I was a guitar player until a month ago, then I decided to buy a bass. Being a newbie, I have a few questions , please me! 1. Is Washburn XB100 a good bass for beginners? 2. How much time can I go with my guitar amp Washburn BD12? (Because I couldn't afford a bass amp, they are pretty expensive ) 3. As you can guess, I have some difficulties playing my fingers and more confident with picks. Can you suggest me some exercises and songs which strengthen my fingers and improve accuracy? (There aren't any bass books in Turkey, so I really need this) Thanks!
