QUOTE - UNQUOTE
"When I heard BB King's Sweet Sixteen I knew I wanted to play bass because that was the thing that made that record, the bass player."

START WITH SOMETHING FUN
Getting Started and Overcoming Procrastination
Starting your practice sessions with warm-ups makes the best use of your time. But, there are days when getting started at all is a challenge. On those days, you can motivate yourself by starting your practice session playing music you truly love. Don’t even think of it as practicing. Just play something fun.
Playing every day is always better than skipping days. If running through your favorite song is what it takes to get in your 10 minutes of bass time today, then do it. Even if you only play the fun music, that’s okay. You avoided falling into the trap of skipping a day because you didn’t feel like practicing, and that’s an important victory.
After all, why do you play bass anyway?
BUY A BASS YOU LOVE
Feeling Inspired Every Time You Play
One of the joys of playing music is having an instrument you love. When you are proud of your bass, you will be more inspired to play it, you’ll spend more time practicing each day, and you’ll want to take it out of its case just to see it.
You don’t have to go out and purchase a top-of-the-line, world-renowned instrument. That could cost you many thousands of dollars. But, you need a bass that’s high quality and that has great tone. Get the absolute best you can afford within your budget. There are many outstanding choices.
Try to avoid being stuck with a beginner level bass. Many are not very well made, and they’re virtually unplayable.
