    She wanted a "red sparkly bass."
    I think she is happy.
    Do other TB's have kids with basses?
    Show em off!

    Like any good pusher, glad to see that you've got another one hooked nice and young! She'll be a lifer ;)

    Awesome! I'm 25 without kids, BUT, I was once a youngster who couldn't wait to get my hands on my dad's Guild B302. So as a previous kid who wanted a bass, I say thank you to parent's all over the world who embrace the power and love of music!

    Perfect form.

    Better haircut.

    Yeah she gets to use my Gibson Thor tube amp as well!
    I was in my 30's by the time I got to play through an all tube amp.

    Neither of my parents play anything, so I've done it off my own back, like a lot of bassists out there, but that is a BRILLIANT picture there!

    I see she's a fan of the floating thumb ;)

    I was 44 when I started at bass, first instrument (well, I did mess around with classical guitar when I was 10-11). Gave my kids a "headstart". My 12 y/o girl is taking guitar lessons, 8 y/o girl piano, 7 y/o crazy little man is a drummer. We have the makings of our own little band here!

    Your kid's face is worth a million bucks! Enjoy!

    Yeah she seems to be trying that the most.
    I have not said "no pick" but she seems to emulate pops:bassist:

    My "kid" is 36 now. I "loaned" him my Schecter P bass when he was in the 8th or 9th grade so he could play a school talent show with his band of neighborhood buddies. That was something like 20 years ago and he still has the bass! I've tried to reclaim it a few times but without success. Eventually I gave up and just bought another bass :)
    Come to think of of...that kid has my old Gibson B25 acoustic too. DOH!

    Looks like she's into Wooten 'hand-below-strings' type of slap

    that'd be a risky move in my household hahahahaha
