I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

bass is a completely different beast. Different techniques are involved. I've done it though. It takes some drive, and determination to do it successfully though. Good luck!

I was up to the point where i was learning sweeps on guitar, then i started learning bass, and my guitar playing suffered. Granted, i played bass a little more, cuz i felt i needed to "catch up" to my guitar playing skills.

I advise you to go to the Bass forum.

I also advise you to spell advice correctly. (I assume you ment advice in the title.)

I don't think this is the right forum but, I'll give you advice anyway.

if you can play guitar. then learning to play bass will come very naturally for you. guitar and bass and essential the same concept only really difference is bass have thicker strings to allow lower tuning and usually have less strings.

this..

and also bass is "supposedly" easier.. but to be a good bassist, it takes a lot of practise.. I'm not talking from experience mind, but I've played bass a few times, and it's a lot different in plucking the strings, and fretting etc.
