A website will teach you methodology and music theory, but your best bet is to get private lessons from someone good. I've been playing bass for quite some time and at first I taught myself and got pretty good, I started getting lessons a few weeks ago and my playing has significantly improved. If it's just for hobby, websites are fine, but if your like me and hope to pursue it as a profession, private lessons are a must.

Practice, practice, practice, tune, and did I mention practice.

I like these these places. But I'm mostly southern rock, classic rock & blues player.

Good luck.

One more thing, then I'll leave you alone. LOL

It might be a little early for this.
But here is a great tool that will slow down music quips so that you can hear the notes better. I use this to figure out lead solo's. I know you just started, but, it might come in handy later.

After playing Acoustic for a few years in High School I quit playing and have recently picked up playing Bass. The g/f thought it would be good for me. I quickly got frustrated b/c electric instruments dont sound right w/o an amp and I wasnt going to go burn another $100 on a Bass Amp. I used a 1/4 to 1/8 line adapter to hook it into my computer and use Audacity to record whatever Im trying to play so I can critic my own playing against the original song. Now Im actually getting somewhere in my playing

I wish I could find a bass amp for $100. :thumbsup:

Good idea, I use a Tascam multitrack Portastudio 414 to record and mix. For the same reason, to see if I can get away with what I am playing. Plus, I can hook the Tascam to an amp, and jam over the top of tracks. So I can lay down a bass line, then a rhythm track, then I can practice solos, to see what licks and tricks will sound best. Also, this allows me to get the best (real) sound from my amp, and effects. :flowers:

Walmart (at least the one the near me) has beginners Bass and Guitar Amps for $80USD. But finding a quality one is impossible unless you go to flea markets and yard sales. The last one I looked at was $270 I think and It was a Peavy. The pedal I wanted was $79 (Echo, Reverb, Chorus, Overdrive, and 3 more effects) I said there was no way that I was paying that much. So I came up with that Idea
