    Well I've noticed alot of bass players here are older than me. I am only 15. I think its great hearing from older players though, they have better info than other 15 year olds telling me to play a bunch of punk songs.

    yeah, i wish i could say i was only twice your age. I do feel like it.

    Of course, you still could have been playing bass longer than i have.

    I'm not tellin' anyone how old I am, but I will give you a riddle:

    I was born the day after JFK (NOT Jr! :p) was assassinated.

    I've been playing longer than most of y'all have been alive, but I ain't a codger like Mike J yet...

    ...yet...


    ;)

    (Hey, Mike, I'm gonna be playin' in NYC next month, you comin' out? :D)

  18. Been playing bass for 18 years....Been in the Air Force 13 years....ummm....I hated cleaning my room as a kid...I guess I'm 19 years old.............Not

    31 But, I always want to tell people that I'm around 22 or so...That's what I feel...I have to go...so much more to learn...

    That's the beauty of music; you continually learn. You will never know it ALL. Open your horizons and take everything in...Be good!
