Default OT: Playing guitar, playing bass

I've been playing electric bass for about 15 years now. I started on an Asian-made Fender Squire 2 four string bass that my father bought me as a surprise after he had heard me talking about some friends who played music, and that the bass interested me. Fast forward to my current Warwick thumb 5, Pedulla 6, Wilfer custom upright. Well, yesterday I picked up an accoustic guitar and a chord book and started running through progressions. Actually, "running" is probably as inappropriate a word as possible..."crawling" would be more accurate.

This experience has shown me a few things. First off, I have great respect for guitarists . It also made me want to go play bass. IMMEDIATELY. Finally, it made me realize how much I've been taking for granted all those years I spent practicing, working, doodling, writing, etc. on the electric. Never again will I assume that it's a given that I will always be as good as I once was or am now without practicing, or that I will always have the use of my hands. It kinda put things into perspective.
