one of my main problems is the one finger per fret…now im still a noob
when it comes to bass, but i cant seem to stretch my pinkie finger for the
4th fret without dislocating it first (sarcasm btw), any advice??? any at
all would be appreciated!
Hello, im looking to learn how to play bass, what is better to learn on, a
Precision bass, or a jazz. Thanks :)
Josh, I’ve been playing acoustic guitar for 3 years and am pretty good at
it now. I play some bass riffs on it too sometimes but now I want to pick
up bass as I have been always fascinated with the instrument. How difficult
would be for me to make that transition?Thank you.
Josh, I am left handed, the first time I picked up a bass guitar I was 15
(26 now) and it was for a right handed person. I was doing ok, but due to
certain things I had to stop. I want to start again from scratch, but I
don’t know if I should try to get a left handed bass or re-start with a
right handed bass. What would you recommend? also, what would be a good
bass for me to start with? my prior one was a fender, but I don’t know if
to go with the same brand. Thanks in advance.
I want to learn but I don’t know what to get to start with. any
suggestions? Should I buy a starter kit from amazon ?
hey josh so im only 13 and i play drums but i really wanna play bass and
guitar too (starting with bass) and i was just wondering is there only one
type of bass or many types?
Extremely helpful man, art is about experiment with your imagination. Music
without imagination isn’t.
I’m new. I want to use a plectrum.
I am not able to use my left pinkie on the fret board (old injury). It
just goes along for the ride. I figured that guitar would be more
problematic so I’m going to try the Bass.
Your thoughts on the matter
Are you supposed to press on the metal bars or between them?
Im I too old if Im 22 and never touched a bass before?
Hey Josh, my names Luke and ive really wanted to play bass for awhile now.
all my friends play 1 or more instruments and i want to learn bass. but i
dont have a good left/right hand coordination. how challenging would it be
to learn bass guitar.
Is an Amp 100% necessary?
Wow, this is awesome. Amazing videos, Josh. I did the exploring and
learned basics from a friend who is only familiar with the guitar, but
until today I couldn’t see what else I could do with just exploring. Thanks
to your videos, I can see more potential I can do to practice bass more
often. Especially with someone who seems very familiar with the bass and
knows techniques to applying the skills. Very much appreciated. Wish I
could “show my support” But until I am able to, I know what channel to
Thanks for taking the time to upload this tutorial video,Josh. I still
consider myself a beginner(especially after watching you!). I envy those
giant mits you got,bro!
Recently discovered the joy of the SHORT SCALE bass and think it fits my
body,playing style/ability and small hands (“lady hands”) much,much better.
While the 1-Finger-per-Fret rule is something I work hard to adhere
to,there are times that prolonged playing “up” on the neck(1st-4th fret)
make me sacrifice form for motion. Learned early on that we(especially
beginners) should NOT force/stretch to the point of marked
pain/discomfort….twill come back to haunt thee!
I realy enjoyed this , because your so sincere and honest , no ego thing ,
im nearly 50 and have dabbled now and then with the bass , and decided to
start again properly , just got a bass ive always wanted , a westone
thunder 1 , i love it because its small like me lol and ive got small hands
,, im glad i watched this video because years ago when i tried basses out
ih shops , the shopkeeper always said , oi use your thumb to play E string
, this ive always found hard , and just play with my fingers like you show
, so my minds at ease now , shopkeeper bully lol so thanx again for your
vid , ive subscribed and plan to learn more from you , you might like my
vids , old vintage synths etc ?
I received a bass guitar for my 22nd birthday I’m excited to start
learning! i hope i havent left it too late to take up a new instrument! Ive
been playing the drums for a few years now but feel too conscious playing
on stage so im gonna try out the bass!
I’m mad at you
8:12 more like… a BASS-ic idea!!! Ohohohoho… no one? :c
is it OK/possible if I start to play the bass from 0 without any knowledge
about the guitar?
Thanks mate :)
Josh, good video. I can play songs that I like by ear but have no idea what
key or the name of the notes I’m playing. What should I do to make the next
jump to know, I guess the structure in what I’m doing? Does that make
Hi Josh, I am brand new to bass, always wanted to learn. I am right handed;
however, I have always thought that playing bass/guitar would be easier for
me if the neck was on my right side – the frets seem harder than the
strumming/plucking – anyway I found an awesome Fender Jazz Lefty bass. Any
suggestions on how to get started?
Love the “neurological adaptations”. If I had fingers as long as yours I’d
be a much better bassist.
nice!but ur a showoff for yhe purpose of the video.no offense
Thanks for the advice. Helped make playing more easy to approach.
Thanks man! :)
thanks for the tutorial buddy, i find it really helpful. YOU ROCK!
That Is an amazingly beautiful bass!
54 used to be a drummer had to downsize so decided to go with bass
.. ?- is a drummer a bassist’s best friend and vice-versa…….
its so hard to pluck my fingers because it hurts
This guy is the perfect teacher. Im starting so I can teach my 5 year
old-teaching the drums is simple for me, but the bass is brutal.
Hey guys, I am new to the guitar world. Do you bass players get a lot
calluses as the strings are metal as opposed to nylon strings on classical
guitars? I know two bass players who don’t have calluses and they have been
playing for years. I loathe calluses to be honest.
thanks this helped a lot
Im 32, and I went out and bought my first bass guitar thanks to you and
this video. Wish me luck!
Cool man!!! I just picked up the bass today
Very helpful video, thanks man! I wish I’d seen it before, because I’ve
been fooling around on my new bass (another small-handed beginner here) for
like three weeks and getting extremely frustrated with myself after barely
half an hour! But this makes me feel better and encourages me to
what bass is that?
One finger per fret is great if you are big guy like you with HUGE hands
but for a smaller girl with smallish hands forget it!
You’re a brilliant teacher, Josh, I’m so glad I picked up a bass after I
watched the video!
can you give the bass tutorial of fade to black by metalllica ?
Best bass tutor on youtube by far.
HA! I get it. Bassic! Puns
A good first bass amp?
I’d go with the fender rumble series
Try the 25 version, if not go with the 15(not good with playing with drums)
I’ve been listening to the bass in so many songs for so many years so I
hope I can do this. Thanks for the post!
This is ok, but Flea is way better!
Dude ur dead u put me to sleep!!
