    Man you did luck out Ant. I started playing because we only had one! Bass player among all of us and he couldnt keep time to save his life. I played Guitar for 5-6 years and I did! not! want to play Bass. But I sucked it up for a couple of jam groups we had and fell in love. That was 96 and I never looked back!

    Very cool blurb! I started playing guitar with friends when we were teenagers (we all learned together...but I soon gravitated to the "lower side" of life). I have been in many bands (all genres) over the past 38 years and I think it's due to playing an instrument (bass) that most don't initially gravitate towards.

    Time to practice....Peace!
