Bass Guitar Lessons
Many young rock star wannabies are assigned bass guitar duties in the group on the assumption that it's easy. And bass is easy-easy and boring if you think it's enough to just hit a root note(what's that?) every now and again.

If you want to get the best enjoyment out of playing bass you need to study chord structure, keys, timing, scales, fretboard, improvising, different genres and styles of bass guitar . The bass guitar lessons incorporate examples of all of these requisite skills that make you a musician playing great bass guitar.
