Since my post in the B2B Reviews thread just now probably inspired this thread, I’ll start.

Badass Graduation Date: 3/10/2020!

I’ve exceeded all my own expectations for skill level for having just finished. My big regret is that when I first started, I should have spent more time in the lessons early on and less time struggling to teach myself how to play a few simple riffs from tabs on my own. All those hours spent learning how to play one song could have been put towards learning to how play ALL the songs! Had I been more dedicated I could have graduated this class 2 years ago and who knows where I would be on bass today. Nothing to be done about that now, all I can do is keep playing, keep learning, and keep having a blast. I am so grateful to have this instrument in my life! Thank you for all the kind words and great advice on this forum!

I did start in early Oct 2019.
And I did graduate in early March 2020.

It’s actually been exactly six months which is longer than I’d planned but it’s been an odd few months in life outside of bass playing and I am very proud of my progress. :grinning:

It feels totally weird that it’s been almost exactly a year since I started the course.

Congratulations @BrySquire!

The reason I started this thread was to have a place to congratulate the new graduates. Now, I’m looking to see who the earliest graduate ends up being. So far, it looks like @rolltide1966 has that honor.

I started in September of 2017 and finished in December of 2017, I think.

More like eight months, from what I see above. But where’s my trophy and giant cardboard check? :grin:
