I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but I'm gonna try it anyway. Also, if this is the wrong forum, I'm very sorry.
Just post whatever interesting stuff that happened/you're doing/etc. to your instrument! Conversations will progress. Anyway, that's enough.
I just found out last week that my bass strings will cost $50. I got so pissed off. I never got a job for the summer either and now I don't know if I can afford a new bass and amp. This sucks! :(
