The bass guitar The bass guitar Presentation Transcript

  •  The Bass guitar is a similar but different thing from a regular guitar.
  • Less strings A bass guitar has less strings than your average guitar. They usually have 4 strings, which are the most common. Some have 5, some have 6, but most bass guitars have 4.
  • Sound? The bass guitar produces a much deeper sound also.  The Bass makes a bum, while a regular guitar makes a Bing. (If that makes any sense). View slide
  • Different Amps..? A guitar amp and a bass amp are 2 different things. It’s pretty much common sense, but while asking around, I found out that a lot of people didn’t know. View slide
  • Recommended Sizes For personal use, I would suggest using a 10 to 30 watt amp.  (its all you really need for self use) For gigs, I would say go bigger; 75 watts or bigger.
  • How to play? The bass guitar can be played in pretty much 3 different ways…  Picking  Finger Strumming  And Slapping
  • Finger Strumming  Finger strumming is just how it sounds. You pull up on the strings, as simple as that. It’s more of a bluesy way to play. Finger strummers are usually into funk or blues.
  • Picking Picking is another way of playing, which is common for most rock or punk bands. Its pretty much just using a pick to strum the strings. (I use a pick, I find it easier. Plus… Its just my style.)
  • Slap Bass! The third way is Slap Bass, which is amazing! Slap bass is pretty much thumping the strings with your thumb while popping the strings with your other fingers. It’s a pretty awesome way to play!
