I've been playing music for over 5 years. I originally started and learned most of what I know on guitar. I played bass on and off throughout the years, not taking it very seriously. However lately, I've been borrowing a very nice MIM Jazz Bass from a friend, and I haven't taken my hands off of it ever since. I've been playing along to a lot of Rush, working on my finger technique. I have been having fun giving bass guitar more of my time. It's like learning a whole different instrument, but I'm not completely at square one. Is this merely a phase or a transformation?
