Re: Does any one play another instrument
After 16 years of focusing everything on drums I picked up the bass about 2 years ago and play more bass than drums at the house. I still play drums in the band and practice drums quite often, but find that trying to learn this other instrument has helped inspire things creatively in my drumming as well. It definitely takes away the staleness of the "plateau" everybody experiences from time to time and is actually quite enjoyable. It's going to take a long time for me to get band worthy on the bass, but learning is the funnest part if you ask me.
p.s.- James Jamerson is my hero (my bass hero, that is)
