Hey Sean, welcome to the bass world. Only tip I can give you is practice, practice, practice. Use a metronome...hmmm... Yea, there's this weird thing you can do while walking. Everyone walks in a rhythm, so you can run various grooves in your head, or even songs, while keeping them in rhythm with your walking. Thinks of your steps like a metronome. Just be careful not to do it out loud because people will look at you in a very strange way Smile

Well after many years of moaning to my wife about wishing I had learnt to play bass (but never got round to it) I can home last week to find my early 40th birthday present. Bass amp the full kit, a card attachted saying "stop moaning and get on with it"

So as I am a complete noob go easy on me, I have been messing around trying a few things, come together, the chain ect via youtube videos now I have found this forum and website so any tips are greatfully... well you get it.

I am try to get at least 1 hour of practice a day wish I could get more but with work and teenage daughters to contend with its hard to get more practice, what would you recomend I tried learning first.

your David

Welcome to the forums! You get more practice than I do and I can play the bass fine, so you'll be good. Wink

Hey man! Best thing I can suggest for starting out is the major and minor scale, then a few of dman's simple beginner riffs to get your hands nicely adjusted to the bass.
Also, do everything with a drum beat or metronome to start feeling the groove.

Once moving around across the neck feels comfortable (i.e. you stop feeling strain in your fretting hand), move on to other things Smile

Welcome! Very Happy

Stryfer was right on with everything. I would like to emphasize the metronome/drum beat thing. If you don't have timing, you have nothing.

Hey. My name's Cassidy. Feel free to call we whatever you want (as long as it isn't inappropriate and is somewhat close to my name). I had a bass for almost a year now and I decided I should probably learn to play haha

Welcome, welcome! Please do ask any questions about our noble hobby/profession you want answered. Someone'll have an answer for you. Very Happy

How did you acquire your bass? I'd never understood why some people got instruments and didn't learn how to play them until I bought an ukulele and went "nah bugger that". Wasn't until a year later that I actually bothered to try to learn how to play it Very Happy

Honestly, I think several of us check this forum everyday (possibly multiple times) but just don't post anything.

Hey all,

Having never, ever played a guitar before in my life, I decided at the age of 40 to learn to play the bass. I played clarinet & sax as a kid, but that was over 25 years ago. I am basically starting from scratch.

I picked up a Squier Affinity J-Bass starter pack about 4-5 weeks ago. I figure in a year or so if I don't suck, I'll actually upgrade to a better axe. I've gone to some lessons with an instructor and they've been ok. I haven't really been taught any of the basics yet though like, chords, arpeggios, reading sheet music, etc. He's a good guy, but I think I need to walk before I run.

Thanks for having such a great resource!

Joe
