I started on bass, eventually going from 4 string to 5, and now a Fretless 5 string. Recently my son had a friend over and they jammed (my son plays drums, friend plays my son's seldom used guitar). I saw the guitar on the stand a few days ago, got curious and went on-line to see some very easy beginner videos on how to play chords and some pages which show chords. I have to say, my mind is not into this guitar way of doing things. I admire guitar players and all the cool things they can do with acoustic and electric guitars, but shaping chords, the thin strings, the shorter neck, just feels weird to me. I'm used to playing notes of the chord, seldom playing any chords on bass. I'm used to the 34 and 35" necks, more weight, deep tone and big strings with ample space between them, and I only play finger style. I found myself being extra cautious with the pick strumming and the thin strings, for fear of breaking something. If you started on bass and moved to guitar, what did you find you had to change mentally (and physically) to enable you to get good enough at guitar? How do you feel switching back and forth between bass and guitar? Did playing guitar change your view and approach of the bass, or your style of playing bass?
