(Also see "bass guitar
", if you're looking up the kind of fish, sorry)
is a stringed
to have 4 strings (Tuned to E-A-D-G), 5 strings (B-E-A-D-G), 6 strings (B-E-A-D-G-C), and even up to 15 strings... although the usual bass
you'd see have 4-5 strings (4-stringed
being the basic).
There are two types of bass
#1 is the acoustic upright/violin/double bass
(which is the size of an obese adult and would weigh half as much as one.
#2 is the electric bass
which is much lighter, much smaller, and much louder than the double bass
- which because of that, it replaced the double bass
and the cello.
***HEY, IF YOU'RE THINKING
OUT A BASS
THIS BIT FOR TIPS***
Compared to a regular guitar, the bass
has a longer neck and thicker strings, making the frequency lower than what a guitar could reach. In technique, the bassist
has to concentrate more
on where to place his/her fingers on the fingerboard than what string to pluck. This would mean
that the bass is easier to learn
but is harder
to master than a guitar.
Also, since the bass can produce a low level of Megahertz and if it's at a high volume, this means
you can FEEL the rumbling every time
a note, and since that the neck is very long, it makes an awesome chick-magnet!
TAKE NOTE!-- Do NOT, I repeat
DO NOT, abuse the bass by striking a few random, repeating notes and let the rumble do all the work just
to get yourself laid. Grab some discapline and learn
what it means
to play the bass, get a teacher, be more
intuned with your favorite
music. I seen and heard enough halfwits in parties and the radio repeating the same few notes on a B-tuned
string with a bunch of 15 year old girls watching, be more
open-minded than that.
The reason why I love the bass is because it's an underestimated and underrated instrument. And the people who hate or think the bass guitar and bassist are worthless
A) dumbasses who don't know
what real music is
B) tools who needs to take a fucking musical theory class
C) retards who think that the bass is an inferior form of the guitar (even though they both have
very different backgrounds)
