Hello, I finally decided to buy a Bass guitar (I got a Washbutn T-24 for circa 150£, used...seemed a good deal). Here's a picture of my woody friend I have no former education in music besides what they usually teach you at school till you are 14 (here where I live). I'm 20 now and decided to embark in this adventure. I like all genres and variations on bass, from trash metal Burton's lines, to RHCPs Fleas and up to funky jazzy fusion Jaco and groovy Victor Wooten I made a good choice as first bass? Would I be able at 20 to learn this instrument at a decent level without a properly trained hear / talent? I have no great ambitions (like being a pro musician in any way) but to play basic funky jammy tunes by myself and being able to play decently an high speed song like Battery from Metallica to have fun with friends... I'm planning to take lessons of course!
