How important is a bass instrument in a band?

The “bass” sound can be considered as much as 50% of the sound in a band! A band could have many instruments, but if it does not have a bass, it will be missing the bass guitar.

The bass guitar has a thicker diameter and produces a deeper sound in comparison to the classical guitar. The electric bass guitar is different from the string bass, played in an orchestra, and can be played by finger picking or with a bow.

The electric bass guitar can be played in two ways, fingerpicking or with a pick depending on the preferred style. We can teach you both types of playing styles.

What do I need to learn about the bass guitar?

To play the electric bass, a student also needs an amplifier. The cost of a good amplifier can range greatly. We recommend choosing one with accessories for your electric bass, like a bag for a pick, tuner, etc.
