a source of all things bass related. Very helpful people here.

    Talkbass rules.

    Whoa. Your story sounds exactly like mine. All I can say is get ready for all of the gear you are going to be buying and selling over the next couple years.

    I too, started @ 31. Now, I'm,....uh...nevermind, but I now play for a living. Welcome to the fold. BTW, I've been here for over 5 years and 7000 posts, and Paul never gets completely naked, so if that's what you're here for, forget it, it ain't happening! :bag:

    No, you are not a late started...

    I just started at the young age of 40. I am 41 now, and I still suck. Well, maybe someday I can get my groove thing on. :hyper:

  12. Agreed, this is a great website and message board. Of all the interests I have and their corresponding internet communities, Talk Bass is easily the most informative and friendly place I frequently visit. Once I scrounge up enough cash I'll become a Supporting Member.

    But I just bought a new bass :))) so it'll have to wait :)().
