I am a novice and have never played an instrument in my life, but me and my friends are starting a band as sort of a hobby. We have drums and an electric guitar and they had me writing songs and doing the vocals, but I feel like I could be contributing more to the group while I am still doing the vocals.
I am super invested in helping aid the group's sound as much as I can so I am looking at either learning keyboard or bass guitar. Keep in mind that in order to practice effectively, I want something not too bulky and cumbersome and I want to be able to hook up my headphones so I'm not disturbing anyone. With that in mind, which do you think would be easier to learn and aid the band more?
Thank you, and don't hold back, I know I am a novice and I am not easily offended!
EDIT: Sorry if I broke the rules, looks like the post got closed. I do want to thank you for all your amazing feedback and comments. I am going to go with Bass, and that decision was made without taking anything away from keyboard and was the result of all of your great feedback and some more research on my part. I am so excited to go on this new journey!
