"The bass makes everything sound so beautiful and full"
- Charlie Haden -
Jack’s Guitar Garage offers private bass guitar lessons for ages 8 and up.
Every band is looking for a great bass player! In a band setting, the bass works with the drummer to form the rhythm section. In lessons, bassists focus on some of the theory behind chords, how to use different rhythms and notes to create grooves, as well as being able to follow bass clef notation.
The bass is essential in all genres of music. Whether its funk, rock, hip hop, soul, metal, pop, country or any genre in-between, if you listen close enough, you will hear the bass. Sometimes the bass may not be as flashy as a guitar, but if you listen to some bass legends like Victor Wooten, Geddy Lee and Flea, you can see what the bass can be truly capable of.
If you want to listen to some iconic bass moments in music, here are a couple tunes to check out!
