Jason, I think a squire is a very good beginner Bass. If you are interested in any techniques, you should start with a simple book on scales. Here is a simple twelve bar blues scale that not only is good exercise, it kicks ass in any blues song. Start on the E string 5th fret then play the A string 4th fret, A string 7th,D string 4, 5, 4, A 7, 4, E 5. Get the basic pattern down and you can play this scale in any note. If you have any Questions E mail me!
