i'm a beginning bassist

Discussion in 'Ask Mike Watt [Archived]' started by E-man, Jun 19, 2002.


  1. I am hoping to learn to play bass guitar, but I'm not sure if I would benefit more from buying an acoustic, electric, or electric-acoustic bass for my first guitar. I like hard rock music, but my friends that I would be playing with all have acoustic guitars. Is there even much of a difference between the two? PLEASE HELP!!

    thank you

    i'd say go for an electric, although i've never played an acoustic bass, i reckon the electric would be easier and the sound would be alot better for hard rock, and all you will need is a little prac amp to play with your friends (also you can turn it up and solo over them :p )
