Learning To Play
    #4388493 - 07/10/05 01:37 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys. A few questions here.

I'm 21 years old and unfortunately, never played an instrument of any kind. I actually don't think I've ever even touched an instrument. But I have a lot of free time now that college is over with, and I'd really like to start playing an instrument. Since I can't find a good job around here with my degree, I'm going to pack my things and move around the U.S. looking for a job. Since I probably won't know anybody, I figure it would be nice to have an instrument to play and to keep me occupied. I'd like to play bass, but I really don't know a thing about it. Money is going to be really tight as well, so I can't go all out and get a good bass or anything. If I do get one, it would have to be a (really) cheap 2nd hand bass.

So is there anything I should do? Some friends of mine are saying I should try the guitar first, but everyone and their mother plays guitar. Also, how much would a decent 2nd hand bass cost me?

I think that's about it. I just took some mushrooms about 30 minutes ago and am starting to feel the affects, so I'll be around tomorrow to look at the replies (if there are any). Peace.

The lower end of instruments really aren't that bad.  I've had a Squier Strat for as long as I've been playing guitar, which is a while, and it play excellently.  I don't care that it was made in Indonesia and doesn't have the best quality wood there is.  An instrument is an instrument; just buy from a trusted name so you know that it won't fall apart right away.  My strat is still in great condition and I don't exactly treat my guitars like I should :smirk:
