CALLING ALL BASSISTS!

41 replies 153 views Edited Dec 10, 2006
Does anyone here play bass?

I play guitar, and I love it, but I've really started to appretiate the bass!

I'm probably going to go to the pawn shop sometime and pick up a relatively cheap bass to practice and learn on!

My question for you bassists is... do you have anything to say about the bass that I should know about?

I don't know very much about it!  What are the different kinds of basses? (I don't mean like electric or acoustic or fretless)  I mean, are you supposed to use a different kind of bass for slapping, than for picking?

Thanks guys!

Haha, I don't know any bands that use an upright.  It's more classical I think, and costs like, $2000.  I don't play bass, but I know a lot of people that do, it's a cool instrument.

If you play guitar you already know how to play base. There is really nothing to learn if you already know guitars.Smiley Happy

Yep. Look up Rockabilly or Psychobilly music and you will here a lot of non-classical stand up bass. Also Jazz bands use standups all the time too so stand up is not confined to classical.
