I got my bass at last. And I played something resembling the beginning of smoke on the water. I am in love with this sound. Anyway I was thinking, am I too old to learn bass? I am 24 and I have no note based music background, all I have is some percussion background. No matter what, I am determined to play it. Cos even if I just hold it in my hand and finger the string, so be it! I'll be happy. I guess I wonder what you think. umm.. yeah thats it.
