    Hey everybody,

    This is my first post on Talkbass, and thought I should make it count by saying Hi to everyone and giving a little bit of a background on myself.

    So, here goes:

    -I'm 17
    -live in Canada
    -have been playing bass for 4 years (took lessons for 2)
    -absolutely LOVE music, it's basically 85% percent of what i do
    My favourite musicians/ bands include: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, Nirvana, Radiohead, Rage, Beck, Frog Brigade, the Police, and a lot, lot more

    Talkbass seems like an awesome collection of information, and a non-stop party, and I hope I fit in around here.

    So... yeah... thats pretty much it.

  5. Hi Johnny Appleseed!!

    I didn't know you were Canadian... wow, we learn something new everyday :D .

    Welcome to TalkBass, dude.
  6. Hey Johnny, nice to meet you. I'm almost 17 (I got in trouble for saying I was 17 once :meh: ), I've been playing for four years too (but I'm still taking lessons), and it looks like we have similar tastes.

    Too bad you live in Canada. I'm not one for long distance relationships :eek: just kidding :D

    Hope you have fun here, look forward to seeing more of you around. :smug:

    EDIT: you have an.... interesting website. :D

    Howdy Johnny, I'm from Ontario :D. Almost 17, and I'm almost halfway into my third year of playing. Have a good time, this place is a great place to talk shop with other musicians and whatnot. Don't underestimate the search feature, but don't be afraid to ask for help -- it's what we're here for :).

    What I want to know is, why is Nino using Yvons avatar?... Or is that really Yvon posing as Nino?

    Rush who? Oh man, I said that too loud. I think I'm going to get the crap kicked out of me....
    Seriously, thanks for the welcomes all. Especially from those who made an attept to hit on me.

    And Steph, as for the website, the best thing to do is ignore it. My friends and I have WAY too much time on our hands. :D

    edit: forgot the "e" on "unite". that would have been embarassing ;)
  17. You're welcome. ;)

    I figured. :eyebrow: :D

    I need more space for mine, I'm having trouble with my data transfer. Oh well, it's what you have to put up with when you're not prepared to pay for it. :eek: :smug:
