So... any of you guys play any instruments?
I play mainly bass guitar and a bit of guitar too. I started off playing classical and Spanish guitar when I was a kid. I got an electric guitar when I was about 16 but lost my way with it, and I was too preoccupied playing rugby at that point, before I got injured and had to quit. A couple of my mates got a band together and were looking for a bass player - they knew I played classical guitar and wanted a finger-style bassist so they came round with a bass and said 'try this' and I was hooked. I've been in loads of bands and written loads of music of my own and with others. I've just got into a band playing rock cover tunes and a sprinkling of original stuff, which should be good fun as I haven't gigged in years.
