Well, after a bit of research I went ahead and purchased a bass today. A Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass to be precise. And, well, I'm very pleased with it. From what I can tell (and this isn't much), it appears to be well-made - not to mention, good looking. Also picked up a el-cheapo Behringer Amp (45 watt) which should get me off the ground. Anyway, I guess my question is: where do I start? I've got limited experience with both the Piano and Saxophone, but this is my first guitar, or even stringed-instrument venture. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position now where I can afford tuition (I'm a full-time student, etc.). However, I'm willing to put in the hard yards and teach myself as much as I can. What I"m afraid of is, if I teach without guidance, I will most certainly pick up some bad habits, which, may be difficult to break later on. So, how should I go about this? Are there any grail-like textbooks going around? Online tutorials? Etc.? I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to start, so I thought I'd ask you guys. In the meantime, I'll have a proper search around this site.. Cheers!
