I started playing bass about a year and a half ago, but before that I played guitar for 7 years. I got a bass as a way to start a band with my friends, thinking it was close enough, I could learn. Of course I did learn, but I found out how different it was, and it became my main instrument, I got into bass way more than I ever did with guitar, possibly because of this site. And we never made the band, but oh well. I'm just wondering how many other bassists out there used to play guitar too?
