What hobbies do you have outside of playing bass or other instruments? I've got a few... Skateboarding - This is #1 for me, taking priority over bass playing for sure. Been playing bass for 1 year, skating for about 7. Bass is just for fun, skating I think I could actually go somewhere with it if I tried enough. I ride every day, trying new stuff and trying to progress in my weak areas etc. Very similar to bass in a lot of ways, such as personal expression and the way you practice. Cooking - I like cooking pastas, grilling meats, baking breads etc. Healthier than prepackaged food and you have more creative control over what's in your food. Cinnamon banana bread? Grilled Salmon and Pineapple? Tons of great dishes out there that are simple to cook. Bushcraft - I plan to live a self-sufficient lifestyle in the wilderness someday. Bushcraft is a term that describes my training. Learning about plants and animals, how to cook and prepare them with a minimal set of tools, which ones are edible, which ones make good medicine, fishing with only primitive gear, how to make fires by rubbing two sticks together, building natural shelters, purifying water etc. It's fun stuff and I love being outside. The woods are so much more interesting and peaceful than a city to me. It's so full of life and changes so much with the seasons, cities seem so dead and cold compared to the forest. Reading & writing - I love me some books. Anything I can get my hands on. Fantasy novels, medieval history, philosophy, theology, plant and animal books, medical books etc. I try to read a minimum of a book a week. I also enjoy writing. Mostly philosophy. Yo Yo's - I was into them for a while back in the mid and early 90's and just got back into them. They're really fun, you can bring one with you almost anywhere and they help build your coordination and dexterity, good cross-training for bass. There are some crazy complex string looping tricks these days.
