I took bass lessons for two years, and played the clarinet for 5 years.

I kinda want to get back into lessons, but it's hard finding a teacher to your liking.

That's really common man..christ, if you plucked with your fingers you would see that so much more so.

I think you misread my post. I am a fingerstyle player. I dont like the way a bass sounds with a pick, I only use one when ive been jammin with a band or something and my fingertips get too sore from playing fingerstyle for 2-3 hours straight. Plus, I tend to play too hard sometimes anyways, which wears your fingers out much faster

Plus you quoted me way out of context. Do you honestly think I would touch this beauty with a pick?

Yes.

I didn't read your previous posts. How old are you? Nice bass.

Hey Flynn! Congratulations on deciding to play bass. I bought my first bass like twenty years ago. I was in a band three weeks later and I have been playing in bands ever since.
I think the most important thing for you to learn now is how to play with others. Find a guitar player and learn how to follow his chord changes. The most important thing for a bass player is hitting the root on time. If you don't do that the guitars and the drums sound out of time and then it all falls to shit.
Get familiar with the fingerboard and learn where each note is without looking (you can't hit the root if you don't know where it is right?). When you are more comfortable keeping time you will learn how to fill that time between hitting the root with passing tones or scales, arpeggios and all that shit.
First make sure you keep good time and hit the root. Good luck!
