They say learning a language is a way to re-wire the brain on a cognative level.
Learning music (especially if you get into theory and reading music) is like learning a language (with math).
This is one of the reasons I picked music back up as I have grown older, brain exercises, the other for therapeutic reasons, and the rest, cuz it is just flat out cool.
I am sure you can do it all with a little more focus. sounds like you have worked a little, kind of aimlessly, like I did in my youth. Now, picking it up, I decided to get focused, and this is where I came to do just that, so you have found the right place to accomplish your goals.
Wow good luck! hi i’m on module 8 even though i chose the slow route. been doing this for a couple of months. have fun and make mistakes thats how i learnt.

o/ Hi everyone. Decided to take up the bass because I’ve always wanted too and I feel that it’ll help with exercising my hands. Recently diagnosed with early onset Parkinsons and if I don’t learn to play now, I’ll have missed my chance. Looking forward to chatting with you all.
Welcome @Roughneck94, that’s great you’re getting on stage so early in your bass journey! Was just watching a funny Jack Bruce clip where he suggested learning on stage instead of in your bedroom so you get to have fun and get paid while you practice.
Welcome @LauraKlinkhamer, congrats on your confidence breakthough, happy to have you here!
Welcome @crippledring, this is indeed the right place! You did make your post a reply to someone else’s though, instead you can press the arrow in the toolbar on the right (bottom left of this image):
Or scroll all the way to the bottom and hit the orange Reply button. All good!
Welcome @TomS, congrats on limiting your GAS to one bass so far.
Welcome @Luther, have fun with the course!
Welcome @ArcaneK9, best wishes with your Parkinsons, maybe the bass grooves can fight it off a bit.
Great idea, it is great therapy, physical and mental.
Welcome aboard @resolve2,

Thanks tazette83, I feel welcome already! I’ve got an Ibanez TMB100K (seafoam), I’ve had a a lot of fun trying it out so far. I mostly listen to rock and a bit of blues music, I quite like the psychedelic style too.
Welcome to the community @Luther!
Hello all, I’m Richard from Wales UK.
Used to play bass in bands in my late teens/early twenties but fell out of the habit when I left uni.
Fast forward to my 30’s and I picked up a new bass on the insistence of my wife. It was an Ibanez k5, which I still have a love/hate relationship with.
Since then I’ve gradually practiced, and was a patreon on josh’s other youtube channel for a bit. I play mainly at home with a minimalist home setup (monitors/audio interface etc) and occasionally jam with guitar playing mates.
I recently made myself a promise to practice everyday, and so far I’ve stuck with it. Here’s hoping this community helps with that!

You will get the motivation to keep pushing yourself once you get into the B2B course.
