What sites do Bass players recommend?
« on: December 27, 2016, 03:11:38 pm »
I can't find a bass equivalent of this site which is a real shame. Is there anything anywhere near as well organised and deep (and free!) you guys can recommend?

I noticed Justin seems to have 3 or 4 bass related lessons on this site but focused on guitar.

So is there anything out there? I'm a guitarist who has a bass and is unsure how to really get started.

I'm also looking for bass lessons similar in style to Justin's guitar lessons.  I finished Justin's beginner level and rewarded myself with a Fender bass, so now I need to get going on bass lessons as I start the intermediate level for guitar.

So talkbass.com seems to be a big online community.

For lessons I can find no free comparable place to this site which maybe isn't so surprising, But I'd recommend checking out ScottsBassLessons. There'sa  bunch of free lessons on Youtube and the main site  to give you a flavour, but all the structured courses require paid membership (there's a free trial).

If you don't object to paying for stuff, I think it's a great resource.

Try www.studybass.com

It's not blindingly obvious where the lessons are but they are there!

But to try and give you a start try this page...

Also try on Youtube musiccollegetv

They have over 100 videos, the guy is good and ery thorough.

Talking Bass as advised is also good.

I dabbled for a couple of months with a Bass before deciding to concentrate on a 6 string for a couple of years and hence I have tried both but did not subscribe to the pay version of TB
