: yes but. i wanna play current rock songs, like from limp bizkit, and papa roach and stuff. and their bassists hae 5 strings. so shouldnt i get a 5 string? Cant i learn the first 4 strings and when i am ready move on to 5? cuz i dont wanna have to buy a whole new bass. thanks for your time guys
The fact that they play fives does make it hard to play thier stuff on a four...although I've had some succes with taking every thing p an octave on my four. As to learning just the first four...Your welcome to try, but It's like trying to learn to drive a car without using the gas pedal...it's not gonna happen. I'd say go for five, but get a good quality one (not nessecarily expensive, just good quality) And definitley stick with a 35" scale. Learn it as a five. If your going to try and emulate other's playing styles, you actually have to play like them...
