Guitar Lessons For Beginners podcast, episode 3.

Short Description:

In today's podcast we'll talk about learning bass guitar.

Bass guitar is a great instrument and bass players, which are a vital ingredient of any band, are in high demand.

Is bass easy to learn? Not really. It's easier to start with than the acoustic guitar, but if you want to take it to the professional level, you’ll have to put in the necessary time and effort.

Bass guitar has only four strings (E,A,D,G). You can actually get 5 or 6 string bass guitars, but beginners usually start with four strings.

If you want to become a pro bass player, you'll have to understand music. Music theory, notation, scales, and so on.

There are no shortcuts, but it's definitely worth it. Practice a lot and don't forget to have fun.
