Kind of embarrassed to admit that I really don't know the first thing about Bass playing. Would be nice to be able to trade off occasionally when jamming with friends. I tried it once or twice and felt like a fish out of water. Figured I better do something about this glaring deficiency, so I recently acquired a Bass rig in Craigslist trades - Line 6 Lowdown Studio amp and a Washburn Bantam Series 4 string Bass. Decent enough stuff but I still don't really know where to start and when I go into my studio still gravitate to my electric and acoustic guitars over the Bass. Are there some relatively easy, and not too time consuming steps I can take to learn to be able to play it in a pinch and maybe record with it? Is there a $20 DVD or Book you'd recommend someone who already knows where the notes are located but nothing else about the theory or technique of Bass accompaniment?
No announcement yet.
