I've been playing guitar for a few months, and finally decided to switch to bass. I just ordered my bass today. Any tips for a new bass player?

Any useful and/or practical tips about playing bass?

ha, no, dont go back to guitar. Learn some exercises so you get used to stretching your fingers across all the frets(not ALL the frets, just 4 at a time, u no what i mean :P), thats the hardest most annoying thing about bass. start off slow and dont get frustrated and giv up when someting doesnt work straight away.
Gd luck!!!

Once again...read the FAQ. And if you have any specific questions regarding bass, come back and post up a new thread.
