And I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Plus my guitar teacher can get me a decent Jazz Bass copy plus a case for about $175. The only thing is I'm already a guitarist already with severe G.A.S., and as guitar is my main instrument, I'm saving for a new amp to replace my crap amp (Bass amp won't be a problem; I'm amazed at how cheap used bass amps go around here), so I want to know from some fellow guitarists: is the extra financial annoyance worth learning bass in addition to guitar?

Hell yes. But I have a nice monthly income, so I might be biased. Maybe you can borrow a bass from someone and try it for a couple of weeks before you decide?

putting the same thread in 2 forums= not cool

i would. im thinking about learning bass. i can play some riffs that i play on guitar and stuff but im thinking about actually learning it. anyway, enough of my useless life stories so i think you should go for it. if you have a job it wont take too long to get that much money back.

Alright then, one last question; Should I get the Jazz Bass copy first and used bass amp first, then tube amp, or the tube amp, then the Jazz Bass copy and used bass amp?

strings are a bitch for bass. (like the price) alothough you dont need to chnage them as much you will notice the money when you do here in oz

i can get a set of guitar strings for $10
while bass strings start at like $40-$50

aren't bass strings like 20-30 bucks?


yeah.

I started as a bass player, I love it. I don't play as much anymore because I've been focusing on getting better at guitar because I'm in a band. But since you're more committed to guitar, I'd get a guitar amp first, then the bass stuff after. Because since you're getting a new amp, you're going to want to play your guitar more, once that love fades, you'll have the bass and be into that.
