I played sax as a kid until Jr. high and was pretty decent but I stopped playing because I went to Christian school and playing the stuff I heard on the radio was taboo. I had no clue about jazz or all of the other possiblities. Fast forward, I'm 30 and I hear this guy playing sax and he is just killing it. The guy was Kenny Garrett and he was on Marcus Miller's album Live and more. I went out the next week and bought a saxophone. After really listening to the album I bought a bass. Unfortunately, the bass sat. Sax is my first love. Then I heard this guy Oteil Burbridge........ on that bass day 98 video with Victor Wooten. I went to see him live a few years ago, with Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey. The dude kicked his shoes off and just started to express himself on a very serious level. It was a "spiritual" type of experience. I'll never forget how incredible he played that night. It took me a couple of days to digest it all. That is the night I new I wanted to play bass. Datsaxguy (Datbassguy might be more appropriate one day) What made you wanna play?
