Hi, I am a new member to this forum, and to the world of bass guitar but I am willing to learn how to play. I am tired of sitting around in my house when I can't skate due to the weather or whatever else gets in the way. I am deciding if I should buy my friends bass guitar, an Ibanez, with a 20 watt amp for 120 dollars. I'm not really looking to buy a great bass guitar because I'm a beginner and I don't know how to play, so if anyone can help me on this and offer some insight I'd be grateful. I have some questions on my mind that I would appreciate some answers for: 1. His bass guitar is a right handed bass. I am a lefty. Since I don't know how to play guitar or bass, period, would I be able to learn how to play with his right handed bass? Or is it mandatory for leftys to play with left handed basses? 2. Is an Ibanez with a 20 watt amp good for beginners? I am not looking for something spectacular for my money, I just want to know if 120 dollars is worth the items listed above. 3. A bass guitar is bigger than a guitar, so does a persons height, stature, or arm length matter? Would I have problems playing if I am small?
