I've been playing guitar for 9 years. Last year, I started developing a bit of an interest in bass. This year, I started listening to Rush and then I decided to spend some money on a starter kit for bass. I bought a Silvertone starter kit 4 months ago. I really love playing bass, more than I love playing guitar. After I got the bass I got some Rush tab for it. Well anyway, I feel like I am not doing a good job. Sometimes I feel like I'm doing alright. Most of the time I feel like I'm really bad at it. I like to play songs and play some improv on it every day. I usually play for more than 5 minutes a day. I like playing with a pick, because it sounds too quiet for me when I use my fingers, and it brings out a nice, piano sound. So what can I do to get better? Should I be practicing for hours more than usual? Or try getting better at using my fingers? I'd definitely like to improve a lot.
