Newbie Alert!

Post  scarab on Thu May 13, 2010 7:25 pm

Greetings all,

It's a public holiday today, and I borrowed a friend's bass so I can start my journey to learn to play the bass! I've spent the day watching DMans' vids and getting an idea of what lies ahead of me. Smile

I would like to get some advice of what to concentrate on. I'm going to be spending some time with the bass everyday and so and I want to maximize my time. I've got a metronome/tuner, Dmans' vids and a copy of some accelerated learning system called CG-X or something (has anyone else heard of it?), but I'm also hoping of getting additional advice and recommendations.

Thanks for reading! Smile

Cheers!

I'd say: go to Dman's website & follow the lessons there in the order of the lesson tree. That gets you a good basic understanding of qhat your actually doing, sort of. But then again, I'n a n00b too, so you might want to listen to advice of some more experienced players.

Work your way down the lesson tree, spend AT LEAST 15 minutes of practicing after each video. Preferably half an hour or more to make sure you've understood and mastered what was in the video. Learning how to read tabs and some other bits of theory is quite neat as well.

Yeah, start slow and speed up and progress at your own pace. Also you may want to not play for so long at first as you could get blisters easily (unless you have callouses on your fingers already)... I played loads for the first week I got a bass and then was in pain for a couple weeks after lol! I used lots of plasters and cellotape to protect my fingers and played through the pain XD

Good luck in the journey of music!

Am a n00b too, follow DMan's lessons and practice at least 15min/day (I think one fellow already told you both)

Good luck! cheers

Practice everything you can and try out as much new stuff (techniques/songs/other things) as possible. You will end up deciding on what techniques suit each situation. If you want/need to know more things (e.g. how to play faster) please post.
