Hello all, After reading up on the swimming speed of bass fish ( surprisingly fast!) I finally ended up here. I also discovered it might be illegal to play a fish, not even mentioning the potential smell! I am an absolute beginner, I don't even have my bass guitar yet ( a hand me down from my brother) so I don't know how many strings I will have to deal with... Or if there is am amp included... I plan to try practice 10 to 20 minutes a day during the week (weekends are busy, I might have to take up bass fishing..!). I plan to start learning from YouTube videos so any pointers are welcome. I promise to not waste too much time on bass fishing videos. I was also wondering if there was not a sort of effects box I could plug into and listen on headphones, I think some kid in school decades ago had something like this, I think it was programmable for different effects. Anyhow, I hope to be making some horrible noises followed by perhaps a nice fish stew soon!
