Its my suspicion that good or really good bassists just have more in-born natural talent than the rest of us. I play quite a bit (about 10hrs a week) yet I'm still a hack. I have a family so I cant invest more time than that. I know over 100 songs, but I get the feeling that most bassist here on TB are much better than me. How many hrs a week do you have to play to get "good"? Whats the talent to hard work ratio? (ie for me its about 90% hardwork and 10% talent).
