I need help...

Well.. Not actually help, but a lesson...
Or... two lessons...

Can anyone teach me how to play bass and piano?

Or at least give me a good link?

I know the basics...

Playing bass is not really anything like playing guitar. Just 'cause you play guitar doesn't mean you can play bass. It's totally different, rhythm and everything.

I don't have time now, but to get started you have to know how to position your right hand, or left hand if you are a lefty like me. I can't describe it, but go on youtube; there are some really great videos, especially from the great guy named Dalton, the username is expertvilliage, but yeah he makes some good vids.

   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IxHBW0YpZwthis is a good one. Sorry, I can't play anywhere near the well....... he doesnt explain the hand position, but imitate it, its not hard once you see it. And it will probably hurt your wrist for a while. When finger plucking, only you your middle and index fingers.

Don't go anywhere near popping and slapping if you're just learning. I also would recommend that you do not use a pick, pretty much ever.

Don't have time for more now..... sorry ^^

I didn't see anything on you link Jim. But, then again I really didn't look hard enough.

Should I start writing a lesson? It would probably be fun to write a big lesson thread.

I think I will.

Thank You, Oldies!
Your link was really helpful!
That guy is a good teacher...

I tried the slapping & popping. It sounds soooooo cool!!  
But my fingers really hurts, now.. 
Well, that's part of the fun, isn't it?

A lesson for me? Is that what you're saying?
