    Hey Everybody.

    I have been lurking around here for a little while, so i finally decided to sign up to this board.

    I do come from a guitar player back ground :spit: Funny thing is at 14 or 15 my first guitar was a Bass. It was a christmas present, but my dad took it back before Christmas and bought me a guitar instead.(that's right I found it in a closet. :) ).
    Fastfoward: a couple of years :eyebrow:
    Anyway, I went to Collage a received a BA in Music. Downside when I finished school I was burned out on playing guitar(it was no longer fun). I didn't touch a guitar of any kind for about three years.

    When I started to feel like i wanted to get back into music I decided to go to the Bass. Even when I was a guitarist I always liked Bass Players. My first bass was a Dean Edge 4. Which after reading the Joco book is now a fretless.
    My next Bass was A Fender Hot Rod American. Which I bought with my tax return befor I got married. I always wanted to have an American made Instrument.
    And in the next couple of weeks I plan on buying a friends Peavey Fury 6. :hyper:
    Just wanted to say Hi. And give a little info.

    Cheers,
    Kelly

    No worries, buddy, no worries :D.

    Have a good time, I'm sure you'll find the site is very helpful.
     
  11. Hey Kelly, welcome to the board. Yeah, Talkbass has a bad reputation for being snarky to new members but if you stick it out, you'll fit right in. Don't take it personally - you'll learn a ton of bass knowledge while you're here.
