I'm new here (obviously) and I ive been lurking for a little bit and I decided to join finally! I got my first bass when I was pretty young, I was probably like 11 or 12. I didnt really play it much because I couldnt really stick to anything at that age. I fiddled with it and took lessons for a like a month or two and eased out of it. I started back up again like 5 months ago and hadnt really had time for lessons due to me having my suffering grades to worry about in school. Ive been kinda self teaching myself a little bit for the past 5 months or so. Kind of a weird timeline, but, it works. I started mainly because my brother played guitar and we had to have contesting talents, so, I chose bass. That's all there is to it, I dig this forum, glad I found it!
