After literally decades of wishing I had learned how, a couple months ago I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first bass. I started taking lessons as well, and I'm really enjoying it! I never had aspirations of playing in a band, but if I had known how much tang I could have potentially gotten out of it, I would have started a very long time ago!:bluelaugh: So far I've just been learning some simple bass patterns- blues sort of thing. Eventually I'd love to be able to play more complicated stuff. Anyone have any advice?
