The bass guitar has been around since the early days of modern popular music. Whether the style is jazz, blues, R&B, funk, rock or pop, the bassist provides the connective glue between the rhythmic and the melodic. A good bassist is a great listener and is aware of the importance of their supportive role.
Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced player seeking to improve, we can provide you with bass lessons and the support you need to get the best out of your playing.
Q: Is it easy to learn how to play the bass?
A: Bass guitar has a reputation as being a relatively easy instrument to learn. It’s often said that bass is easy to play but difficult to play well. With a little effort you could learn some of the basic patterns that would have you playing along to music quite quickly but to gain competence with the bass requires as much dedication and hard work as any other instrument.
Q: I can play the guitar, do I need lessons to learn how to play the bass.
A: Although some of the skills you have as a guitarist will be useful in playing bass and the instrument will feel familiar, it requires a different set of abilities. You would benefit from lessons in order to learn the finger technique, intonation and melodic role of the instrument. The approach bass players need is very different from that required to play guitar.
Q: Are bass guitars expensive?
A: A beginner’s bass starter pack including a bass guitar, bass amp and case costs from £144.99. Get in touch with us for more info, we’re happy to help you find the right instrument to suit your needs.
