Roll Call - How Many Years Have You Been Playing???

Me? Rhythm GTR 30 yrs. on and off

Bass - 4 years, although I think a lot of the GTR stuff really helped w/my fretboard knowledge

Wasted 26 valuable years of my life playing the wrong dam instrument [smilie=fun_84.gif]

Now ya know why I'm a Bass Tard

Guitar and bass since 1974 (that's 32 years for those of you who are math challenged), although have hardly touched a 6 stringer in the last 10 years.

As mentioned in another post, been playing since I was 16/17 but started taking lessons at 18 and that's when I started to get really serious in playing.

40 years. Played 'cello and guitar for a few years before that.

You'd think I'd be better at it by now...

Started playing clarinet and sax in 1957, then started playing bass in 1963. Much cooler being a bass player in High School than a clarinetist.
