I recently decided to learn how to play guitar, so I bought a strat and I've been learning to play it fingerstyle. (Mark Knopfler being my principle example.) So far, learning the guitar has helped me simplify how I fret for different bass lines: instead of doing complex hammer-ons/pull-offs, I can just fret a chord that puts me close to everything. I'm also learning when it's alright to play a chord on the bass, and where I can do it on the fretboard without it sounding muddy. It's pretty excitingprobably just the fresh start I needed! Have any of you guys had this experience? If so, do you have any suggestions for what else we can learn about playing the bass through playing the guitar?
