I've been thinking about it, only I wouldn't be able to play bass, because I can't read sheet mucic. I might joion on alto sax though.

I play bass in jazz band. It's a good time. The basslines are interesting. Playing bass also helps my finger strength and dexterity.

I played bass for the jazz band at my old school. I loved it, and got away without having to read music. Never really liked jazz before, in fact I thought it was terrible, but playing in that band really broadened my musical horizons.

I switch between guitar and bass for my school jazz band. Learning jazz theory and learning to read both clefs are great things.

I started playing this year. My friend played in it for the last 2 years (3 counting now, we switch off for some songs), and I had the feeling "If he could do it, I could do it!"

Oh boy.

It is fun, I love it, wouldn't drop the class for the world, but it scared the crap out of me that first day. I walked in knowing a couple of what I thought was "weird" chords, but he handed me a song and said "Play this." Of course, it had chords I had never seen before. So I'm still learning. It takes a lot of patience and work, but it's worth it.

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.
