    Is it the witty reparte?
    Is it the plethora of pictures of basses you shouldn't be trying to afford?
    Is it the effects?
    The moderators?
    The love?

    also I'm using it to keep tabs on the Qintar.

    And TPA...

    but that's not here anymore, so I guess I'll take my ball and go, oh wait, someone's already singing that song...

    I always get a kick out of the "my bass is better than your bass" type threads, or the "this guy sucks and the guy I like doesn't suck" type threads.

    It's great to exchange info and ideas, to find out what folks think about particular basses and gear, music, techniques, etc., and to see some pics of some great equipment.

    Finally, I paid the money .. might as well use it!

    Talkbass is a good counterpoint to the Mos Eisley of online forums: Harmony Central.

    When I first came to TB in about 1998 (Last Century!!) - it had none of those things!! ;)

    I came here to find out about how to play Jazz bass and there were people who were able to give a lot of good advice about this :)

    Well, I still moderate in recordings, so I at least make sure stuff is happening there. Lately I've been posting verbose rants every time a newbie asks for any help in GI and techniques. I also really enjoy the discourse in the TPA, which is entertaining.

    I don't care about gear. I don't care about amps or strings or effects or gigs. I'm more interested in music and the people that use this site. Also, it's a good use of time. Waste...use...what's the diff?

    And, though I haven't been sharing much lately, I like to come here to share my music.
  16. i originally came to find out about Tim Commerford's gear a long time ago, and now i come mostly for Matt Till...;)

    For the life of me, I can't remember how I got here. I just seem to have ended up here about 5 years ago or so, and have enjoyed the interaction, friends made, and conversations had ever since. ;) :bassist:

    Thanks...I saw them live last Sunday for the first time, and everything you said is true. They've always been a fave for me, so it was great to see them live.
