Hello all my bass playing comrades. I have been playing for about 8 years now. I did the whole "get addicted to TalkBass" thing before I even became a member. I've been using TalkBass as a research tool for about 4 years now, and I've been spending 3+ hours every day just lurking around for the past month. So, I decided that I really should become a member. I look forward to getting to know all you guys. I have have already learned so much from so many people here. TalkBass is the first place I come for any and all bass advice. A.J.
