: : : : Hey,
: : : : Umm i have never in my life wanted or even thought of playing bass until last monday (July 3rd, 2000) I went to a club and saw a band playing and the bass player was a girl, i got totally inspired and now i am determined to play bass, i havent quite yet gotten a bass but i plan on going to a pond shop to get one. On the other hand i would like as much follow up on playing. I have never played guitar or anything, ive been in choir all my life so i know that much about notes. I live in downtown Nashville, so if anyone is possibly good enough to give me some info on this i would greatly appreciate it. I am 15 by the way and wanting to learn bass to mostly play hard rock! Email me or respond and i would love to hear from you...........God bless..........Candice
: : Hey Candice, I would suggest that you maybe look into purchasing a book or video on bass lessons for beginers, and don't get discouraged when it starts getting a bit confussing. Stay enthusiastic and keep working hard. Also, I would suggest you buy a NEW bass at a low price. You would be amazed to know that there are great deals on new bass guittars. By the way GOD BLESS YOU.
: I would also recommend taking lessons from a teacher. Concsiously and deliberately think of any questions you might have about the Bass(write it down if you have to), and ask an experienced teacher. There should be PLENTY of good Bass instructors in Nashville(with references)! If you ask questions from an experienced instructor, you'll learn 100% faster than if you try to figure it out for yourself. You should also have a big advantage, having sung in a choir. p.s. Don't forget, what type of strings you have on your Bass does make a difference in your sound...for better or for worse. And get a Bass (be it new or used) with a straight neck. Good luck and have fun!
: There is a good site that has basses for very good prices. MusicYO.com
That is where I got my first bass. Brand new too. You can get basses
there from 90 dollars to 9000 dollars. I would recommend one of the
