    phil - One way to get started and see what others in your shoes have asked is to go to the very top of any of these pages and find the "Search" icon.
    After you click on it, try "beginner" in the keyword search or "newbie." Both will show you some recent ground others in your shoes have covered recently.

    If there's a specific question you want to ask, start your own thread like you did here.

    Just asking for general, unfocused "advice" of real value to you is tough. It could range anywhere from "get a good teacher who plays bass as their primary instrument," to "learn that you are the glue that holds the beat and the melody together."
