    I have been playin bass for almost two years....I want either a 6 string anything or a Warwick 5 string streamer.....anybody want to give me one.....hehe.....anyway what I kinda wanted to ask was does anybody think I'm may be ready for a sixer yet? I know yall are gonna say it's all up to you... or do what you feel is right...but I want other opinions....My skill level is I think pretty high for almost two years.....I can play a lot of Primus and almost every 311 song. Metallica, green day( which takes no talent I know, maybe some songs) so many generic slap riffs it's amazing....blues lines..... easy stuff like that too..... I don't know.....I went and played on one and I struggled a little but who doesnt you know? It's gonna be a little tough to adjust but I think I can do it!

    Depends...do you really feel you need it? It's a lot of extra expense and time for something you might use.

    I don't think going to six is a matter of skill level. It is more a more of style and taste. Most really good players can wear out a four.

    I only switched to five to be able to play in a variety of keys without detuning. It din't make me a better player.

    If you are into chording or lead/improv maybe a six is the right thing. If you simply see it as the next logical step, you may be mistaken.
