Noting pulsating beats while listening to any song brings one thing to mind the electric bass Playing the bass is easy to learn but difficult to master It takes time dedication and hard work to master this skill You must first learn how to hold the bass also the proper way to play the strings but then be able to put that with scales and good timing After studding bass guitar for years one is then able to go anywhere musically with their instrument There are many basses and the ways you hold them For instance with an upright bass it needs to be rested on ground and stand while you play and with an electric bass one will want to wear a strap while standing and playing Being right-handed or left-handed determines a lot about how the bass is positioned The strings are played with your right hand if youre right handed and vise versa if youre left handed With a proper technique one is in the right direction to playing Most bassist use their thumb index middle and pinky to play the strings while applying pressure to the strings in between the frets on the neck Other bassist will use a pick to play but they dont have as much control How the strings are played isnt as important as how one places their fingers on the frettboard When there is a lack of pressure a muted sound is created so it is important to apply enough pressure Applying enough pressure in the right place is also necessary if youre not in between the frets you may get a sound you do not want Learning the different scales will help one to piece everything together Not knowing the scales might affect how quickly youre able to play songs and how good your ability to play with others If a guitarist is playing in the key of A you want to stay in that
