I was thinning the herd of all 4 strings as I don't do studio work anymore, and when I did it was only because my best friend, our lead guitarist, requested my position on the track, citing years of playing together was something special. Well he is long gone and Talkbass had no taste for my 4 String Precision, so I traded it for a American Standard Telecaster on Craigslist. I am hoping to learn enough to teach my twin 13 yr old grandsons the guitar, and maybe if we learn together they will stay with it through their adult years. I have countless basses they can learn bass on, but the smaller scale neck of a guitar is more suitable for their reach right now. They each have jr. Strats, and acoustic amps gifted at Christmas. My question is, how many Talkbass members are accomplished guitarist's and does the training on guitar improve their bass skills. Any thoughts?
