I've been playing bass for about four months now, and I usually practice from an hour and a half to three hours a day, depending on the amount of free time I have. Since I do nothing during the summer besides basically sit in front of a computer or go to the gym, I was thinking of getting a guitar too, and maybe playing a few hours of each everyday. For the past few months I've really gotten into music, and I even signed up for orchestra next year (upright bass).

Would it be a bad idea to play both instruments at the same time, or is it fine?
It wouldn't matter at all. I did it before

well, they're not too different from each other. Go for it!
