: What made you guys want to learn the electric bass?
: The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to decide between buying an electric bass or electric guitar. I've never played an instrument before in my life and I like each one. They are both powerful instruments and I'm having a hard time trying to decide!
: Thanks for any input on this somewhat silly matter,
your question is not silly at all, neither are minor your doubts. Most of us went through the same thing at some point...
Anyway, the reason I stuck with bass is that in my early teens I was a huge Iron Maiden fan (jeez, I dated myself!) and thought Steve Harris was the baddest motherfucker ever, so I suppose I just wanted to be like him.
Years went by and I went different musical avenues down the road, but everything started with Steve. I'm curious to hear how the other guys in this board got started on bass...
Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
