Hey Everyone! Just thought I would chime in. I am an x-drummer(10years) who has decided on playing the bass. I have always had a facination with the instrument. I would be in the studio playing(the drums) and thinking that I couldn't wait to listen to the bass player dig in. So why not start playing myself. I was wondering - At what point/ level of knowledge/ playing ability/ etc ... would you suggest starting to play with others? I am too old to hang around with H.S. kids in a garage after school, but need years to get to the level of entering the studio and wanting people to play with me. Tough call ... What would you suggest that I learn in order to prepare so that people will be interested in me as a bassist? Thanks so much! Peace - Keith.
