I first picked it up in 1990. I was 16 years old. You?
1967 when I was also 17.
Started in 1974, 14 years old.
I was sixteen when I traded a trombone for my first bass in 1972.
grade 8 band... 1984.
Never picked up an instrument until 2012 aged 45 . Guitars , banjo , mandolin , sitar and a few others .Dabbled with the bass but only took it up in 2019 aged 52 . First gig 10 weeks later . Oh how I wish I had picked it up 40 years earlier .....
1995 at age 28.
I was a drummer up until then. All the local bands had drummers but no one had a Bass player, so I jumped ship from drums to Bass and have been here ever since.
1973, at 16 years old.
1973 [19 years old] Baseball was my thing but wasn't selected at Cincinnati Reds tryout so If being a Major League Ball Player was out; Rock Star was my second choice
1968, 12 years old.
1977 when I was 16.
I already could read music, and kind of picked up electric and upright at about the same time.
Lots of experience in this thread. Respect.
1972, when I was 21.
Well I got my first bass at 14 but didn't know one thing about playing it. So I count 1995 at 32 years of age. I was taught by my son.
I don't remember. I know my parents started me on accordion lessons and my brother on piano lessons in 1961 (I was 9 and he was 7) and I started teaching myself piano, guitar and bass sometime after but I don't recall when. Piano came first and the guitar and bass maybe a year or two or three or maybe four later.
I became interested in bass in the late '50s when my uncle gave us a small record player and a 45 of Jingle Bell Rock for Christmas so that was '57 or '58. I was facinated by the bass walkdown in the intro.
‘72, age 18 I think. It was near my birthday so it might have been 19.
1963 when I was 13. Surf music, Ventures, then Beatles and Motown and many others.
On an actual bass, in 1968. But before that, I had been thumping around on the wound E, A, D, and G strings of a nylon string guitar that had lost the top ones after a half-assed attempt to learn chords, which bore little results.
2010 - Bass & Amp as a “let's give this a try” present for my 45th birthday. Best gift ever.
