One of the first places to start on your bass is by learning a basic scale, say the major scale. After that, take on the minor scale, and with those just two patterns you go a very long way on the bass guitar. After you have a scale or two under your belt, then you can start looking at things like rhythms, playing techniques, and learning some fills. In addition to the lessons you find here, it’s a good idea to head over to Youtube at some point and look up some performances from famous bass players. You’ll be inspired, and also if you watch closely, pick up a thing or two!
Okay, enough talk, let’s get down to business, and take some bass lessons, shall we?
