Inspired by this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=726308 Are you mediocre at best, maybe even crappy at the art of being a bassist? Do you have expensive gear, although some may say you are not worthy? Tell us about it. Sign up and wear your number proudly. Do you feel guilty? Are you proud? We won't judge you. Member #1 and founder, yours truly. I am embarrassed to even try a bass out in front of someone else in a store, but I have an older Spector 5 string and new Warwick and Spector 4's. Hartke amp, all the nicest cables and straps... but I am terrible. Truly terrible, but intend to get good enough to have some fun.
