: : Hi folks!
: : I settled on a Ovation A/E bass.
: : Now 2 questions to get me started.
: : What kind of pick should I use or should I use my finger?
: : Also how do I play a continious measure of "G" then "D"?
: : Thanks for all the previous advice!:)
: fingers or pick is entirely based on what type of sound you like. Who are your favorite bassist's? I guess it's best to learn both, you'll be more well rounded. What do you mean by a continuous measure of G then D? Do you mean moving from G to D? Or a mode that works either way? -b
My favorite bass player is Marshall Wilburn.
I know nothing about a bass or any other instrument!
I am going to take lessons in about a month but I want to try something easy to start practicing now!
I was told I could play a G and D rythm with open strings?
I am going to try and start practicing back-up to Fireball Mail.It has 6 measures of G then 2 measures of D and so on.
Now to the pic question.I guess I should LEARN with a pick to begi with? I was going to go buy a medium gauge flatpick but I dont really know.I want one that will have volume acoustically.
As you'll can tell,I am a novice!
Thanks for all the help!
