    1) There is no "Best kind". Be more specific.

    2) www.wheatdesign.com/bassbook/index2.html

    That should tell you pretty much what you need to know.

    3) Depends on who you ask.

    4) There is no correct answer. And it really doesn't matter.

    5) ...must...bite...tongue....

    And TalkBass has around 18,000 members. If they all replied, I can think of a few people who wouldn't appreciate it.

    1) Mine :) - yours should be the best for you too.

    2) Scales are found on fish - you can use them as jewelry. Also, check this great scale instructional page by Jazzbo - http://www.talkbass.com/articles/articleview.php?ID=19

    3) No.

    4) If you don't want opinions, then don't ask for them. ;)

    5) Bassist for Korn.

    I don't go to "My first post" threads often, but the name Fat Funker cracked me up. What would someone with that name have to say in their first post? Ha! That was too funny! Welcome, dude, I see you're paying attention!

    Gabu drives by... leans out of the car and with his big red rubber stamp votes:

    "Close this thread!"

    ...and drives off to the more valuable threads.
     
  16. I am very sorry for getting so many peoples blood pressure up. I just wanted to say hello and welcome myself to talk bass. I have been reading post for a while and I thought most of you would get my sarcastic questions. Oh well funk on.

    Welcome,

    Glad you decided to post again. Many times newbies will make an initial and/or sometimes inflammatory statement ... then run. You will find most folks at Talkbass to be pretty civil.

    Sarcasm does seem to be on the rise around here, so thick skin or kevlar underwear seems to help. Hang in there.

    Interesting "Handle" BTW.

    FatFunker, welcome to Talkbass.

    Some of the veterans took your post the wrong way, as it pushed a lot of hot buttons and reminded us of a former member who has been banned.

    As long as you don't start acting like that person, you should fit in Just as Well as anyone Can.
