Awesome! Great start on bass lessons!
I know this is a simple lesson, but if anybody have any questions or criticism, feel free to ask me on ICQ - 74952112, e-mail, or Private message on forum, I will be glad if I could help you with anything, It doesn't need to be in relation with this lesson,
now I play electric but is this considered hard on bass? not being judgemental
no, this is considered as very basic lesson, as written in heading, "Beginner Bass Lesson 1"
If you consider this hard, you better practice more
Just kidding, hope I gave you correct answer
If i had not mentioned before, point is that you learn correct fingering and moving of your left hand across the neck.
As you all know, bass guitar have much bigger neck and spacing between frets, so it's important (my opinion) to use all 4 fingers of your left hand for playing, so in future you can play more complex and faster parts much easier, we don't play bass to double guitar; E, G, C, D, at least i don't.
If you use only three or maybe even two fingers, you will have much trouble with big "jumping" across the neck, play dirty and you'll hardly ever achieve wanted speed and accuraccy.
do u ever use the 24th fret on bass for any string for a song?
i use it very often, for my solo songs, or sometimes in my band, when i slide into a octave,
But I use another tuning, i tune my bass whole step down, from EADG to DGCF, my bass has 24 frets, and let's say some fender has 20, when I tune down, i have D,and D#, lower than fender, and still two halftones higher than fender on my 23, and 24 fret on 4th string,
so you see that's useful, with 24 instead 20, i can have more low and more high tones per one string, it's not just 4 halftones higher
Thanks alot it's really nice and clear for my musical practices for Brass band... I hope I could pass this music class It's first time to play bass
