Oddly enough, when soloing, I like to play the guitar fingerstyle like its a bass haha.
For fretting and flat picking, there's a huge learning curve. But once over the curve, it's pretty easy. Learning how to make clean sounding barre chords is super beneficial!
Good luck! I got serious about learning guitar after playing bass for a year, and now I'm only playing guitar. Come 1/1/14 my basses will not have left my bedroom in exactly one year.
