Nope, no one at the moment that are just starting the instrument. There is no current noobs in the world of bass. There is Only people who have been playing for over a year...

/sarcasm

through my experiences, I count us all beginners... for we have all but touched on what bass may do.

I didn't know we had any philosophers in UGBass, I though we were all loud mouthed jerks who except no outside criticism.

If you count 2 years as a beginner, I guess I am.

My child, aren't we all but beginners in the game of life?

As far as bass is concerned however, I am a master.

so you can create a groove in all styles past, present, and future, while standing on your head, with a t-bird?

I think not, Master Nut.

I would consider myself a "three-year" (not beginner, Semi-pro, etc.) bassist, but yes there are millions.

That would be a horrible idea. Even upside down, the T-bird's neck dive would hit you right in the face.

More importantly, what makes one not a beginner any more? Is it a standardized set of exams, number of years playing, quality of grooves as judged by Jaco Pastorius at the fiery gates of hell?


pfftt, Jaco was a n00b.



But as for everyone being a beginner, I totally don't agree. No one is perfect, but John Entwistle, Jaco, Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, and tons of other guys sure as hell aren't beginners.

Is it only me that gets annoyed when people insist on saying how long they have played guitar. Don't you people realise this is the bass forum and your guitar playing prowess, as good as it may be, dose not impress us....

I'm about a year into bass now, so yeah I'm a begginer

Master Nutter practices the ancient art of Shakubuku bass playing (it's a philosophical branch of arcane bass knowledge). Its when you receive a swift spiritual kick to the head that alters your reality and bass playing forever.

I think getting clocked in the face by a T bird neck while playing upside down qualifies for a master in that discipline.

And yes, I'm still an acolyte in playing bass having only played 2 1/2 years. I hope to reach my next level by the end of this year, and each day brings additional skills. Its just how life is!

Typically, someone playing a half an hour a day for three years is less of a beginner than someone playing an hour a week for 10 years.

And threadstarter, assuming this isn't a hit and run (which it currently is) thread, judging by your thread content, yes, there's at least one beginner here

I started on a T-bird, so the neck dive has turned into awkwardly raising the neck on other basses. So, I forsee myself smacking myself in the face at some point in the near future. Also, I am a beginner. But I'm apparently not that terrible at bass.

contrary to my join date i am no noob....i've found however that playing fast doesn't mean you're any good. knowing theory is much more important than being able to mash random notes out quickly. if you know theory, you can mash out notes fast and make it sound good!

I've been playing a year and five months, but I think I'm more towards the intermediate side. Playing guitar for two years before definitely helped me with the jump, but it was indeed a new instrument.
