I was looking at the current poll on the Talkbass home page "How Long Have You Been Playing Bass?" The poll votes number 3005 as I type this, so that is a relatively, statistically significant sampling, IMO. What struck me is that the number of respondents who answered "2-3 years" is very near 14% while those who answered "3-4 years" plummets to 7.8%......a dramatic drop, IMO. What's even more surprising to me, (since I had to answer in the "20+ years" category). is that, all of a sudden, the responses more than double from 4% in the "15-20 years" category to 11% in the "20+ years" category. Just wondered if anyone had any insight/ speculation/WAG's ("wild ass guesses") on what seems so weird to me.
