    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.

    Hi George, like you, I'm also a newbie and I'm also hoping to prove that you're never too old to learn the bass... only I've got a lot less time left than you to perfect my skills ;-)

    Where in the world are you? I'm in darkest Catalonia ... well actually the sun is cracking the flags at the moment. :)

    See you around,

    Hopefully it is true that you are never too old. I am already wondering if I will be able to memorize a single song let alone many gezz.

    I am in Arizona where it is always just too hot and I want to stay in doors.
  4. I'm 54 in 3 weeks and I started learning and playing in mid January. I bought a Squire P Bass package but I'm getting a 2012 Fender American Standard P Bass .... Figured I might as well get a really good Bass and stick with it:). Read a lot of books, having a couple of lessons a month, and lots of practice. Just got Rockschool Stage 3 new syllabus and I'm going to do that.... :). Haven't nailed one song all the way through yet but still persevering with it
