    Hi all. Thank you for having me! I have been playing fingerstyle classical, jazz, blues and folk guitar as well as rock and progressive rock for over 25 years. Recently, after years of consideration I've decided to embrace long love of the bass guitar and study it exclusively. Other than here and there I've barely even picked up a bass guitar. Any advice on method books achieving proper technique as to avoid developing bad habits commonly associated with switching guitar to bass would be appreciated. And again, thanks for having me.
