I am considering trying to pick up the bass again...but, this would be my 3rd attempt. A few years ago I bought a good beginner bass (Ibanez GSR 200) and even had 1:1 lessons. The lessons were okay, but it got expensive for me. Honestly, I didn't get too far. I was pretty much just practicing scales. I ended up selling the guitar after it sat for a few months. A year later, I bought another beginner bass and tried again, but this time on my own. I figured I'd practice more since it was during the shutdown. Unfortunately, I didn't. I sold this one too. I regretted it, but I also didn't love the bass. It was an off brand (Mitchell) and didn't produce good sound. Here I am again...wanting to try again, but also a little embarrassed since this will be my third attempt. My wife will likely laugh a little at me. Anyone have a similar story? Any tips on sticking with it?
