Hi all, I'm in the process of shopping around for an URB and am definately going to take the plunge on something decent probably within the next month or two. I have played fretted electric for 12+ years and even studied music in school. Not to mention all the lessons, and live gigs etc... My question is how hard will it be switching over to the URB after all this time and effort on the fretted electric? What are the big obstacles? Obviously the intonation will be a big factor..and it's going to take a bit to learn the whole new fingering techniques. That's really my main thing is the technique..as I said I've studied music and know it well..it's just a matter of bringing it from the electric to the UR. I play jazz and afro-cuban/latin. Though I hate to say never I don't see myself doing anything major on the orchestral side, so bowing might not be a factor right away..but who knows. I'm also in the process of hunting down a good teacher to get me going on all this so if anybody knows any names in the Tampa/St. Pete area in Florida feel free to let me know. I can't wait to get started. It isn't like this is the first time I've wanted to do this but growing up my parents certainly couldn't afford to get me an URB, and through college I sure couldn't. Now I'm in the position to finally enter the "dark side" as I hear some of you mention on here. Thanks.
