    I know,I ask a lot of questions.I'm sorry for flooding the board with them :(.

    Should I learn acoustic guitar (an entire new instrument,for I have never ever ever played a guitar in my life),or should I buy another bass? (this one will be for slapping).

    Go for the guitar. I don't see why you'd need a new bass just to slap. Unless you just want another bass.

    I'd say go for it.

    Get an acoustic bass you're welcome.
  7. I think you should pick up a guitar. Learning more than 1 instrument will only benefit yourself as a musician.

    No reason why you couldn't pick up an acoustic bass another time.

    Get a bass. I bought an acoustic guitar instead of a bass awhile ago, and now it just sits around unused...maybe it's just be, but I can't seem to stay interested in it.

    Ukuleles, on the other hand, are awesome. I would highly suggest purchasing one. Maybe I just like things with four strings...

    I say get an acoustic guitar. A cheap 100 or so dollar guitar will be great! I bought an acoustic guitar a few months back and it was only $100 and it's pretty awesome.
