How did you get into bass playing?
hahah that sounds cool
what's the band called
Back in ‘97 I made a friend at a new job. We talked music, he said his band needed a bass player. I’d been tinkering around with guitar for a bit at that point, nothing serious, but I pulled a Nikki Sixx, lied my ass off and told my buddy “Hey, I play bass, no problem” – even though I'd never laid hands on one in my life – just so I could join his band. Bought a Fender bass that weekend, spent a few days learning some basic stuff, then faked my way through our get-togethers for a few months until I actually new what I was doing. After about a year, the other guys in the band said “Man, we need a rhythm guitarist.” So again I lied, said “no problem,” bought a six-string, became the rhythm player. Now here I am fifteen years later, and I've made the move back to bass. Didn't realize how much I'd missed it, and am surprised at how quickly I've re-adapted to it.
I wanted to be just like Geddy Lee hahaha!
When I was around maybe early 14, I had first laid ears on Primus. Absolutely blew me away! One day, my older brother gave me an acoustic bass. Boy, I was happy! I'm 16 now, and have been playing for 2 years. I'd say my biggest influences were/are Les Claypool of Primus and Flea of RHCP.
I now play in a band with my brother, and my friends say I'm very good. I'm not too good, I just play Get Up And Jump and it impresses them a lot haha.
I started listening to GunsnRoses and got obsessed with Duff Mckagan's bass riffs,and after listening to Nirvana,RHCP and Metallica.I convinced my Dad to buy me a bass.I love playing bass,although alot of people in my country dont understand the importance of bass.I still love it and am looking forward to join a band.
Initially I got into bass because guitar had gotten too boring for me… I begun listening to Héroes del Silencio and Iron Maiden… now Thanks to bass, after just 10 months of playing I got meself a job in a local metal band… If any of you wanna hear covers of mine or some of my new material, jus' tell me!!!!
sure steve, if you have youtube videos of your covers you can post them in this forum
