Well, I ordered my bass, bass amp, copy of David's book, strap, extra strings, etc. I now have everything EXCEPT the bass, it went on backorder. So now not only can I not play bass yet, but I have all this new shiny stuff sitting around to constantly remind me just how much bass I'm not able to play right now. Woe is me.

By the way, David's book looks promising, but I guess everyone already knows that by now.... I mean, it IS David.

I empathize with you .. I have the book, but nothing else yet :-) I am really sorry to say you will be a few weeks behind in your bass playing for the rest of your life :lol:

I just bought a used bass, should show up in a few days. I have not ordered an amp yet, I think I have everything else I need (tuner, strap etc..)

You can do a lot of reading in davids book and learn a lot even without a bass... a great deal of it applies just as well to guitar... all that stuff on closed position playing is pretty handy on the guitar too... course I tend to do most of my music readin at work without my bass (someone might notice I'm not working if I had that with me) so I might be used to that.

My bass finally just arrived!! I didn't think it was ever going to get here. I had been playing some on a friends bass at his house, and reading david's book after work. Now I can put the two together, finally, Yay.
