    I've never touched a bass. Is it a lot different from playing guitar, like the scales positions and stuff?

    So bass is more about setting the rhythm. The bass note is the root of the chord.
    So basically, (BASSically?), the bass is the glue that holds it all together. The bass player is usually the most manly of all the band members.

    TL;DR
    Guitar provides chord, bass lets dumb guitar players know they're playing the wrong chord and the drummer that he's outta time

    Exactly, want to know what key a song is in, figure out what the bass player is doing and there is your answer

    You can just filet the bass. Don't worry about the scales.
