I am hoping to start learning the bass guitar in the future (when i have some spare time and the money for a bass guitar). I currently play piano and enjoy it alot but also really love the idea of playing the bass guitar. I often listen to a song and humm the entire bassline accompanied by some air-bass lol My question is, what i can do in the meantime till i can buy/hire a bass and start actually playing? What kind of bass/amp should i be looking at? (Brand, Model etc.) I want to play some hip hop bass lines, (mainly westcoast - Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac), funk (Bootsy Collins), blues/blues-rock (Led Zeppelin, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy). So any ideas? Any exercises i can do? Anthing!?
