Electric Bass

ok... i think that i've been talking to much about guitars. So, now i'm going to vary the instruments and talk about the electric bass.

The electric bass guitar (a.k.a electric bass and bass) it's pronounced like "base" not bass as in bass fish. The bass is a stringed instrument and is played primarily with the thumb or the fingers ( by plucking, slapping, popping, tapping or thumping), or by a pick.

The bass guitar is very similar to the normal electric guitar but the bass' neck is longer and its scales too and it also has only 4 to 6 strings ( the normal basses...). The sound of the bass guitar is one octave lower than a regular guitar and its string notes go like this ( E [mi], A [la], D [re] and G [sol])

Note: For the electric bass to be heard a amplifier is needed...

Yes i do play the bass and the acoustic guitar and the electric guitar.

I personally prefer the bass than the acoustic guitar. I like the deep sound that it makes, also i like all the cool techniques you have to learn in order to perfect the playing.

it is proved the the bass is the electric instrument that takes the most time to learn and perfect.

so this is it....

I've never tried playing the electric bass, but I wouldn't have guessed that it's harder to master than the guitar. What's so difficult about it?

the basics are way easier than the guitar... but the special techiques required to play the bass with perfection and grace are way harder than the guitar
