Records, 8 tracks and cassettes. Yea I'm old.
Poker. But I can't keep the required face. I tend to have the "I am digging this really deep face". Just watch the Scott dude or the Warwick endorser from Colorado on youtube So played bass to pair with my facial expression.
Drums. Specifically a log drum..
Before the bass, i learnd piano in my my music school.
Well, main instrument of choice before you picked up the bass... So, which instrument was your main one just before you switched to the bass being your main one...
Your path to the bass is pretty cool. Lots of experimentation.
What did I primarily play before the bass? Football (or "soccer" for you foreigners). Pretty well, too.
Bass was the first and only instrument I ever wanted to play. After I'd had one a while, and picked up a bit by listening to records and playing along by ear, I took guitar lessons for a couple of years to learn more about music and technique for a fretted instrument, but bass was what I played at home (when I should have been practising my acoustic lessons). I do still play a bit of rhythm guitar sometimes, with friends, but not in bands and never for money.
Bass clarinet. Guess I like low notes.
interesting poll. a lot of wind players.
i played tenor sax all through high school, and then bari sax, then tuba, and finally string bass. i dabbled with electric bass and guitars all throughout though since my dad is a guitarist.
Started on trumpet as a kid, played it for 20 years (lead trumpet, semi professional). Started playing bass to back up the juniors in the school band I was conducting. I had to practice a lot on the trumpet to keep up, and I didn't have the time to do it. Bass was easier, much easier. Then I bought a double bass, and now I have to practice a lot again. Now i actually have the time to do it.
Classical guitar, ages 8 to around 19. Then I had a two year "break" after being severely disillusioned with the instrument. I picked up the bass guitar for a few reasons. At the time, it appeared to me that it was the closest instrument to classical guitar in terms of technique. I also wanted to play with other people. Lastly, at the time, I really liked Mick Karn and Percy Jones.
Ten or so years later, I still think that classical guitar "training" helped me a bit with fingering, especially when playing fretless, although I feel that plucking the two instruments is vastly different. I also fell out of love with Mick Karn and Percy Jones, and grew to appreciate more subtle material. Oh, and playing with other people worked out too, including pop, jazz standards, playing alone behind a vocalist, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
My only regret is that I didn't give up on guitar earlier.
Didn't NZF use to be NZSA until 2007?
Ah, well, I live in New Zealand but was born in England, so... I've always called it football, except for the years I lived in Australia, when mentioning "football" in conversation would be assumed to be AFL.
That explains it
I played Football, and Xbox!
Sometimes even Football ON the Xbox!
picking up the Bass Guitar is one of the best things I’ve ever done, I couldn’t even imagine my life not being a bass player!
(But I still love my football...
and my Xbox...
and football ON the Xbox!)
Played flute in grade school. Mastered "Mary Had a Little Lamb". Threw it all away to pursue bass in high school.
piano > saxes > bass. studied each.
i felt it was time to hide my identity.
Did you play bass over Macho Grande?
And did you develop a drinking problem?
Violin from 4th to 8th grade, Trombone from 5th grade through college. Sang in school and church groups from age 5 on. Picked up bass at 15 right before 10th grade.
Chess, soccer & doctor games with my neighbor's daughter; then i went 13 and played bass only ... later guitar & drums as well.
