What was your FIRST TB thread??

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by JMacBass65, Nov 28, 2015.

  1. I thought this might be fun, or I am incredibly bored and need to go play my bass, or fix the leaky faucet......

    I found, fairly easily BTW, my first ever TB thread:

    Help needed - Private Party Gigs

    What was yours??

    Not your first post, BTW. I'm looking for the first thread you ever started.

    Mine, linked above, goes back to June of 2009, about six months after joining. I had posted a bunch, but never started a thread until I had a question about gig compensation.

    Then, as now, I found this place to be a valuable source of info.

    I apparently asked about putting an Urge II neck on a Fender for 24 frets... I don't recall the thread and looking back now I wonder why the hell I wanted to do such a thing... probably from when I used to play with my shredder buddy who swore by 24 fret necks.

    Put an Urge II neck on Fender Precision???

    I am a hobbyist making stone picks that I sell but mostly give away. They made me do this anyways.

    Mine was a characteristically long-winded intro on January 19, 2010: Noob bassist in NH I did better than @zontar , three people said welcome, though only after three days and two of them are no longer active.

    My first thread on an actual topic was a week later, a "wanted" ad in the classifieds trying to find the cheapest amp that would be loud enough to use in a band (not a cliche question around here, now, is it?): http://www.talkbass.com/threads/looking-for-an-affordable-jamming-amp.622851/ That actually did lead to me buying an Ampeg BA115HPT off a TBer who had also listed on the local CL.

    Amp idea, your thoughts

    Not one reply to my thread!:laugh:

    I joined TB on 9/29/2004 but didn't post until 10/16/2009.....(five year lurker)

    ....never got any of that Ampeg stuff and instead went with GK and Mesa. Glad I did.

    Nobody didn't say welcome.

    My first thread:
    Where's this here wire go?
  17. So, how did the gig with your so work out, @hrodbert696 ? And has your wife come around at all? Balancing it all can be a challenge, I'm in much the same boat, but my wife tolerates a lot.

    @organworthyplayer337 - So I'm reading your out and wondering how it will turn out - and you end up w/ both, that's awesome! :thumbsup: Very surprised I didn't chime in on that one. My vote woulda been 'Ray, FWIW.

    I'll spare you the link to my intro thread from 2007, but I found it interesting to see that I still had the AUB, which I sold about a year later, and then bought my second electric bass, a fretless Wishbass. At the time I also still had the Stick, which I finally traded a year ago after having it for 30 years.

    No activity here until 2014, when I finally was forced to conquer the issues that kept me from playing the Wishbass (Ripper was in the shop) and posted my first real thread:

    Wishbass issues - My approach

    Lately I have been content to eq the Wishbass with a graphic eq module on my Korg PME board, which I normally run instruments through, so I can just tap it on when using the Wishbass. Mostly I shelf down from about 1K-4K by about 15 dB and then boost the lows about 6 dB/octave below 1K. Still using the Carvin humbucking J pickup.
