Hey ya'll, I was just wondering when all you ppl out there first fell in love with the four string mother ****er? How old were you and how long did it take you to get serious? I was wondering this cuz I wanna see if I'm a late bloomer or not. Here's my story. I got my first bass just over a year and a half ago at the age of 16. I intantily fell in love with the low end sound. After about a year after I traded in my Epiphone EB0 bass (I bought it for looks only...I was young, I was stupid!)and bought my current Fender Jazz Bass which I customized and it has yet to disapoint me. Just rencently me and my best freind finally got a full band together (a four peice with Two guitars,one on vox, Drums & myself on bass). I've been taking music lessons ever since I got my first Bass and really, really love playin' .I can't imagine a single day that would pass with out me strapin' on my Bass and rippin' out a Tallica' riff or two. ANyway, nuff bout me,I would love to hear some of your guys stories, I'm sure their alot more exciting then mine, lemme hear em'!
