I was seriously considering picking up DB (i've been wanting to for a long time) but the problem is I live in a very small town and no one plays DB. So that means I have no teacher. I had a teacher when I picked up electric bass and he does know a little bit about DB but not much. Then I came to this forum doing some research and everyone says you NEED a teacher. Should I just not bother to get a DB now or would I be able to pick up enough pointers from this forum to get some of the techniques of playing?
