: hi all!
: i am wanting to learn to play an upright bass but was told to start out on an acoustic bass guitar.
Who told you that, someone that has no idea about the differences between
the two vastly different instruments? That suggestion is ludicrous. If
you want to play string bass (upright) then learn to play that. Suggesting
that someone who wants to learn the doublebass should start on acoustic
bass guitar is as stupid as telling someone who wants to learn to play the
violin to go and learn how to play the guitar first.
