Hi My name is Bobby and I'm 51 years old and have only been playing bass since Nov. I play with my brother's classic rock band and am having a blast. I have inexpensive equipment but it gets me by for now. I didn't want to get too far in debt to see if I was going to even like this, but now I'm hooked! Any correspondence with practice ideas or other help for a beginner would be appreciated. I am happy to be on this site with others that enjoy bass, too.
