Hey guys.
I recently bought an Epiphone Thunderbird and am happy with it.
I also decided i wanted to get serious with the bass.
I've been given a lot of good sites to help me with guitar, and they have.
I was just wondering if anybody knew of any good sites to get started with Bass?
thanks!

If wanted to get serious with the bass, why did you buy a Thunderbird?

it's better then the one i was borrowing from my friend, some brand never heard of and it sucks. This one plays like 20 times smoother than that last one. so i'm happy with it, thanks you very much.

In your eyes I see the darkness that tourments you, and in your head where it dwells, I'll give you my hand if you reach out and grab it, let's walk away from this hell.

I really want to sig this.

Judging from your post, if you play guitar and know theory then a lot of your basics for bass are covered. The only things that I can think of that you'd immediately need help in would be technique which is covered in some lessons on this site I believe. If you know theory, then learning songs is probably your best bet in learning the instrument.

Agreed. I think we have quite a knowledgeable bunch. So we have personalities and opinions? It just makes it a bit more interesting.

For technique and theory, for me a teacher was vital. As I've said before, some people do well with the webpage/youtube/book route, for me I need the human touch, esp. to correct bad technique and also help me to push to the next level in playing.

And there's list of books buried somewhere 3/4 of the way into the FAQ thread btw. .

Chris, you know I put that in there just for you.

The other site I would recommend not for lessons but general knowledge is the companion site to studybass.com: http://www.tunemybass.com.

Check my edit. I just made it so much better.

To keep my posts vaguely topical and ensure I make sense, I'll back up what people have been saying.

As a community, we're a fairly knowledgeable bunch on most areas of bass playing. If you have a specific question to ask, we can help you out.

You can post in the FAQ to ask questions. However, make sure you search before you do ask us. Your question may have been (and probably will have been) answered before. We're all beginners once.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
