Hello, to begin with I'm completely new with the subject, but I would like to learn to play bass, so I want to buy one. I've made some research and I am quite confused about the differences between the p-bass and the jazz-bass. If someone would tell me the difeerences at the sound and the way of playing I would be gratefull. I know that this depends on the music, but from my research to what kind of gear have my favourite bands, I got only more confused ! As they are using both kind of basses.. The music that is interesting to me is kind of: The Cure, smashing pumpkins, placebo, radiohead, pearl jam, joy division, lacrimosa, deine lakaien, deus, smiths and stuff like that. So I'm not interesting on classic rock or thrash-black-grind-death metal.. Thank you.
