Is bass easier than guitar?
The bass is easier to play than the guitar. The bass may only have four strings compared with the electric guitar’s six, but that doesn’t make it any easier to learn to play properly. It’s a different instrument that’s played differently from the electric guitar.
How long does it take to learn the bass guitar?
To gain full mastery of the bass guitar, you must have put in about 10,000 hours. If you put in 3 hours every day, this should take about 9 – 10 years. At this point, you are able to play very difficult riffs and perform other complicated feats on the bass guitar.
Is Bass fun to play alone?
There’s nothing wrong with bass without band. Honestly I often find it more convenient (and my live performances have lately been about 50:50 solo vs. accompanied). You can do so much more alone, especially since it’s far easier to break out of the instrument’s traditional role when playing alone.
How long should I practice bass each day?
If you are more serious about playing the bass, 2-3 hours a day would be a good amount of practice time. And, if you want to be really good you might practice as much as 6-8 hours a day.

Is learning bass guitar hard?
All in all, learning the bass guitar requires a lot of practice and hard work. In some aspects, it can be quite easy to play as it has fewer strings. At the same time, some may find it harder as it is larger and heavier. It simply depends on you and how well you can carry a rhythm.
Is Bass easy to pick up?
Bass is much easier to pick up than guitar. The focus on a single string really simplifies it and is much less intimidating. It’s nice because you can pick up a bass and an hour later be able to play a simple song, where for many learning guitar chords can take days before even simple chords sound clear.
