Alright, I just had a simple question or two. For one thing, I wanted to know if you would consider a bass guitar easy. That is not the reason I long for one, but I do wonder because people talk of them like they are nothing. For two, I was wondering, I guess this is sort of a rhetorical question, but you should more than likely start with a 4-String, huh? And last but not least, I always wonder if it is too late to start. Look at all these success stories and the story goes: "I have been ____ing since I was 5, or 7." No one starts anything this late in life. (Haha, only 16, but still. Seems as if I should have started years ago to master it now.) Of course Mark Hoppus (Blink 182 and Plus 44) never toutched a guitar until his father bought him one when he was 15. But then again, he's no god among bassists either. Thanks, Peace, Colton.
