I've been playing a ukulele and an acoustic guitar for a while, I'm not super good yet but I decided to get a new instrument. The problem is that I can't decide between an electric bass-guitar or a regular electric guitar. I have the feeling that a guitar can play a bigger variety of different sounding songs than a bass, but on the other hand a bass guitar just sounds really cool. I'm also a bit afraid I'll go nuts if I get a bass because it seems like it'd get repetitive playing it without other instruments mixed in... I figured I could just get a regular guitar with an octave pedal, which would almost be the best of both worlds. It won't be the exact same as playing on a bass but I'd definitely be learning something, no?
