    Sup readers, Im Jackson, I JUST joined this forum, im 13, pretty young, eighth grader, star football player, music freak, im probably the only kid here that is into the brian setzer and rockabilly scene. im so into music, I know alot about gear for my age, i was at GC and even one of the workers was so suprised on my knowledge, i play bass guitar, and I finally found my place in the music world.

    funny story on how i started on bass, last winter, in December,
    I was so into koRn and slipknot, im not into it anymore i just grew out of it, its way too dark, im into punk rock now. But when i was listening to a koRn song, on youtube there was a video on the sidebar that was a guitar cover, i accidentally clicked on it and i didnt even realize it was a guitar cover, koRn uses 7 string guitars, and that B string was so deep, I thought it was a bass, LOL. So from there, I just searched up one of my favorite song's bass cover. I fell in love with the sound, I finally got my hands on a bass, Broke it in a month, nutted up, and got my bass i had wanted since i first got into bass guitar. I started playing guitar in second grade, got lessons, and my guitar teacher and amazing friend Brian Levell, was out on a jog, and fell, and suddenly had a severe heart attck, and died, right there, he was my rock teacher, we even wrote a song together. Once he died, it really bummed me out and i quit. then I got inspired by guitar hero to play drums, turned out, i was not really enjoying myself, then, 2 years later, i got into bass, and its a perfect match!
    I love pop-punk, and clasic rock, and real punk rock, such as fall out boy, yellowcard, blink 182, rise against, ect. Im new to this forum, i love fender P basses, and music is my rock.

    R.I.P Brian Levell

    Welcome to Talkbass! Just a friendly warning, you might not want to go around calling blink-182, FOB etc. "real punk rock." Punk guys can get a bit touchy about that.

    What bass do you have?
     
  11. I was assuming the list of bands were related to the "pop punk, classic rock and real punk" comment, it's the only way I could compute it :p

    i meant to say on the bands Zoa, that i like the old punk rock like the clash and stuff, the fallout boy and blink 182 are pop-punk, sorry if that confused you and i labeled it wrong. :p

    I don't have much experience with Schecter, played one at GC once, but that's all.. I'm playing a 4003 Jetglo Rickenbacker, and I also got a epiphone thunderbird.
