I should be getting my first bass in, hopefully, a few months. (even though I'm still not sure what kind to get,heh) but anyways, How should I begin to play? My band teacher(she also plays bass) said that I should get a Three Quarter bass,and I should begin with a 'red book' and just learn the notes. But I have a question: Which technique should I start out with? 'Cause I've heard of plucking, slaping?, plunking?, and like a bunch of terms (I probably have some of those messed up..heh..sorry, I'm still learing) What do you suggest? Thank You!
