Teach Yourself How to Play the Bass Guitar Overnight!
First of all, we must forget everything we’ve ever thought about how complicated playing music is. I compare it to ‘math anxiety’
Many people fear music and think that it takes a genius to be a good musician. To be a master it might take a genius, but to play songs on the bass guitar, sound good and have a great time is only a lesson or two away! I have been playing and teaching music professionally for many years and was a child piano prodigy myself. I play and teach: piano, guitar, bass, flute and drums. I have tought many friends and family members how to get started playing songs on the guitar practically overnight. When you are dedicated enough and passionate about learning the bass guitar, it comes a lot easier than you may think. My fiancee is also excelling at the guitar and the bass guitar since I’ve shown her a few methods and tricks. I hope this gives you the kick start you need to get started rockin’ and rollin’! Enjoy.
What is a bass guitar?
A bass guitar is like a guitar, but with only the lowest four strings. The strings are thicker and give you a lower sound than a guitar. The other difference with a bass is how it\'s played. The bass player\'s job is (usually) to \"hold down the bottom end\" and provide a \"groove\". What\'s that mean? Well, first, it means your part in the sound mix is the low range -- you\'re giving it the deep sounds. Second, you\'re part of the rhythm section! That\'s right, if you play bass you stick with the drummer. Together with the drummer, you provide a rhythmic base for the other instruments to play with: a groove. The groove you try to achieve is going to be much different depending on whether you\'re playing jazz, punk, country, pop, heavy metal, or any other style!
