What is a Bass Guitar?


A bass guitar is a stringed instrument which is similar in appearance and build to an electric guitar, except it has four to six strings (more commonly four), a longer neck & scale length. It is typically played using fingers, thumb or by plucking, slapping, strumming, tapping, picking with a plectrum. A bass guitar is normally an octave lower than the electric guitar with its strings pitched to E, A, D, and G.​




What to consider when buying a bass guitar for a beginner?


There are a few main things to consider when buying a bass guitar for a beginner.

  • You should purchase the best bass guitar that you can afford. The better the bass, the easier it will be to learn on.
  • Always begin on a 4-string bass and if you are smaller, try out a short-scale bass instead of long-scale.
  • Select a bass which appeals to you - It won't change the sound but it may motivate you to pick it up and play it more often.
