Is it hard?
Well, believe me I'm only an amateur guitarist as well.
When I used to play in a band, I was kinda like a replacement for the regular guy who couldn't always make it and they never offered me any money.
Maybe I was so bad they didn't think I'd earned it.
Back to the question. Yes, but as I said, I'm not that good.
I know a few that would make short work of it.
Let us know how you get on with it.
Cord, Bassman, yo, dude!
I love bass. I'm crap at that too, but I can play a few basslines on my guitar. I just can't seem to cover the fretboard of a bass. I think my hands are too small.
