    Get a teacher. A real bass teacher, not a guitarist who plays bass.

    Yea bro... take our advice now before you waste ur time and money and end up hating the bass... if you get a good bass teacher (they aren't expensive at all) you will LOVE the bass :) I play the Violin and GUitar and bass is by FAR my favorite
