Bass Advice

Recommended Posts

Learn where notes are on the fretboard, learn scales, listen to players you like and find out how to implement these scales in the music you play. Once you master that, look to players outside the music genre that you play for inspiration and new ideas.

Pretty much what i said :p

so agreed

I think your reason is crap. Mysterious 'feel' isn't so useful if you can't grasp the basics of keeping rhythm.

Nowt wrong with practicing with a metronome.

I agree with you- a metronome is vital to keep the correct rhythm. Any idiot would know that. I use one almost all the time when teaching my students. AND IT HELPS - I KNOW THAT.

Empty vessels make the most noise on this form i guess.............

Your grasp of the English language is a good indication of how much you really know.

internet language you dork....peace

Internet language? Thought we were talking about beats here. If all you do is come on this to insult people, then you've already lost the argument and this proves that you really didn't have a point to make in the first place.

Go back to school funkeebassman.

but I might suggest that making sweeping statements like that will only bring you grief on a forum

Well if you regard that as telling you how to behave then you are more stupid than you appear...

If you're gauging your own worth on how many pupils you have, then your recent posts hardly show you in a good light as a teacher do they? I know I would be looking elsewhere.

Can we get this back on topic please, which was tips for beginner bassists i.e. constructive advice...
