Do you play an instrument???

40 posts in this topic

In school when I took music as a class lesson, it was interesting because I had an academic background to music, but there was a classmate who who could throw out some gorgeous chords on the piano, without lessons, and couldn't tell you what a cadence was. Crazy talent.

i just bought a bass on black friday. turned out to be the only decent deal all day online or not. a shiny new Ibanez 6 string.

Ever since trying to record bass for my Warrior remix on a horrible quality borrowed bass, ive wanted to get one. its really fun and a nice change of pace from guitar. pics to come...

Ah, that's cool!

This is going to be a dumb question, but what's the main difference between a guitar and a bass?

its not a dumb question. a bass is all about the low end frequencies or bass and guitars are usually for higher or treble frequencies. basses can hit notes much much lower than a guitar can hope to and guitars can in turn hit notes much much higher. basses are usually much larger and longer than a guitar in order to handle the much thicker strings.

yes active indeed. this bass was a heck of a bargain. it blows my friends american made, aka super expensive, Fender bass away in every way. i have messed around with basses in the past but never owned one and never played any with more than 4 strings. i wanted my own BUT i didnt want to worry about need a more extended range and have to buy so rather ambitiously and maybe a bit arrogantly, i just dove right into 6 string territory. sink or swim i thought. im swimming ^_^

right now starting off with easy slap stuff like RHCP higher ground and a lot of no doubt tragic kingdom era stuff for nor finger style. um yeah a bit of kimbra too haha :D

Sorry mods if Im posting this in the wrong section or if this has been created before. Basically its about What instrument do you play or want to play? I used to play the chello and now kinda play the piano and keyboard in free time. But what Instument do you play or want to play?

I think this thread can be about both.

First I need to get a guitar...
