: hey, i need some help here....i want to start playing bass. I live in Canada. and im wondering how much will i need to spend to get me a good but cheap bass.... I'm also wondering should i play 4 or 5 string and whats the price difference if i do?
: If you guys can help and give me any tips when i go out to buy a bass, (what to look for, what not) it will be alot of help...Thxs..
Well, I don't know how expensive are musical instruments in Canada but my bass (wich I bought four years ago) was about 300$. It's an Ibanez with four strings and I'm very happy with the sound it has. i'm considering on buying a new one because I want a five stringed one but I won't sell the Ibanez.
To start I think that doesn't matter the number of strings of your bass; although you'll do better if you start by a four stringed (because there are less notes to learn and less strings to get lost in!)
Good luck!. Hope to hear good news from you soon!!
Enjoy life as it was your music!!
