    I've wanted to learn bass for awhile and now finally Have the time. I used to play trombone, but besides that don't have experience with any other instrument. I need a good beginners bass, but one that can still perform well. Also, do you suggest getting lessons or learning on your own? Also, just a fun question....what makes the bass better than acoustic?

    For a beginner is it better to start with a 4-string or 5-string?
