  1. I have been playing bass guitar for about a year now, a little less than a half year with lessons on that. I am not done learning for sure but theres one thing...lately ive been thinking about how cool it would be to play a DB from seeing some bands i like use them and just i think it is an amazing instrument. and im wondering how i should go about it. Is it much different or a little different from a BG....would i get confused with it and the bg....can someone give me some insight on what to look for on looking for a stand up bass.I would like a very cheap one because i dont have alot of money.Can someone just openme up a little to the world of the stand up bass?thank you all
