I've decided to learn bass guitar. I can play like three songs, Greenday, Nirvana etc. My mom said I can go for lessons, do you think it's worth it?

definatly take lessons, youll be so much better than learning to play by yourself

yeah after like a year when you know your shit you can go by yourself. I've been playing guitar for almost 2 years and I took lessons for 1 year after I learned by tabs n' stuff.

only take lessons once you've been playing for a few months, you'll learn all the basic stuff in a few months, then if you want to learn stuff like improv etc go to lessons.

yeah i just started too. lessons help a ton but if u have friends that are good at bass have them teach u some songs. like one of my friends tought me smoke on the water and iron man.
