I would like to ask why those of you who have changed from another instrument to bass guitar have done it. Why did you say goodbye (did you?) to your previous instrument? And what was your instrument? As for my self, I used to play classical guitar but there has been a few years interval now. So I pondered whether to start again or to do something completely new. I've always had a secret passion for BG and just one day I felt that now the time is ripe! Walked to a music store and bought a Fender Jazz (it is so lovely!!!) I believe that I can benefit from my earlief experience, for example in terms of technique. But the bass clef is turning my hear grey!
