    I'm new here & referred by a friend of mine.
    I'm an engineer by profession and guitar is my hobby
    I've always wanted to learn bass guitar..
    Currently I own a generic acoustic guitar and learning chords and a few leads..

    Can somebody guide me how to start with my bass stuff??
    buying a guitar+amp is not a big thing....i can buy next month
    I just want to know how to start with it...
    Some pdf, txt, docx etc tutorial would be appreciated

    listen to funk and 70s disco and play that shit. if you can't hold a groove, you can't be a bassist. simple as that.

    70s disco basslines will give you bass workouts that you can't imagine. funk is important for consistency - playing those basslines for bars and bars on end is a lot harder than it looks.

    use a metronome.
