Has anyone here ever noticed that most bassists (at least the bassists that I know) have a certain kinship with drums? When I was in high school, I was in the band and I played bass 99% of the time. But occassionally when the drummer was out, I would fill in for him and let my teacher play bass. Thing is, I never picked up a pair of drumsticks in my life before that, and I was still pretty damn good. I wasn't going nuts with fills and really busy stuff, but I was able to hold down a good solid beat without sounding like a robot (I still gave it my own bit of spicing up, but it wasn't anything crazy). And then just 2 days ago, I got the chance to play some drums again for the first time in almost 2 years, and I can still play just as good as I could back then. So my question is, does anyone else here have the same thing? Do any other bassists share this natural-born talent for instrument swapping?
