yo. im wantin to start bass. suggestions on a cool/inexpensive model 4 newbs?
yeah......the crazier and more colorful the better. not much of a fender fan myself, but hey i know nothing. suggestions?
Go to every music store in your area and play every bass in your budget. Then pick the one you like the most. If you want more information try searching these forums for 'starter bass', etc.
Ditto...Find a good teacher...gear is gear but we need the chops oh the chops. Spend your money on lessons...
What's your budget? I recommend either a P or PJ as a first bass.
MIM Fender P=$400
I like Washburn's cheaper line. Not sure if you'll find any "crazy and colorful" basses in the $200-$400 price range. BC Rich Warlocks are cheap and look crazy. Ibanez EDA's can be found on Ebay for $350ish occasionally.
BTW: EDA's rule!!!!!!!!
NO!!! No P or Js please! Go with something different! PLEASE! My 2 Cents! heehehehe, no offense to all your fender fans.
Fenders are different in these Yamaha-Ibanez-everything else curvy dayz.
Guys, let's not start this again. I remember my first times on this forum, I was also looking for a bass to start on. And yep, the first things I noticed here were these stupid fender vs everything discussions.
For the TS: like woody and vac said:
1) go to the stores, and don't care about fender or no fender. Once you can play, THEN you can worry about your image
2) take lessons. Maybe you can ask your teacher to go with you. Mine did, and I was glad he was there.
