It’s easy to learn bass and even easier to be an “okay” bass player but man, being great at it is a whole new different thing. It almost feels like you will need a very unique DNA in your body to master and will that 4-stringed monster.
But there are those who have done it. Bassists who managed to bypass the lead and even the vocals for them to stand strong and proud.
