Meet David

"I'd been playing the guitar for twenty years before discovering the bass. At the time I was transcribing some recordings by The Beatles and became fascinated by Paul McCartney's wonderful bass lines. So I bought a bass just to try them out, and became immediately hooked. Fifteen years on, I'm still hooked. I love the bass!"

Learning to play the bass

Some people know instinctively the bass is the instrument for them. Others need to try it out first. Whether you know already, or need to come and give it a go, one thing's certain: some people are born to play the bass.

And there's a good reason why some people love it so much. With its deep, rich tones, the bass is at the very heart of the musical experience, providing the rhythmic and harmonic glue that bonds drums and all other instruments together.

The good news is, of all the instrument, the bass is the easiest to pick up and play. In fact you don't even need to be 'average' to learn how to make a basic, but real and valuable, musical contribution on your first lesson!

Not that you'll want to stay at that level for long. The role of the bass is so varied and versatile, from classic foot-stamping riffs to more melodic connections between notes—even learning how to 'walk' the bass between chord changes. And if you're not quite sure what that means, you soon will.
