    I have been playing guitar and bass since 1973. In my first band we had 2 guitar players so I was the one that transitioned, but then I was always drawn. Steve Vai once said he was drawn to guitar because of the white pigtail cord on Danny Partridges bass. I was drawn to the tuning keys on a relatives Fender bass. So for several years I went back and forth between bass and guitar. In the 80's I played in an 80's band (which back then was also known as a Top 40 band ;) ) I was also the lead guitarist in an original band 10-12 that placed second in a regional battle of the bands and received airplay on the east coast. That sadly ended with a fizzle...in 1991 my son was born and I played dad for the next 13 years until he became a teen and I got the itch again. I got new equipment and joined a very well known show/party band. They in this case told me that they needed guitar more than bass. So for the last 8 years or so I have been playing guitar for two different show bands, and once again I am getting the itch to return to bass playing. When I watched the Jaco documentary it convinced me. So once again I am immersing myself in the finest bass playing videos and can't wait to jump ship and start playing bass again in a band!
