Guitar vs Bass

Led Zeppelin is my favorite band of all time. I am a member of their site. So playing the bass is far easier. 4 strings vs 6. Standard tuning on a guitar is EADGBE. You take off two strings and you have a bass, basically speaking. Guys like Entwistle and JPJ were masters on the bass. Two of the best bass guitar songs ever done were The Real Me by the Who and the Lemon Song by Led Zeppelin. Listen to the bass in those songs. Unreal.

If you just want to be in the band, the bass is the easier instrument. But it depends on what kind of music. On guitar it can be very complicated and several tunings can be used.



I am thinking of buying a guitar and haven't decided if I want a bass
or an standard electric? I have opportunities to be in a band if I buy
a bass and I have people that will teach me base but; I myself would
prefer an electric. Cause anyone can play a base but not everyone can
play an electric!
I would take lessons no matter which I bought but I would be playing
on my own like 80% of the time. And I think standard would sound better
on it's own than bass.
I would really appreciate it if you could help me decide!
Thank's for your time,
