: Hey! i was wondering, im kinda short 9th grader (kinda, ha!) anyway, is it real difficult to play bass if you're not tall? and is there a way to get around that or something?
Maybe you think your question is dumb, but it is not. Your size IS an issue if you want to play bass. However, I don't think it should prevent you to play. Tina Weymouth from Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club is a rather small woman, yet she plays long scale instruments with ease (although she started in a short scale instrument).
Perhaps you should try with a short scale instrument at first, but don't feel you can't play just because you're small. I used to have a girlfriend who was barely five feet tall but she could play some mean bass anyway. Buena suerte and keep your basses up front in the mix,
