Yeah, just wondering how many people picked up the bass out of need to play in a band, because no one else wanted to play it, or, those who just picked one up and loved it, or, both. mine was a litle of both, belive it or not, i was going to play guitar for the band (Had been playing guitar for about 4 years, dont hurt me, please...) but my friend said he would pick up the guitar. well, i went to get my first bass, i had never touched one before i ordered my ....kramer...focus or somthing like that. well anyway, when i pluged it in,,,,o man,,,you couldnt get me away from the groove thing if you wanted to. its also good that i got the bass, seeing as me and the drummer are the only ones in the band with a sence of rythem. (I write some of the beats as a matter of fact). so, tell me why and how, and how you felt about it (Bass).
