Hi I'm new to the forums and I'm thinking about learning to play the bass. I would really eventually like to play the guitar and bass. In middle school I played in the orchestra and played bass, but haven't really had much to do with music since. I really enjoyed playing and now have the time to play again. I do not really know anything about either the guitar or bass other than some knowledge on reading music and just a bit about the two instruments. One of my main questions are the differences in the guitar and bass and if you were going to play both which would be best to learn first. I think I would enjoy bass better because of it's sound and the fact that I have big hands and find it kind of difficult on the guitar when I try and play. Would the bass be easier for me? Really I'm just looking for some help. Also what would be the best way to approach learning a new instrument?
