I think most of us, as kids, when we first become aware of music, dreamed of being a rock star. But, not just a rock star, the guitar playing front man and BL. This site is full of talented professional musicians, intermediate players and beginners. But we all share a love of playing Bass. I am curious as to when and why each of you determined, or discovered that Bass was the instrument for you. What was the draw that lead you to play bass? For me, I was hyperactive, and drawn to playing drums, which I did for many years. so when I decided to expand to a new instrument Bass was the natural choice, after so long sharing the rhythm between the drums and the bass.
