I'm sure this has been done before but just out of curiosity. Just wondering what instruments u guys played before bass, and if it inspired you to play another, and if you stil continue on that instrument. I played piano for about 5-6 years when I was about 7, then took up trumpet in 5th grade up until the 9th in school, and found myself focusing on bass guitar just before I "gave up" trumpet. I fooled around on upright in my latter high school years during theory class, and would love to take that up. I dig out the trumpet every now and then as well as give a shot at the piano. I feel good trying to play songs, improvising using a different medium. I am also inspired by Bela Fleck to pick up a banjo and learn, but my main focus will always be bass.
