  1. Yes I know it's a stupid and completly useless poll, but I was bored, and for some reason I figured out that I've been playng bass for about 44% of my life.

    So, how many % of your lives have you guys been plaing bass?
     
  2. WOO HOO.....It's my first poll! :D

    If you count the time I played guitar before switching to bass, 53.57%. If you want bass only, it would be 35.71%.
     
  7. Just under half, cos I fisrt played bass when I was 10 and I went from there.
     
  8. Since I've been playing bass since I was 13 and I'm 26 now... easy math.
     
  9. I started bass at 17 seriously and 6-string guitar at 6. Dumped the 6-string when I got the bass (I get confused with more than four strings :D ).

    I'm turning 34 in four months. so, 50% is good :)

    I still don't think I can play anything :p
     
  10. It not such an useless poll.. It puts together 2 polls in one. "How old are you?" and "How long have you played bass?" but in a more objective question.
     
  11. I started playing around age 13 or 14. I'm 22 now.

    I'm guessing around 72.Started at 12 or 13 yrs,played drums for a year or two before that so the times run together.I'm 47.
     
  13. 102%.

    If you happen to find yourself in the womb, the umbilical cord can be stretched out and twisted around any impromptu tuning peg - your neck for example. Then you have a submersible one string bass!

    I didn't touch the bass again until I was 19, sure, but that's a mere technical detail.

  18. I am turning 21 in 17 days!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I have been playing guitar for only 1 year (EXTREMELY POORLY) and bass for like 4 months...so that would be...uh....um....uh...like 1%??????? I lost the ability to do any math in my head since I got to college:D :rolleyes: :eek:
     
  19. 44%. Started playing when I was 14. I'm now 25. Actually I like this poll. It's a new way of looking at things.
     
  20. Maybe I should add that I'm 18 and that I've been playing bass for about 8 years.

    thats about 44,444444444444444% :D
