Ok, here's the deal. I'm extremely new to playing bass or any instrument for that matter but I really wanna learn and I'm willing to. I don't know the first thing about playing bass and I can't take lessons because the 'closest' place is 18 miles away. What I'm asking for is if someone can talk to me here or through AIM about teaching me the basics og playing a bass. I'm willing to learn and I know it'll take time but I'm a quick learner and I really don't wanna put $250+ into something and wind up not using it... Help teh n00b! Thanks in advance.
