I'm having this issue, I want to expend my range so of course im looking at a 5 string to solve this problem. But im doing a lot of chords and slap lines lately and i know id eventually want a 6 string. So would it be a good idea to buy a 6 string or would that be a bad idea? It kinda seems to me like i should learn on a 5 string and then work to a 6 string, but i thought id ask the TBers. So what do you guys think and with your oppinions give me a good beginners bass to look at.
