Hey everybody, I finally got my first bass and want to really start playing it. My question is where should I start? I know I should probably get a teacher, but the closest one is a good 45 min away. Other then that what should I do? Should I just find tabs for songs that I like and start playing them? I feel like I wouldn't learn anything if I do that. What about just trying to learn songs by ear? I don't know if this will work well, because I don't even know most of the notes on the fret board as well as scales and chords and stuff like that. What about books? Thanks for the help.
