: : I actualy play guitar normally but Im thinking it would be cool to try it for a little while. Is there anything about bass that is very unatractive? i.e it is very fucking hard to get good tone and requires lot and lots of practice.


: Yes, on both counts. If difficulty and practice are unattractive to you, don't waste your time.

Agreed - it IS hard to get good tone and DOES require lot and lots of practice.

Make sure you have access to a decent instrument - not necessarily something really expensive - but well set-up...good bridge in proper adjustment, good strings, decent bow. School basses are especially notorious.
