I'm feeling the bass more than a guitar.  I watched two videos of each being played and I'd liked the Bass better.  One problem that makes me hesitant to get one of the two is the fact I have no musical experience.  A guitar(both bass and regular guitar) looks hard to play.  I don't think I'd be able to do it or if I did I will suck so bad.  Is a guitar really hard to play as it looks?

Well, it's hard at first, but if you work at it, soon it will come easily to you.

the only reason i say bass is boring, is because they dont solo nearly as much as guitar, i still like bass

But, I still like guitar better, i have 2 guitars and my freind has a bass , and im glad i have the guitar and not the base

It's not like you are expected to play like Hendrix (or Pastorius, depending on the instrument) as soon as you pick up the instrument. It takes time, but in the end you are greatly rewarded.

Not to mention, guitar and bass are pretty simple instruments to learn.

Well I'm still deciding whether or not to get a guitar or not.  But I decided if I do that I'm going to get a Bass guitar.  This is the one I chose

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=bass/search/detail/base_pid/508160/


I have to say I'm a little nervous because I won't really know what to do with it.  Luckly their is a guitar shop that gives out lessons five minutes away from my house.  But after lessons I won't really know what to do.  Can you guys please give me some reasons why I should buy it?  The guitar is on sale so I don't have much time to make a decision.  Thanks guys

Personally, just making contact with my bass and playing it (not much more to do) gives me great joy. Whether I'm playing someonelse's work or messing around with it and creating something original, it is never the same and I never get bored.

Not everybody wants to be a rock star, but there are still many good reasons besides looking at playing as a career option.

-It helps keep my mind off petty problems I'm facing. If it's a big problem I'm probably writing about it. :-D

-Reading notes and trying to get the right hand positions has made me more attentive, not only when playing but in general.

-In the long run it's probably going to be cheaper than spending hours in front of the tele or playing your Nintendo.

-It's one thing to listen to your heroes play great music, but to play their music gives you a whole different feeling. A bit euphoric sometimes.

-Helps you meet new people you might never have met if you didn't share a common  interest in bass or playing music. A jam is always a nice way to get together and enjoy your time.

-THE OPPOSITE SEX DIGS IT!!! :-D

Maybe I'm stupid or something but what does that mean? lol

Anyways, I picked a bass guitar a long time ago. I have the VB Rogue bass that was on that link I posted. Saturday(The 12th) was actually my very first preformance infront of an audience. I  have to say wow! It was such an amazing experience! I was so awesome! After I was done random people came up to me complimenting me on how good I was and got a lot of compliments for my bass guitar. It was such a rush to be on stage and playing(I played the Red Hot chilli peppers-Suck My Kiss) and just feeling so damn cool. I read all the comments on this thread and realized I've come a long way since I made this thread. I had one comment that actually said "I'm afraid that if I pick up the guitar that I'll suck horribly at it" and wow this was not the case at all. I don't want to sound arrogant but I'm always getting complments on my playing and my guitar teacher was actually confident in my to let me play with him and his band on saturday. I can't wait to be infront of an audience again ;D

Well, the sequence is:
(for the chorus - - two bars each)
E  G
E  G
(for the verses - two bars each)
E  G
E  G
E  G
E  G
(and for the middle eight - two bars each)
F  G
F  G  E

Yep, a belligerent song ... but don't judge a song for the chords! Tomorrow Never Knows!  ;)

Thats pretty frickin awesome. E, G and F were the first chords  I learned. We all know that 'Tomorrow Never Knows' is an awesome song ;D Oh and thanks for the compliment and the future one too when I play again infront of a crowd later on in the future. lol
