The most low end section of every music on planet earth & my favourite of all instruments I use.
It’s quite simple actually.
The four stringed madness that has no limit even in explorations. Some say 6 strings & 12 strings are better in reality the resonanse of four strings will always be the best to me. It is the most simplistic intrument to hold but the toughest in comparison to any other intrument because how it is use in each particular genre many say it has never gain its popularity well its doesn’t have to. The whole point of the matter is if it grooves you, it grooves me, it grooves everybody else! I am not gonna dabble much on the history of the bass because that’s why we have wikipedia but all I can say is the bass is the sound that hold the foundation of the band. Young ones I do encourage you to go pick up a bass guitar and start jamming even though you don’t have enough chops let the bass show you the way of life.
It will show you the way.
For those who are figuring out where to find your identity on the bass I encourage you to listen to Flea, Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Billy Sheehan, John Entwistle, Geddy Lee, etc. The more you seek you will find your identity in the bass not the other way around.
Oh I almost forgot!
Much the rules in life we have rules too:
Keep the oath!
Keep grooving who knows we will jam soon anyway.
