Like a bunch of other folks here, I was a pretty decent bass guitarist for years prior to moving to upright. Other than dabbling with it on occassion, I haven't played it in a serious situation in about 8 years. Recently I had a friend who's putting together a new project ask me to play bass guitar for him, and I figured I'd give it a shot. So I pulled the old Fender out and started playing, and I suck now. The music side of my brain functions so much differently than it did prior to playing upright. I went back and listened to some recordings from years ago I did playing some good swinging/walking lines, and sure enough - I was decent at one point. Hopefully I can knock the rust off quickly, and this project isn't rocket science! Anyway, just an interesting experience to me I thought I'd share. Gives me a new perspective on you guys that double a lot.
