Bass Guitar

You are here: Home  > Bass Guitar
The bass guitar is a fundamental part of pop and rock music. It propels the music and sits underneath the guitar and vocals, backing up the harmony, creating build, intensity and dynamic as well marking out the rhythm. It's easy to play simple bass but the mastery of rhythm is a sufficient challenge to last for years. The bass and drums together form the rhythm section. They are the engine room that drives the music forwards. Unlike good guitar players, who are a dime a dozen, good bass players are always in demand and are often the unsung hero of the band. Whenever a song makes you want to dance, you can guarantee there's a great bass line kicking in. The modern electric bass guitar developed from the double bass, and other traditional bass instruments. As techniques have evolved, the electric bass has come to be used as a soloing instrument in jazz, fusion, Latin, and funk styles, andbass solos can also be performed in other genres.
