All that has been stated on this site applies to bass guitar too.
Learn to play your favourite bass lines, join a band, do grades, learn to read the bass clef and how to transcribe and compose bass lines.
Pick ten of your favourite tunes and I can use these as a guide to teach you. Eventually you'll be able to play along with them.
Customising lessons in this way means I never have to enquire if students have done any practice.
Very handy for understanding the role of the bass, how bass lines are constructed and how your favourite tunes were played.
Handy for covering a lot of ground quickly without missing any important areas that will slow you down later on and for guaging your progress.
Not known to have done a bass guitar grade. How did he manage?
Become able to work out what chaps like Ronnie were up to when they played some of their classic lines.
Learn the stylistic features of your favourite players.
