How many of you started on guitar rather than bass? or any other instrument? I read some threads and feel sorry for everyone "stuck" playing a bass. I had a guitar for at least 2 years in college and it never left the case, literally zero times. But as soon as I touched a bass I knew it was meant for me. I haven't put it down since and have played almost every day for the last 21 years. I've never even thought about playing a guitar. I've picked one up just so i'm familiar with its workings but that's it.
