Alrighty, heres the scoop. Im deciding whether to buy a guitar or bass. Can you play bass solo for an extended period of time? I don't know how early I could get into a band(could be a long time, maybe right away, who knows), and I wouldn't want to end up stopping because i wouldnt be in the mood ever to play by myself. I'm saying that just because bass is more of a group type instrument from what I know(more than likely wrong, lol). Also, if I do decide to play bass, would the squire P-bass special be a good first purpose? I read that the neck is a lot better with the J, and my hands aren't the largest. Would that guitar work good with most types of music? I'd play mostly rock, but not metal or heavy rock. Thanks ahead of time.
