Oh my... I have descision problems right now. I have posted numerous topics (well 2 at least ) about me bying a new bass. First I was open to almost anything and then I almost excluded the 4-strings in favor of the 5-string basses... Until yesterday when I though to myself "do I really need a extra string?" Well I am very unsecure with what to do at this point. Does playing metal (all from power metal to black metal) really require 5-strings? Probably not but is it a good addition or is it mostly just extra weight? Man I am really confused. I do not play in a group right now but I may have a power metal group thing going later this year. This is just a desperation post. What are your thoughts on this?
