Hello, I always wanted to learn bass and I finally purchased my ESP LTD B-50 beginner bass . The problem I am facing right now is deciding whether or not it is possible to become a pretty decent bassist by just practicing on headphones? I am going to be moving into the city in a few months and would imagine that playing bass on an amp, while living in an apartment building would not be a good idea. So I actually have a couple questions: 1. How likely is it to become a decent bassist while only practicing on headphones? Do you recommend any specific gear for that? 2. How many of you live in apartment buildings and still play with an amp? How do you manage not to disturb your neighbors? Oh, and also: Hello to everyone - I'm new here .
