Practice, it'll be boring at first, but once you get good you'll never want to put it down.

Make sure you do it once a day and play what you like that is important!

To be honest, I think that it's just as important to practise what you don't particularly like.

Use youtube, if you don't know what to look for i can help you find some stuff, youtube is a genius invention for this sort of thing, a godsend for beginner musicians because even though you cant interact with the person teaching you it's free, you can repeat it as many times as you like until you fully understand, and you can find so many lessons from different people across the world, absolutely fantastic invention, i still use it now to learn random odd techniques, Bill ****ens taught me about the buddah rope just yesterday absolute genius.

Agreed, eventually if you play what you like, you'll just end up noodling around, and you'll be playing the same stuff over and over again. Whats the point in practicing something you already know all the time?

Let us all hail my 1,000th post.

well it takes a while to get good at bass if you've never played any other instrument. After you get good at that though, you'll just want to keep playing different things. Piano is a great sub instrument but you'll love guitar as well.

Practice a lot, and learn some basic music theory. Learn what the notes are that you're playing, and why. Don't just learn tab, or you'll be stuck there for the rest of your life.
