You just bought the bass because you thought, 'well if I want to be in a band, nobody ever wants to play bass, so there's my chance!'. Well actually that's what I thought when I considered playing a bass guitar. Currently I can play no instruments whatsoever. I still have a set of bongos that grin at me whenever I approach. They know all too well I have no idea how the bugger I should play them.
Well I've been playing guitar for about 8 years now. I picked up a bass around 5 years ago. Using the knowledge of guitar playing, the bass was easy. Making a transition from bass to guitar is much harder though.
Plus it's a little strange that I play right handed guitar but I'm left handed with a bass and drums. I started playing right handed because I learnt from a friend. I couldn't be arsed saving up for a left handed guitar to start on. So I just used his and got used to it. But on a trip to Academy Of Sound to pick up some new strings, I picked up a left handed bass to have a dabble with.
