Should I learn the guitar or the bass?

Similar to the guitar, though perhaps not quite as popular, the bass is a cool instrument! While guitarists are front and center among the instruments of a band, the bass tends to play in the background. But since it plays all the low notes, the bass is very important for holding the band together and supporting it musically. So when deciding between the two, it’s a matter of your musical preferences and your personality! If you love those deep warm notes and are happy being in a support role, then the bass may be the right instrument for you! 

Another benefit of bass guitar is that it is easy to learn by comparison with the guitar. Bass players play single melodies, while guitarists also have to learn chords.
