: What made you guys want to learn the electric bass?
: The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to decide between buying an electric bass or electric guitar. I've never played an instrument before in my life and I like each one. They are both powerful instruments and I'm having a hard time trying to decide!
: Thanks for any input on this somewhat silly matter,
Hello right back at ya, Here are some suggestions that may help you decide. How do you listen to music? Really listen to music. Do you dance around the highs, hanging on every note the guitar produces? When you hear a song in your head, What part of the music do you hear the most? The bass, drums, gutar? Think about this, what, in a song, attracts you? I listen to music strictly on a bass level. Sometimes, it's as though the guitar were'nt even there. I can recall almost every Steve Harris line, but would be hard pressed to remember half the guitar riffs. Black Sabbath is the same way, for years,(i'm talking about 10) I really did'nt know just how incredible of a guitarist Tony was....cause all I listened too was Geezer! It was me who introduced Geezer to my friend, cause all he heard was the gutar. Ya see, it's all in how you enjoy music. Ask yourself........"what pleases me the most?"..............hope this helped.......john
