I think all musicians have a certain instrument that they are supposed to play. I play the piano, bass, drums and guitar but I can tell that I was destined to play the bass... here is my story: I've been playing the piano since I was 4 (I'm 15 now) and I was always interested in the bass. I saw a picture of a bass once when I was in about second grade, and I was like "cool! a BASS guitar." After that, I started listening to music just to hear the bass, and playing bass on the lower 4 strings of a trash acoustic guitar. When I was in 5th grade I started listening to No Doubt and really admired Tony Kanal's style and educated my friends and family about the bass by playing songs like "Different People" and pointing out the bassline. Most of them had never heard of this strange instrument... When I was 13, I got my first bass rig (a squier p bass special and a 12 watt crate with DSP.) I practiced for 5-8 hours a day, and before long I could play pretty much any song on the bass. Then I upgraded to some better gear recently. The main reason why I think I was destined to play the bass is the fact that whenever I doubt the fact that I am a real bass player, I wake up in the morning with some groove in my head and figure out how to play it on my bass, and I am convinced that I must be a real bass player after all... Anyway thats my corny story. I made it sound that way on purpose just to get my point across - I was meant to play bass, man! Do you guys have any similar stories?? Lets hear 'em!
