Being Bi-Guitaral

Why did I say that?

I've played both guitar and bass guitar since my early teens. In a band I'll be on bass, but for my own entertainment I'm picking up the guitar more. So I'm relearning by ear and experiment all the things I ignored while I mastered bass. And believe me, they are two different concepts and attitudes in playing.
