Ok, so I'm a brass player, but I'm looking to expand my horizons and learn how to play bass guitar as a side project to keep my sanity while I'm in my dorm at college. I figure the best way to go about this would be to play into headphones, but my knowledge of electrical instruments is exactally zero, so I don't know what all I would need to do that, like can I just plug headphones into the bass or will I need some sort of amplification or could I use my computer for amplification, and etc. If you could give me any advice regarding this it would be greatly appreciated. Also any recomendation of (inexpensive) basses or other things I would need would be helpful. Thanks.
