I'm not very good. In fact, I'm not good at all. I'm pretty raw and new. But I know that I'm a bassist because: 1. I love playing both my basses. 2. I no longer have an interest in my guitar or picking it up again (not that I never will) 3. I want to know the instrument inside and out. I want to master it. 4. I listen to the bass the music I have on, sometimes ignoring everything else. 5. I'm committed to playing my basses.
