Hello all

Newbie bass player and even newer member saying hi to all.

Have been a drummer for a while now, and have long envied bass players as (a) it looked lots of fun, and (b) it looked really easy ;-)

Earlier this year I decided to give it a go. It's just as much fun as I imagined, but not quite as easy(!) Still trying to get the hang of playing notes as well as just hitting stuff.

If there's a magic solution out there, I guess I'll find it on these boards - but the best advice I've had so far is "start 10 years ago".

Look forward to reading the boards and seeking advice from the experts.

All the best

Hertsbass

I was going to say that my left hand has trouble stretching round it...

Then there's the G-string, fingering A Minor, slapping, full bottom end, standing up with a strap on, going deeper and so on... ;)
