Like any instrument, it is all a matter of learning the right technique. You are in a very enviable position. Seek bass lessons from a proper bass teacher as soon as possible - you will not regret it later on, especially when you realise you have a good bass technique down pat.

The idea for beginners on any instrument (including bassists), is to develop the right technique from day one. A person who had mediocre skill but the right technique will always be a better player than somebody with horrid technique and talent.
