The bass guitar should be a piece of cake to anyone that plays upright

I don't understand why you would want to switch.

Bass guitar is an easy adjustment. It's not even as irritating as learning uke after playing guitar; you don't even have to worry about weird tuning.

Thumbs up The Bass Guitar

The bass guitar I think you'll find is an enjoyably nice instrument to pick up... like a good number of instruments in my opinion, it is quick to pick up - but takes a lifetime to master. =)

I don't understand why you made that statement. I have some pretty abrasive explanations, but I'd rather you explain first.

Why dont you just check out videos of Stanley Clarke and Victor Wooten in reverse mode. That should solve the whole problem. Geesh .. kids today.

Good Luck with your transition.
