Hello all. My name is Jeremy. I am actually new to bass. I have been playing guitar for over 13 years, and am switching to bass for a particular band. The only thing comfortable about the bass is the rhythm part of it. Since I work on rhythm all the time, I can naturally get a good groove going, BUT the picking technique feels SO different, and the size of the frets are intimidating. Other than that I have a LOT of fun playing bass.

I don't understand how people can look down on bass players or why people think they're "too good" for it. This stuff is FUN!!!!!

Also, I haven't yet bought my own. Any tips on what to look for? I know for sure my favorite fretboard is rosewood. But what else should I look for if I want a good sound for metal/hard rock (sort of like BFMV), that also looks real nice? Thanks!!!!

Welcome! Give us a budget for your bass in the Forum Plan thread and we'll think of something. (Probably Ibanez though.)

need an amplifier. Bass amps need more power to drive the lower frequencies so I would get one that has at least 50 watts.There is also a Bass trainer that is pretty cool.

Any ss bass amp under 200w might as well be 10w.
