I want to get a bass to mess around with. I don't really need new bass but have some money and think it would be fun to get one. I play mostly rock and blues with some metal stuff so all I need is a 4-sting but have been thinking that something like a 6-sting might just be fun to play around on. I have played several 5's and dont have any problems playing them, but I am not sure about just going for a 6. for people that play basses with 6 or more strings do you find them difficult to play or just different. just considering it thought I'd get some opinions. I was going to get a 5 but then figured that since I would just be getting it for personal enjoyment mostly and not band use then I might as well for for a 6.
