Hello, everyone. I'm Silent B, and I really want to get into bass guitar. I'm a big fan of classic rock; REO Speed Wagon, Foreigner, Queen and stuff like that. However, I never realized how important bass was or even noticed it until I got into classic prog rock very recently; Alan Parson's Project, The Doors, Pink Floyd and so on. I love the bass in Dark Side of the Moon's "Money," and my friend who has a band has been begging me to take up bass guitar and join his band. They're only into Heavy Metal, Death Metal and stuff like that, which I hate personally, but maybe I'll play with them occassionally and do my own thing or find another band that's into classic and prog rock. I already have 13 years of piano playing experience so I can read music fluently. However, I don't know jack about bass guitars; what different kinds there are, what brands, amplifiers, accessories or even how to play them. However, I know that to start practicing, I have to have one in my hands. Does anyone recomend a specific model that I can buy on eBay that I can use for mostly Pink Floyd/Foreigner kind of music? I'm not looking for a really flashy setup with a prestigious brand name or anything like that. Can I get a good setup for about $300?
