    Howdy, Y'all!

    I'm a keyboard player with an interest in bass guitar, and plenty of time on my hands thanks to COVID-19. So now I'm working on toughening up my fingers, learning bass! It's great, and I'm learning how to play convincing bass lines on a keyboard (I'm in a band with no bass player, so I play left-hand bass and right-hand piano/etc)

    Peavey Unity 4 string, passive, charcoal grey, bought new in 1994
    Teton acoustic/electric 4 string, bought new in 2020
    on order - Godin A4 Ultra SA
     
  2. A keyboard playing the bass lines ? I know a band who did it (greatly):



    Nice basses you got to begin with !
     
  3. I've considered buying one of those, the original guy in The Hollies played one.
    I just can't imagine playing bass with a pick which due to string spacing seems a must.
    Anyway, back on topic, I always thought if 4 was good enough for PC and Jaco, its more than good enough for me. ;)

    You can play the Bass VI with your fingers, it just takes some adjustment. But they really come alive with a pick. I use a pick on mine and have LaBella DTFs and Staytrems on both...
