When you’re buying your first bass guitar for bass guitar lessons, there are a couple of things that you need to know. Firstly there’s getting the right size instrument! Bass guitars come in a few different sizes: for the younger beginner bassist, we would recommend getting a ½ size or ¾ sized Bass guitar. Either will be fine to get you started, so pick the size that feels most comfortable for you. For those picking up the instrument at a later stage, you should buy a full- size bass. Most basses that you see in a music shop will be a full-size so they are easy to spot. Ask about this in your bass guitar lessons.
There are two common types of bass guitars - acoustic and electric. It is most likely that you will play the electric bass, therefore you will also need an amplifier. It's worth going to your local music shop and seeing if they have a beginner pack which includes a bass guitar, amplifier, plectrums, and a jack lead (which connects the instrument to the amp.)
For an all-inclusive beginner kit, you will be looking at a price between £120- £200. For just a beginner bass guitar on its own, you should look in the region of £100-£200 although there are some options for under £100. Finally, for just the bass amp on its own, you’ll be looking in the region of £150- £300.
Presuming that you have decided to take bass guitar lessons with an electric bass, it is likely that you will come across the terms 'Precision Bass' and 'Jazz Bass'. These are the two most well-known types of bass guitar produced by Fender. However, other companies also produce instruments based on these designs, sometimes calling them P style, or J body - so it is good to know the differences between the two.
The precision bass has a similar body style to the Fender Stratocaster guitar. This bass has been very popular with rock, pop, punk and indie players. Famous players include Sting, Pino Palladino, Nate Mendel, and Mark Hoppus.
The jazz bass has what we call an 'offset body'. This is more similar to the Fender Jazzmaster or Jaguar guitar. The shape was primarily designed for jazz players who performed sitting down. So it is worth trying this style of bass standing up, to check that it feels comfortable to you. It's also worth mentioning that the neck will feel a lot slimmer than the P bass.
Of course, these are not the only two styles of bass that you can pick up. However, they are the most common and have been super influential on other bass designs. Other designs include a Sting-Ray from Ernie Ball, as well as bass designs based on famous guitars, including the SG Bass by Epiphone, and the Jazzmaster Bass, also by Fender.
At MusicTeachers.co.uk, we are always there to help connect students with their perfect tutor. If you have any questions about bass guitar lessons, call us on 07946 125613 or get in touch by e-mail [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you!
