I used to play a pretty fair bass guitar. Haven't been able to play a lick since brain surgery...
Sorry to hear that. I haven't picked up my bass or electric guitars since surgery a couple of years ago. Just sitting in the closet waiting to be played. Maybe I'll get motivated again one day.
Hope you can get back to playing your bass one day as well.

Don't worry.. there is no such thing as too long. It took me 18! years to get the guitar back out of the case and start over :)

Good for you!
I know the 'bug' will hit me again one day and I'll irritate my neighbors with all the noise :)

I can count about 6x responses with affinity to rhythm guitar stuff here, I 100% thought it might be only me here. Guess not. Nice to have some comapny.
To make it 100% clear I just suck at anything music, not 100% suck technically as-in can actually replicate much nicer stuff (but not fit for any publication) but have enough self-knowledge to keep all jams very private indeed

Also so many guitar responses too. Almost nothing really piano-related though as well. I can do very very basic piano, if ever needed and it's quite nice to do as well. I would pre-suppose that quite a few can also do Piano as well

I learned to play some chords on the guitar.
I quickly learned that it is not much fun to play the bass alone. I jammed a few times with people, root and 5th on the bass will allow you to fake your way through many songs, especially if you have a drummer you can sort of jump in with.
So many people good with a guitar that I'd be embarrassed to even try to play around most people.
I did enjoy playing a Yamaha synth and could have got into that.
I mostly picked up cheap guitars to play with. Fender Squire strat and tele knock offs . Best basses I owned were a blonde Fender Musicmaster--my first bass and it sounded awesome through my 80 watt amp. Also had a Peavey Fury with solid oak body--loved it but weighed a ton. I have a Jay Tercer red strat right now that I like. But I generally never spend lots on guitars. Used to have a nice pawn shop downtown and I frequented it :)

As a change from all the guitar players, I have been playing the trumpet and cornet since about 1959; learnt at school, kept it up despite being a Medical Student - difficult to practise when working in hospital, the patients and others don't really appreciate it, so I used to go out to my car in the car park at lunchtime and practise in the car. Since then have played in many amateur symphony orchestras and brass bands.

Yeah I can imagine that is a hard instrument to practice on!!

The old neighbors had a son who drummed. Every day from 18:00 to 18:30 he practiced. And we did the dishes at the same time, it was mutually beneficial as he wasn't bad at all :)

You may have to start all over and relearn if so inclined. Just like people that have to learn how to walks again after an injury. That would probably be a good exercise of your brain and help your recovery too.
Can't. My right arm doesn't behave very well. I have tried, but unless it's all hammer notes by my left hand, it doesn't work. But, I'm only 62, I have plenty of time to keep trying...

Plenty indeed. You prove that bod wrong and do it.

Playing the guitar hurts me quite a bit at times, with my collagen issues, but.. I want to be able to SO badly that I tell my bod to go beep itself ;) hahaha
