I got my first guitar when I was 3, didn't pick it up until I was 9. Played a couple of years but got frustrated with all the 'want to be' guitar players (I'm sure we all know a few! Lol) so I gave up playing guitar a while. The first moment I knew I wanted to play the bass was when I heard the opening bass line to "Sweet Child O' Mine" kinda lame? Yes. But go easy on me, I was young. I soon discovered the wonders of Paul McCartney and that gave me more of an interest, but it wasn't until I discovered John Paul Jones that I took my bass playing seriously, I started practicing for hours everyday until I could play every Led Zeppelin song. I still practice everyday (not just Zep tunes obviously! Lol) but Jonesy is definetly the reason I still pick up my bass everyday. So what's your story?
