Ok, this topic covers different ground so I put this in mic. forum, sorry if I messed up. After four years of playing guitar I've decided to do bass and drums, instruments which I discovered that I actually have FUN with (even when practicing or messing around). With guitar, I did decently technical stuff like I could play: Necrophagist rythyms/solos, almost all Testament material, so basically alot of thrash and death metal. I'm confused as to whether I should get a decent bass (willing to spend 3-500) or stick with something crappy for now only because I don't know whether or not guitar has prepared me better for bass. Do I need to relearn a technique in a different way? Learn new theory? Appreciate the responses (also, if you have any feedback of basses/amps for metal it'd be appreciated).
