I've been playing acoustic for awhile now and am thinking of switching to bass guitar at least for a little while. I grew up playing mostly classical type stuff and prefer picking to playing chords, so I thought I'd give it a try. I want to try to play with some friends in a little over a week. Of course I don't expect to be great, but I'd like to be OK. I know some of the songs we'll be doing, but for a lot of stuff I'll probably just be given a chord sheet with lyrics (I know how to sing all the songs). I know some very basic music theory and how to read sheet music. My rhythms not the greatest, though, unfortunately. Any suggestions for how to prepare and get the most out of it in that short time? I hope to practice somewhere between 1 and 3 hours a day, probably in 45 min-1 hour chunks. I could probably spend some time outside of that reading too if there are any good books or articles out there for beginners. Thanks!!
