Hi, I never played bass before, but as a guitar player I know that acoustic guitar is harder than electric and I was wondering if it was the same for bass ? I want to begin playing bass and am having a hard time choosing between the two kinds, what would you recommend ?

Thank you for your answers
Acoustic bass is harder. I own one and I barely play it anymore cause it's uncomfortable to play. It's fun to mess around with outside, but I much prefer electric basses.
I'd say electric. there just more to do with it. I think you'd probably lose interest in an acoustic after a while. Electric just brings more to the table
Get am electric. Acoustic basses are expensive, uncomfortable, and quiet.

Depends the strings, depends on your play style as well. Acoustic Basses in general are a bitch just because of how large the body is but once you're accustomed to it its not a big deal. The tone on an acoustic can be ****in' phenomenal (Nirvana Live unplugged for example).
