my brother's a bassist, he's completely self taught and imo he's a pretty decent bass player for a self taught bassist. just need lots of practice and some pressure (in the form of stage time). haha.
standardvalue have pretty decent bass and electric guitars for those who want to start out, but getting there can be quite troublesome unless you live up north. its near the woodlands checkpoint. mike always gives good service, making sure that your visit is a pleasurable one.
Like uncle Wilson's service I presume. Haha. Thanks for the advice all of you.
