Howdy all! I've only been playing for 2 months now on my straight from Indonesia Squier P-Bass, and I have a question or two to ask of you guys/gals. How long did it take you guys/gals to start playing full songs? I mean the actual bass line of the song, vs. hunting down and playing chord roots / root-5ths. I'm not looking to do speed-metal, but songs like "What Is & What Should Never Be" by Zeppelin, and moving into Iron Maiden tunes as my skills progress. How long did you wait before you replaced your first axe, and how far up the chain did you go? I played enough basses at Guitar Center to know that my Squier P is a piece of crap, but right now my skills are crap too. Thanks a bunch for your thoughts.
