Our bass lessons start with the basics like holding the instrument, proper right and left hand positioning and the basics of music like note reading, understanding rhythm and other skills. We can then move on to areas of music study like arpeggios, scales, bass line construction, learning bass parts from existing music and improving overall technique. Unique to the electric bass is the fun technique of ‘thumbing and popping’
