    Default Bass guitarists

    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?

    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.
