I don't blame you CrazedRacer for hating me, I would have hated myself too if I wasn't there! I was 8-10 feet from Shaun with an unobstructed view, and it was absolutely mind blowing! It was a really weird deal, as Seether is opening with Bush and My Darkest Days for Nickelback. There was a one day break between shows and for whatever reason they came to one of our little local clubs 6-8 hundred people to play. Couldn't believe it! Maybe they wanted to be the main attraction for a change?? So after seeing that there is a whole lot more to the bass guitar than I ever thought, if someone who had never played either type of guitar, which would be the easiest for a beginner to learn? Thanks.
