Hi hi TB, I am new ha. So, my name is george and I decided to learn to play the bass. I have no real musical background, I toyed with a guitar years ago but never actually learned to play so at 31 years old I bought a bass. I went with a Fiesta red fender 50's re-poduction and hope it is a good bass, if it's not please feel free not to tell me ha. I don't have an amp yet, I was hoping to use a USB input device(Guitar link) but am having issues with my macs. I have to figure it out or just buy a cheapy practice amp. I will be doing a lot of reading and lurking here and hopefully learning a lot along the way.
