Introduce Yourself!

Pretty cool live video of the most recent Gang of Four bassist breaking an E mid-song and just keeping on trucking an octave up :slight_smile:

String breaks about 20 seconds after that timecode.

It can still take at 53, I think. I will let you know if it took for me in a few years.

Just joined the site but I started B2B a couple of weeks ago. I’ve dabbled with bass for about 4 years. Been using it with Rocksmith the entire time. I was taking lessons before a relocation in 2019. Add in some basic sight reading I picked up and I’m not a 100% beginner but I’m not far off it, lol. Looking forward to how B2B will push my learning forward.

Rocksmith is really fun and I love playing it but I couldn’t jam to save my life. I have no idea when left to my own devices on what sounds good etc and wouldn’t want anyone else to suffer through me trying to figure it out.

I’m joining the 50+ crowd in here and really am just picking up bass because I have always enjoyed the sound of it the most. Love music you can feel, lol. No aspirations to jam or gig, just want to get proficient enough to have fun. Maybe play some stuff with my wife if she picks up piano/keyboard again :slight_smile:

I also think learning an instrument will be good for me in the long run. The whole use it or lose it thing. It keeps the mind active as I get closer to being an actual old fart :wink:

Hi everyone, I’m Sara. A few weeks ago, my best friend and me were talking about how life is too short to not do the things we always wanted to do if they’re within our means. So here I am! Both my wallet and my heart are lighter and I’m really excited about finally getting to play one of my favorite instruments. I played the flute when I was a kid because my parents wanted me to pick something more portable than a bass or a cello. They were working a lot and I had to go to my music lessons on my bike.

Anyway, it’s time to tackle the infamous Billy Jean. :sweat_smile:
