Default Re: bass guitar... advice...

It's a fine choice, and please don't construe anything I said as knocking it. If anything, getting acceptably proficient is somewhat easier than playing guitar of keys, in my opinion.

I played other instruments before the bass, so my theory was in hand before picking up either bass or drums. But that's what I would pick up a melodic instrument for - to try and learn a little about the other half of music (rhythm being one, melody the other).

In any case, singing and jumping around while playing the bass is fun.
