Hi all, I want to thank EVERYONE for helping me. You are all so cool and this forum is great as well...Lot of awesome information!!! However, I need some advise...Only this time it's not about what kind of bass should I get or theory....Let me explain: I have been a guitarist for 6 years. I have a great teacher who has helped me become a good guitarist not a great one but good one....I practice all the time... Recently, or should I say a year ago my teacher who is also a AWESOME bass player (totally respects the role and DOESN'T play bass like a guitar player) told me that I should start studying bass seriously as there is more demand for GOOD bass players... Here is my problem I can physically play bass, but I don't know if I have the HEART of a bass player....Don't get me wrong I love bass and totally respect it's role in music....But I don't want to give up guitar playing either. There are some days were I will say YEAH, I can totally dig being a bass player and then there are days where I am still a guitar player listening to Jimi Hendrix, and flamenco music, etc. I did a lot of soul searching and I feel that the reason why I want to place bass is to be able to play in a band with others. Here in AZ, there is more demand for GOOD bass players....But is that a good enough reason for me to play bass... When I listen to music I hardley never say wow, that low end is awsome...I more attracted to what the guitar is doing...However, when I learn the bass lines on my bass I can dig that too.... Alot of friends and family know me a good guitarist not a bass player.... Is it possible to be good at both instruments and not worry about having to give up one to get good at another instrument.... I usually have two hours a night to practice and what I do now is practice an hour of guitar then an hour of bass.... P.S. I am not one of these guitar players who want to show off on bass....I have nothing but HIGH respect for bass players..... Thanks for reading and I hope to get some insight...Maybe even from some guitarist who have turned to playing bass.....Kalo!!!
