He first played the trumpet

McCartney is best known for playing the bass guitar and singing in the Beatles, but the first instrument he played was the trumpet. His father had performed in a jazz band in the 1920s, playing the trumpet and the piano and gave his son a trumpet for his 14th birthday. However, Paul soon traded his trumpet for the guitar.
