How old were you when you started playing bass?
I was 31 when I started. That was 6 years ago.
I guess it was "a bass."
It was a detuned Sears Silvertone guitar without the B & E strings and nails I drove into the peghead so I could angle the strings and detune it to the bass notes.
I started at 13...
Im 34 now...
Wow... 21 years!! Has it been that long??
First bass was a Peavey Patriot LOL!!!!! Now I've just put in an order for a Conklin 8 string!! My how times change!!!
I started at age 26 - that's been one of my favorite things about this site, before I came here I thought people started playing music in there teens or not at all. It's good to know that there is nothing strange about starting out when your an adult. That is actually the age bracket that I'm most interested in hearing about. Maybe you could modify your poll so we can see what goes on in the 19+ catagory?
I started a little less than three years ago. I was 36. It's never too late.
I started at 23, and only because my band couldn't find a bass player in our area.
Started at 17 really.....glad I started now rather than later in case I couldnt be bothered..or before I got tied down with kids and a job etc.
I started taking guitar lessons after I got my first guitar on my 7th birthday. That was 40 years ago. I switched to bass sometime in my teens.
Started playing bass in 1969. My first bass was a Teisco FB-1 my Mom ordered from the Speigel catalog. I'm lefthanded so I had to change the strings around.
Started at age 17, been playing for 26 years, currently age 29.
I was 10. The year 1972. You do the math. My first bass was a violin shaped Silvertone with an Epiphone amp.
I started when I was 13. I'm 15 now. It's been about 2 and a half years now, and of course, I still suck.
I started when i was 9, my dad gave me a Peavey fury on and a peavey Scorpio combo on my birthday, march 16 1988, it's been almost 15 years and i still have my old bass.
I started right before my 13th birthday. I am now 14 years and 2 months old. Started out with some Jay Turdser P bass copy. I'm already on my third bass! (Ibanez BTB405QMBB)
I was 16
i was 16, now I am 19 and everything is changed. I want to go on to see how much my way of seeing music will change in the years!!!!
It was 3 weeks before my 18th's b-day and I bought a bass on a whim with graduation money . One of the smartest things I ever did. I can only think of about 5 days I haven't picked up my bass for awhile since that day, and 3 of them were on vacation .
I was 18; I'm 19 now. I played (and still play) some horns for years, and I wanted to learn bass but was always busy with the other stuff. My freshman year of college I decided I needed to make it happen, so I withdrew some money I had for years (I was a boring and somewhat thrifty kid) and turned cash into a used MIM Fender J and a nasty sounding little Ibanez amp. If I can get better and maybe play with more people more often, I'll be able to justify buying some nicer gear.
I started at 13 as well... for me that was in 1966. I traded $100 and an ElectroVoice 664 for the '57 Fender Precision that I still have - my first "real" bass.
