I want to start playing bass after playing guitar for forty years. At this stage it will simply be for home recording and home playing. I want to make my own backing tracks for playing the guitar and singing over. Maybe I will take it into a band situation if I get good enough, but it isn’t my priority.
So, given that I will still be playing my regular guitars as well as the bass, I am wondering if a short-scale length will be better for me to learn on due to the scale-lengths being closer.
Maybe I am wrong and switching to a long-scale bass to record some bass lines after playing a Les Paul for a couple of hours isn’t something that people struggle with. Does anyone struggle with this?
Would it be easier to switch to playing a short-scale bass after playing the Les Paul for a few hours?Am I worrying about something that isn’t a problem?
