In this lesson we will introduce you to the parts of the electric bass and how they function together to create the notes and tone of the instrument. This is the first lesson of the program and is intended for beginners.
In this lesson, I will show you how to mute a note using your left hand or the hand that is on the neck of the bass. Muting notes is just as important as plucking notes, making for cleaner bass playing.
In this lesson, I will combine the techniques of muting strings with both hands together. This is the complete muting technique that will ensure you don't have any ringing strings that aren't part of your bass line.
