Bass Brigade

In rock music the guitar typically takes the stoplight, but some rock bassists are the primary songwriters and the most effective musicians of their bands. I was planning on playing guitar anyways, but this made me sure.

You can use pedals, finger strategies to achieve this. Take Geddy Lee for instance; he gets more consideration that his guitarist, yes as a result of he sings, but in addition because of his tone. I play guitar and have played bass, however do not know if I’m prepared to buy a new electric guitar or electrical bass. So far I need each, however considering of getting guitar first. So your article was good because I lately learned that Royal Blood plays their major stuff on the bass.

Double Bass Players


  • Some funk, R&B and jazz, fusion teams use synth bass or keyboard bass somewhat than electrical bass.
  • Some new rock bands and bassist used a double bass, such as Lee Rocker of Stray Cats, Barenaked Ladies and Tiger Army.
  • Larry Graham, Bernard Edwards, Mick Hogan, Andy Fraser, and Mel Schacher used electric bass guitar.

I’m the kinda bassist that will get your consideration. The secret is yo get a nice, brilliant, punchy bass tone.

I assume their album is pure gold, and the perfect proof of how effective simplicity could be. I listened to Royal Blood, whom I had never heard of earlier than.

I mean, the primary reason I chose to play violin as an alternative of chello (my selection earlier than I switched) was as a result of I love taking part in the melody. I’m going to try to convince my pal to play bass (she has never played), so want me luck! Not as a result of I was a terrible guitar participant, and had to change to bass. But as a bass participant, I don’t want to be missed or forged aside.
