Lesson #3 How to Hold the Bass Guitar
Proper technique right from the start is an important part of learning to play the bass guitar. If you opt to not learn proper technique both with how you hold the bass as well as your left and right hands then you’re going to be creating a bottle neck for your progress later on. In this beginner bass guitar lessons Lane on Bass is going to show you how he likes to hold his bass while practicing. Take note of his points on practicing the same way you intend on perform. This is especially true if you intend on playing with your bass guitar slung down below your waste (a difficult position but done successfully by some metal bassists).
Again this is the “boring” stuff about learning to play the bass but it’s the foundation, and without a strong foundation you’ll find yourself having difficulty later on as you progress.
