The bass guitar often works with the drums to dictate the groove for most music genres. Bass guitarists help build groove and keep time. So you want to join “them" groove makers? You want bass guitar lessons, huh? Here we go. . .
Before you start taking bass guitar lessons, you need to get a bass guitar. You can start with a box guitar but what you'll be playing won't be the real thing. So, if you're serious, get your own bass guitar. You don't have to get a high end bass guitar. An average bass guitar will do just fine.
The best bass guitar lesson for you will depend on the way you learn best. There are folks who like it when a real person teaches them. If you fall into that category, then get a good bass guitar teacher.
Now, when looking for a bass guitar teacher, don't settle for a rhythm guitarist who claims he also plays the bass. If he ain't a bass player, he ain't a bass player. Get someone who does it for real.
If you have a more down-to-earth budget, hiring a bass player for you lessons might be a little too much for you to handle. For those who fall into this class, just go and get good bass lessons on Video CD's and DVD's.
These are great because everything has been systematically thought out and planned. These types of CD's and DVD's also come in grades and levels. So, if you're a beginner, you'll get all the basics you need with a beginner series. The only downside to this is that you will not get feedback on your progress unless you have someone who can assess you.
If you are more comfortable with the computer, you can get bass guitar lessons as software. The best ones will give you the opportunity of tracking your progress. For me, I prefer these software tutors more than all the other options.
So, there you are. You really have no excuse for not starting your journey into stardom now. All the bass guitar lessons you need are just a click or call away.
