I have been playing the electric bass for almost twenty years and feel that I'm starting to hit another plateau. I was thinking about taking some private lessons again, I took some for the first six years of playing electric. But than I had this idea pop into my head, why not take up the upright? I always wanted to learn it almost ever since I started playing the electric bass, but my parents nor I could afford it on top of my bass guitar lessons. Now I'm older and have the funds to take lessons and rent/purchase a decent starter bass. I want to learn upright because it's really cool and I love the sound, but I also want to advance my electric playing. I have heard that playing the upright really can improve your electric playing. I have read all the newbie threads and understand its no cakewalk going from electric to upright, it's learning a new instrument. I was just curious about peoples experiences who do play both and see what they think.
