: : Hello,
: : 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,
: : Stephen
: Hey there,
: 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,
: El Pájaro.
I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU WROTE THAT........I thought Steve and Iron Maiden were the greatest.........lol(can't believe I just said that) Much like you I slowly drifted into other music. Now I listen to Marvin and Aretha.
