I play bass guitar.
I had a friend who had one and let me have a go, then I decided to see what I could play.
I did have some lessons, not formal music grading or anything. Just went down to a guy’s house and he showed me how to finger the notes and scales and how the progressions work etc - kinda interesting in a geeky kinda way.
I really like The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the music has some really interesting bass lines and is fun, and also rocks!
This was me doing a play-along to Madness from a few years ago, tehehe
