Question: Is Bass Fun To Play Alone?

Is Bass more fun than guitar?

I find bass more fun to play because you can do so much more on it compared to a guitar.

You can lay down a foundation thick enough for everyone to stand upon.

Or you can go wild shred around in both lows and highs.

You might say “but you’ve got higher octaves on a guitar”..

Is Bass boring to play?

bass does not get boring, i play both guitar and bass and while guitar is fun for certain things i find the bass to be far more expressive (imo), this isnt to say other people will or should, as it is all down to preference.

Why is bass so underrated?

The bass is underrated because it is a support instrument. It is not a “lead” instrument. Bass does not carry the melody, it does not play solos (generally), and does not attract a lot of attention.

Is Bass a good first instrument?

Bass is the superior instrument (and first instrument) by far. When you learn bass, you have to learn how to feel the beat of the song, sync with the kick and play rhythms that compliment the lead. Once you can do this, chords on guitar are fairly easy to learn.

Is bass guitar worth learning?

YES. Best advice here. The strings on a bass are (normally) just the bottom 4 guitar strings, so it’s really only different technique, and if you go for tab rather than notes, that’s pretty easy as well. The classic advice here is guitar if you want to write songs, bass if you want to play in bands.

Can you play bass by yourself?

There’s nothing wrong with bass without band. Honestly I often find it more convenient (and my live performances have lately been about 50:50 solo vs. accompanied). You can do so much more alone, especially since it’s far easier to break out of the instrument’s traditional role when playing alone.
