    I don't have any basses. My weird gear addiction is amplifiers.

    Funny, I've never had any interest whatsoever in learning guitar. Tons of people have. Maybe it's cheap to get into (compared to other instruments)/easier than it looks to at least get the basics working.

    You mean Okie makes noises with a guitar and looks mean.

    I have a lot of fun at being mediocre.

    Nate Dogg, you only get to make requests live at a fly-in. I prefer to decline in person :D

    I have one guitar (I’m a drummer/percussionist) and I know the generic 7-8 chords. Terrible about chord transitions and no calloused fingers due to infrequent play. If it’s a g,c, d, e, or a-chord, I got ya covered. Others need not apply, lol.

    I play jailhouse style - behind a few bars, hoping to find the right key someday.

    You’re most of the way there.

    If you’ll add on the basic E-shape and A-shape barre chord forms plus learn the pentatonic scale (5 notes) you’ll be able to play simplified versions of most popular rock and country tunes without sounding like a complete hack.

    And if you add in Am and Em you can play every country song written.

    That made me laugh out loud! And I'm definitely reusing (sounds nicer than stealing) it!

    I never said that weird was bad! It's better than all of the bass player jokes about "bass player shows up at practice, says 'hey guys the buddy I was borrowing my bass from wanted it back. Do any of you have a bass I could borrow?"

    Stop worrying about barring the B and E strings. Just play xx321x for now. It’s still an F chord (F A C), will sound just fine, and is easier to play.

    But but I wanna barre! I can do Fmaj, but I wanna barrrrrrr!

    Oh, and I wanna trade my classical for a bass. Started on bases in '67, Unc Sam called, and resumed learning in 2013. So, I like to tell peoples I been playing for 50+ years, what's a little white lie eh? so what if I had a 50 year break.

    Well, if you add the F chord to your stable , you can play about half the songs ever written.

    edit: Oops. Should've read the rest of the posts. F and Am chords have already been covered.

    The trick to a barre is to roll your forefinger slightly so you’re using the hard, flat side of it rather than the fleshy fingertip.
