God help me, I find myself with a desire to buy a bass guitar. Haven't yet mastered a six string, nothing like, but always wanted to try a bass. Not really got the room for more stuff in the house & severely lacking in musical aptitude. However, the sound would bring me great joy & would probably annoy the neighbours. So potentially a good idea.

Perhaps acquire a small set of drums as well . . . .

One can never have too many guitars, gadgets (and in your case) vintage motorcycles. You'll need a bass amp too....

Sounds like a brilliant idea to me. :idea:
And a bass only has 4 strings as opposed to six with a lead guitar, shouldn't that make it easier to play? :?
Mark King certainly makes it look easy :wink:

Sadly I sold mine a few years ago. Knew I'd regret that :*:

Good man! It's the start of a very slippery (but enjoyable) slope ;)
