Myself, I started on guitar and switched to bass when I was 19. I've played both in different bands but for a long time considered myself a bass player. I gave up playing in bands when my daughter (now a college freshman) was born. Since then I have been playing mostly acoustic guitar and have become somewhat accomplished at finger-picking.

Like you Smack, jazz, fusion, progressive rock, singer songwriter stuff, plus a heaping helping of stuff most people will actively avoid listening to, like they play in the middle of the night on my favorite radio station.
Bruford is awesome. No doubt. Then there's Cobham, Phillips, Greb, Royster Jr. - and on and on...

Have you ever heard of M-Base Collective? Cool stuff.
