Last November, I came upon this site while, quite naively, using a search engine to look for a "modern sounding" instrument to add to the fossils I have depended on for decades. So, on my Talkbass anniversary, I wanted to ask - Has Talkbass changed your perspectives on music and bass since you came here???? (Especially you younger guys!) And if so, can you briefly describe - How??? As for myself - my tolerance, knowledge, appreciation of, and exposure to music/gear/politicial viewpoints I wouldn't have probably otherwise known or cared about, has been vastly expanded. Thank you Paul and my Talkbass "homies"!!!!
