: : whats the difference between a electric gutair and bass guatir (sound wise) and which one in ur opioion is better?*****Looks like I submitted before I answered on the last one*****Anyhow, what I was going to say is that a Bass Guitar only plays bass notes, and is used almost exclusively for rythm. Since you appear to be a "newbie" to guitars, the Bass would probably be easier to learn to play. On the Electric Guitar you can play the melody and rythm chords. They both sound good, but if you’re playing by yourself the guitar would be a better choice, in my opinion! Ralph
