: I am thinking of buying a bass guitar, Starfire.
: First of all, is this a good enough bass to learn on.
: And secondly, can anyone recommend a site that has diagrams of all the finger
: placements for each chord etc etc. I have absolutely no experience in this kind of instrument (i am a drummer by nature) so it will have to be EXTREMELY basic.
: I would go to a teacher but the closest one to me is over 2 1/2 hours away from where i live. Besides, my mother isn't certain about me sticking with this so she doesn't want to waste this amount of time driving me there if i am no good at it. Basically if i am not good at something i just drop it after a few months (long enough to see if there is any improvement).
: Thankings to ya all.
: Please help me if ya can.
If the bass you mention, "Starfire", is the early or reissued Guild or Dearmond, it should be fine provided it is set up properly.
