Is it a bad idea to do quantum with Shankar without having Griffiths first?

I have the option of doing either a one-semester QM course with Griffiths or a two-semester course with Shankar. Background is Eisberg and Resnick's "Quantum Physics". I really like quantum mechanics and would rather do two semesters, but will Shankar be too formal for an upper-level undergraduate?

No, both are textbooks for undergraduates.

Griffiths is not the unequivocally best way to teach quantum mechanics to an undergraduate. Many people would say Shankar is a better approach. Point being, it's not a bad idea.
