Well,its that time of year again.Christmas, a time that brings out the best in all(just watch the people flipping each other off in the mall parking lots over parking spaces...lol!!)
Last April,Uncle Sam had been good to me, so the wife and I purchased a computer.As she is able to sit at home and learn all about it, I'm still a rookie 8 months later!(boy,learning bass wasnt THIS hard!!)
Anyway, at some point, I discovered this message board.It didnt take long to realize that I had come across a gold mine.There are lots of great people here, sharing a lot of valuable information.Even though I have been playing for almost 21 years now,I'am continuing to learn a lot of valuable lessons.Its too bad we didnt have this back when I first started.The one thing I have learned about bass players over the years:most are very kind,and considerate people.Many an older and wiser bassist was willing to help me out,when i was a 12 year old boy just learning how to play.In fact,at my first party gig(still 12 years old)a friend of my older brother let me use his new Jazz bass,and Acoustic amp!What did he ask for in return?NOTHING!!
Well,Ihope that all of you guys and gals have a really nice holiday.I have the utmost respect for all of you who are out there bringing music into other peoples lives.To Robby Gardner,(did I spell it right?)you have given us all the greatest gift with this site-giving bassists from all over the world a chance to come together,and learn from each other.
Peace,and a happy holiday season to all!May 2001 be a great year for us all!
P.S.Hey Kenny,we will defineatly have to go fishing this coming year!
