: Howdy.
: 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.

An invaluable web site for a beginners is http://www.libster.com/
