Howdy folks. I'm sure some of you have travelled this road before, so I though I would ask... I'm a guitar player, very proficient - been playing for 20 years. I play country in hybrid picking style (fingers and pick together). I've got a thorough understanding of the fretboard, chord structures, scales, etc - that stuff is old hat and is transferrable to bass. So, I have a project studio, and for a most of my songs I've just scored the bass track manually using Cubase score and broomstick bass. Sick, I know. So I thought, hell, I'll just play the bass tracks myself to get a more convincing feel to the song. It straight ahead country that I write, so no need for any slapping or wild techniques, just the normal fingerstyle root-5, or root-maj3-5-maj3 stuff. So, for a long term guitar player like myself, is it reasonable to think that I should be able to lay down some decent tracks (with some practice of course) for my demos? Or is the learning curve really more than you expected? Any of you make the transition, and what should I expect? Understand that I don't want to change instruments, only play well enough to lay down the bass tracks for my recordings. I'd never play it outside of my project studio. Thoughts appreciated.
