I recently accepted the offer to join a friends metalband as a bassist. It has been a while since i played in a band and i want that back in my life.
However, advancing my guitar-journey remains my primary goal.
I was just curious how the experiences of others with that arrangement are. I know i am not alone as it is quite common for guitarists to help out as bass-players. I only know one person who has always been exclusively a bassist.
Of course it is not going to hurt to learn another instrument but i am especially interested if you find it helps with playing rythmguitar.
Do you find your guitar technique translates well to playing bass or should i prepare to develop new motions?
While we are at it, what should i look out for when buying a new bass ? Rember i am doing this to up my style, so i will buy a sexy Ltd F-series anyway, i just want you to tell me its good.
Have a nice day, everybody!
