Beginner count? I've always loved the bass, but just recently was able
to buy one and start messing with one. I am a trombone player, so I
read bass clef. Not really serious about it, just having fun playing
it.

I can say I am a beginner even though I have been playing guitar for more than
60 years. The first epiphany I had was that the approach is NOT the same but,
I thought it would be a great tangent during the pandemic. In as much as you
are focusing on rhythm and harmony, what an excellent approach to theory! I
have to focus on the beat and stay away from melody. Technique is not the same
if you stay away from using a pick. I could say that guitar is more like
singing and bass is more like dancing! So far I am humbled by how much noise I
make from the strings I do not intend to hear because I am not damping them
properly. I have much respect for the accomplished bass players. So I have had
a dose of reality, it's not a piece of cake but I am intrigued so I am trying.
Now jumping from trombone is is challenging but you already sight read. I have
to plod through this as well.

Yes, but not regular. Guitar is my normal instrument, but I've
played bass in country dance bands before...

Currently playing acoustic guitar as accompinament at church
and my wife is playing bass.



... Can I blame my spelling on Line Noise?

We are all beginners - just some of us have been beginners longer. Smile

I refused to ever play bass with a pick, so I didn't have to 'unlearn'
anything. Smile

I play bass like I play 'rythem guitar' - that is, with runs and such
(big bluegrass background). I CAN keep a straight beat, and if the song
calls for it, sure, but I like to 'walk' a two step or western swing.
Smile Fun stuff!

I have a friend from my teen years who played bass in a rock band. As an adult,
he progressed to bluegrass guitar. Now in his 60s, he has a band who was
nominated for an album during the pandemic. His name is Roger Cline and his
album is "So Inclined" and can be found on Amazon. I'm quite impressed by the
individuality of the songs and the production. It's gives me hope that we can
still pursue our dreams as older adults.
