• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Hey, I recommend to start with technique exercises.
Run scales, play arpeggios, and chords to get your fingers moving and your mind focused. As a bass player, developing a strong sense of time is important. Always practice with a rhythm device whether it's a metronome, a drum machine, or a play-along recording.

If your son is learning how to play bass, certainly buy him a Fender Showman amp and a Rickenbacker 4001.

You'll be glad you did.

This thread began 8/11/2008.
The son in question was 11 years old.
It was noted by Thundermtn on 1/20/2019 that "This thread has been dead for 10+ years".
It was noted by 2/6/2019 by miczap "Jesus- what a necro."
Thundermtn again noted on 6/16/2019 "check the dates yo."
On 1/8/2021 garywright astutely contributed "Happy 24th Birthday."
This brings us to your post, a one-year necro of a two-year necro of an 11-year necro.
Think of the kittens, please.
