    I think this is a tehcnique thing...here goes,

    my maw got me an acoustic steel strung guitar for christmas this year, it came as quite a surprise that she had done this as she knows of my love for the bass and that i was planning to purhcase a not so good 1/4 size nylon thingy from argos later on.
    anyway, this has toughened my fingers right up, (on my fretting hand) and has improved stretches already.

    i would recemmend investing in a cheapo guitar. it also helps you to understand music a little better when you play one more instrument and guitar is pretty accessible so why not?

    what are you views on taking this up for a second instrument?

    I think that it is almost essential to learn at least one more instrument. In my basement, I have guitars, 2 keyboards, bongos, a complete drum kit, sax, xylophone, a trumpet, and a bunch of other stuff...it all helps.

    Each instrument that you learn...even a bit, helps you to understand music a lot better.

    I have been playing acoustic guitar along with bass for years. I find it enjoyable and helpful in writing.
