Bass Guitar Lessons

What you need to know as a Bass player
Many young rock star wannabies are assigned bass guitar duties in the group on the assumption that it's easy. And bass is easy if you just hit a root note (what's that?) every now and again. But if you want to get the best enjoyment out of playing bass you need to study chord structure, keys, timing, scales, fretboard, improvising, and master different genres and styles of bass guitar . The bass guitar lessons incorporate examples of all of these requisite skills that make you a musician playing great bass guitar.
