    First off my short bass history,I've been playing for about 5-6 months on my own and just had my first lesson last week.
    My girlfriend's brother has been playing the guitar about the same amount of time and a friend of his has been playing drums for most of his life.

    we'd like to get together and "jam" but I don't really know what the hell to do ! Are there any tips you guys can give me as to how or what to play/study ? Do I just start out really simple and follow the kick drum ? What about when just playing with a guitarist ? what about writing bass lines ? Any other input ? HELP!?

  2. Don't think about it... you are overthinking, just like I did the first time...

    Just get together, make noise, and have fun..and tune your instruments so you're all on the same page...

    I know I seem vague, but the best music usually happens when you literally "fall into" something cool..

    Good luck. :)

    P.S., ...you forgot these guys at the end of your post::help: :help: :help: :help: :help:

    ^^I total agree with the above, esp. the fun part.
