Re: Should I learn the bass?
Yes do it! Bass is fun. I want to get a bass rig just so I can have a change from sitting behind the drums all the time. You should take at least an occasional lesson, and try learn some basic theory if you don't know any already, knowing the basic scales combined with some good technique will help you become awesome in no time. That's what helped me. and if you play with a pick, play hard, nothing worse than a weak bass player :)
