    Since I was 13. That's about 27 years! Oh, Lord.... I turn 40 in 3 months. Just think of all the wonderful years of playing you have ahead of you!!
  3. since i was 16, thats about 11 months now. It seems like yesterday when i went to pick up my bass.
  4. Somewhere between 16 and 18 months, I forget exactly. :p

    Oh, and...aren't there already about a million and three threads about this already? Methinks the 'search' button is up there for a reason... :p

    10 years - since I was 18 years old, so I started when I was older than a lot of you. Mind you, I was in first year medical school then, so I didn't have much time...

    Since I was 15, my mother bought me an acoustic guitar. About a year later I bought an electric guitar, got bored, and 6 months after that I bought a bass. So it depends on how you look at it. I'm just about to turn 19, so you could say I've been playing for 4 years, 3 years, or 2 and a half.

    I first picked up a bass at 12, switched for good at 13, and I'll be 35 in December.
