Hey! I just signed up to talk bass talk! I was woundering how long people have been playing bass and at what age they started. I started playing Electric Bass in 2004 at the age of 10 and am now have distinction in grade 7. In feburary I aquired a double bass and have been playing it for a while at gigs etc (worked out how to play it myslef along with a few helpful tips) So how old were you when you started playing? also is it impressive to have a 14 year old playing bass or does that not seem very young?
