I know, this is a long shot. But I want to know some pointers. Mostly gear wise. I'm a 20 year old bassist, been playing for 5 years, can read notation, tab, have a good ear, Nashville numbers (I live in Bakersfield, so I felt it was needed) and chord charts. I know scales. But my questions are, (probably a stupid question) do I really need to have a P and J bass or is that just rumor? Right now I have a Gibson Tbird, and a Ibanez fretless that I'm modding to have a P/J set up. So, I guess my real question is, does anyone have any pointers for the step in the right direction?
