Starting Bass Guitars?
So basically I want to start playing an instrument, when I was little my parents got me a starter acoustic guitar but I never really got into it partly I imagine because I was a stupid kid and didn't like practicing anything.
Anyways as the thread title says I'm looking into starting playing a Bass guitar but I have no idea where to begin in that regard I imagine I'd start with some form of beginner Bass and a dinky Amp but my knowledge of instruments or musical equipment (Beyond how to mess with Equalizers and Music Software) is pretty much nil.
I figure there's got to be at least some musically inclined individuals on IC who could help me out so thanks in advance!.
Note: I'd be looking into getting into this later in the summer after I've acquired some disposable cash.
EDIT: I'm also a lefty if that causes any problems with instruments, I honestly have no idea beyond maybe not being able to hit the strike board on a right-handed guitar.
