  1. I've been playing bass for over 40 years, and have built a few too, and I have to say that this video gives fantastic advise for beginners. Well done and keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks for making these. After playing the same bass for about 8 years, I'm finally gonna go get a new one.

    Side note: I have the same exact Spider-Man poster in my room.

  3. What’s the first thing you should start learning in terms of the ‘fundamentals’ once you get your first bass home?

  4. So I if you buy a 5-string, do I have a 4 and 5 string in one? (As in that the 5th is just extra and the other 4 strings just sound like a 4 string)?

  5. I wouldn't be too put off by greater complexity of electronics on a beginner bass. Twiddle the knobs once, get a tone you like, and then practice, practice, practice. Later, you have some knobs to twiddle and you can be inspired by the different tones. On the other hand, I also like the idea of a very simple bass like a passive P bass or J bass. When you're ready to get serious about the tone, you'll probably have a bass effects pedal for far more variation than you'd get from a tone knob, pickup selector or the simple EQ you'll have on an active bass. At the very least, there will be an EQ and possibly a lot of other stuff like overdrive and a midrange scoop filter on the amp.

    I think the one thing that most beginners need to know is that a good bass player can get an incredible sound out of a cheap $200 bass. It's the skill of the musician that's most important and not the inherent quality of the instrument, and that gets back to this video's take home point. You need to be inspired to play so you develop the skills.

  6. Some cheaper jazz basses have a precision size neck.

  7. I started playing Long scale basses when i was 7 years old

  8. Do you have a business to call and ask more questions directly?

  9. Hello and just stumbled upon your site and I have a ? regarding Mexican vs American Fender made basses. I've read so many reviews with mixed opinions. What are the pros and cons for the two. Thanks

  10. P and J are not the only styles of basses
    there are also the MM style (Musicman Stingray, or any other bass with MM pickups), the PJ style (a mix between P and J, particulary with a P style splitcoil in the neck and a J style singlecoil in the bridge. mostly affordable basses), the Vintage Humbucker style (Rickenbaker, Hofner Viola, Gibson EB3 and more basses with vintage style humbuckers) and the Soapbar style (Gibson Thunderbird, Aria SB, Sire M7 and more basses with Soapbar style pickups)

  11. Seriously, I dont know anything in Guitar (cant even play a single note)!!
    A great inspiration indeed, love the way you inspire!
    I'm eager to buy a new bass soon, but still confused which one would suit my style – Will it be – Acoustic or electric??
    I've subscribed to your channel, in a hope to learn the best out of it.

  12. Thank you for this! I play bass at our church(church owns a bass) and I'm planning to get a personal bass sooon!

  13. Could you possibly do a comparison between the standard fender squier p bass (for example) and the stingray and maybe something in between the price ranges? I see a lot of comparison videos but they consist more of the difference between like a $700 bass and a $7,000 dollar bass but I'm looking for a more realistic reasonable price range comparison. Thanks for the content. 🙂

  14. This channel deserves more!

  15. Its sad that you have so many few subscribers but the production value is great
