I need help with Bass basics, i just got signed into a band class, and am just starting bass... i need to know some picking methods, how to read bass clef, and if i should have long nails to play bass... I usually play fingerstyle on acoustic

You'll probably find better information in the "Guitar and Bass Basics" forum. Most bassists don't use their nails.

As said, do the Basics forum.

And about nails: They'll give you a... twangy, metallicy sound. Not in a good way. I clip mine super short, beyond the skin. <_<

Are you playing electric or double bass? Most bass players that are in band use double bass.

nails are bad. as said they give a bad metallica twangy sound when you play. also you dont finger pick exactly like you do an accoustic. you use your index, middle and later on, maybe your ring finger

Since when? Depends what genre you're talking about.
