An Instrument of the Ages

For many centuries, the double bass was the main fixture in concert halls across the world. But in the mid-twentieth century, bass players had created a new instrument on which to practice their amazing musical crafts and it was called the bass guitar, which is also known as electric bass. The instrument expanded the possibilities of different music genres especially pop, jazz, rock, country, hip hop, R&B, and even the greatest of classical music. A bass guitar is a plucked string instrument built in a similar style of an electric guitar but the difference is that it produces lower frequencies. It produces sound when one of its metal bass strings vibrate over one or more magnetic pickups (although non-magnetic pickups aren't always used). The pickups will then transmit a signal, via instrument cable, into a connected amplifier, which will in turn allow the bass to be heard at an amazing range of volumes. The majority of bass guitars have four strings, but five-string, six-string, seven-string, and eight-string models are favored by certain players.


Every Bass Has a Place Among Musicians

1. Choose a bass with a design that you love.
Beginners are much more likely to stick with the instrument when they start out on a bass that inspires them to pick it up and play. Start simple.

2. The right amount of Strings.
Most beginners should start on a four-string bass and get the basics down before moving on to a five or six-string instrument. If you aren't sure what kind of bass you should consider, think about what kind of music you'd like to play and learn which instruments used in that genre. Players with small hands may feel more comfortable with a short-scale bass.

3. Making the right investment.
You'll find that around 9-10k Php is a good budget for a first bass guitar. Deciding on a spending limit is always tough for new musicians. This goes for guitarists and drummers too, and I suppose any other instrument. You don't want to drop a lot of cash, especially if you aren't sure you're going to stick with it.

4. Don't forget the amp.
Remember, you are going to need an amp too, so you don't want to go much higher than that. As a beginner, you need to walk the line between quality and affordability. The number one rule for choosing one's first instrument is to pick a bass guitar that inspires you. That's because it takes a lot of time and effort to learn music, and the more excited you are about picking up your instrument and playing the more you'll want to practice.

5.A wide variety of shapes and sizes.
You'll see electric basses in all different body styles. As a newbie, it really doesn't matter what you choose, as long as it is something you like. The only caution I'll give is to make sure you go with an instrument you can comfortably sit down with while practicing. In most cases, it is smart to leave the crazy shapes for when you get a little better.


Qualities of Bass Guitars

Tonewoods are simply the woods used to build an instrument. The body, neck, and fingerboard of a bass guitar are all made of wood, and those woods have certain qualities that affect the sound.

1. Now for the different types of tonewood, we have Mahogany, Warm, and deep with good low end. Used for guitar bodies, as well as alder: Bright with a good midrange.

2. Basswood, Similar to mahogany but a little woodier and not as articulate. Maple, Used in necks and fingerboards. Crisp and bright.

3. Rosewood, Used in fingerboards. Warmer than maple. If you are like most musicians, after you've been playing a while you're going to care a lot about tonewoods, and probably have some pretty strong opinions. For now, don't sweat it too much. And, realize that guitar companies often take a few shortcuts with wood in their budget-level guitars. These shortcuts sometimes mean we can get a solid instrument for a good price, even if it does utilize some lesser-known wood species such as Indian laurel or Agathis.

4. Another important aspect aside from wood is that most bass guitars today have a 34-inch scale length or, in the cases of extended range instruments, sometimes 35 or 36-inches. Technically, those are "long-scale basses", but they've pretty much become the standard. These are big instruments, and this is one of the most daunting things for newbies when first learning to play. However, there are also "short-scale basses" that come in around the 30-inch mark. They are a little smaller, with frets that are closer together. For some beginners, especially those with smaller hands, they are more manageable. Be aware that short-scale basses also sound a little different. Scale length affects string vibration, and short scale basses tend to sound deeper and less articulate The bottom line is this: Most new bassists should start out on a standard 34-inch bass. However, if you are a small player with small hands realize there are other options out there.


Big Brands in the World of Bass

1. Fender makes great basses. The Jazz Bass and the Precision bass are one of the most iconic basses in the music world. There is also the Mustang bass, but it's not as popular.

Pros:

  • Time-tested brand
  • Gateway brand to many musicians

Cons:

  • Brand quality may differ with retailers
  • Many competitors offer similar price and quality

2. Another major bass maker is Ibanez. They have been making good basses for decades, and their model line up is massive! We are talking about 10 different series with different models in each series.

Pros:

  • Many models are easy to play
  • The design is highly ergonomic

Cons:

  • Higher brands produce much more distinct tones
  • Some models may not be as good as others

3. Another high-quality bass brand is Music Man by Ernie Ball. The most popular model is by far the Stingray. Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers played a Stingray for a large part of his career; these are high-quality basses. They feature an 18-volt preamp and 3 band EQ to allow you to dial in a wide variety of tones.

Pros:

  • World recognized quality
  • Utilized by multiple famous musicians

Cons:

  • Certain models may be difficult to learn on
  • The price point is very high

4. Another giant in the bass world is Yamaha. They've been making bass guitars long before bass guitars were ever popular. The bodies and finishes of Yamaha guitars are of similar shape and look to those of Ibanez.

Pros:

  • Yamaha bass guitars have excellent tones
  • The fit and finish is extremely high-quality

Cons:

  • Some models can be quite heavy
  • Yamaha bass guitars are quite expensive

FAQ

・Is it easy to learn a Bass or Guitar?

- How easy or hard an instrument is to learn depends on how much time you are prepared to practice. To become proficient in any instrument takes time, but unlike some instruments, playing bass guitar becomes fun quite early on, as you are able to play along with a band or your favorite songs by playing a simplified version of the bass line, as you improve over time, you can create more complex bass lines.

・Can you play Bass if you know the Guitar?

- Up to a point, yes. A guitarist will be able to play a simple bass line, and it is certainly easier to learn bass guitar if you already have experience of playing guitar, but to become proficient requires lots of different skills and techniques which are unique to bass guitar.

・Am I too old to start learning an instrument?

- No. it's never too late to start learning to play a musical instrument. The oldest student ever taught was already 70 years old when they started lessons.


Trivia

Did you know that the electric bass dates back to 1935 when the Audiovox corporation produced its Model 736 Bass Fiddle?

The Model 736 was immediately differentiated from traditional double-basses by including frets on its neck. This made intonation far easier, which made bass playing accessible to a wider array of players.

The bass guitar as we know it was first produced by the Fender Electric Instrument Manufacturing Company in 1951. Known as the Precision Bass or P-Bass for short, it was modeled on Fender's popular Telecaster electric guitar.

Although it has gone through minor modifications over the decades, the P-Bass remains popular.

Fender is also noted for its Jazz Bass, which was first introduced in 1960. It was designed to emphasize the middle and upper registers of bass playing. It was actually modeled on the Jazzmaster electric guitar, although both the Jazzmaster and Jazz Bass seemed to have caught on more with the rock players more than jazz players.
