Hello, I have been playing drums for about 27 years, I am actively playing still, Most of the bands I have been in I have wrote all the lyrics and relied on the guitar player to get the sound I was looking for.. I recently decided that I wanted to get the sound in my head out. Via guitar... well after purchasing a nice Dean flat top I found my hands were to big and my fingers far to fat to play proper chords... I know I should try piano... but I have always loved to bottom line... even as a drummer I always hear and remember the bass line in every song I hear... I played Tuba all through high school and collage as well... my question is "Can I eventually write music on the bass?" is it versatile enough for me to explore? I love to sound... I don't think I would have any problem with my fingers on the neck.
