Easy bass tabs

Easy bass tabs.
Blues guitar yesterday and now today easy bass tabs. Bass has always been a bit of a mystery to me. Don't get get me wrong, it sounds so fantastic but there must be a real art to it.
Not much on the web either. Found this:- Bass tabs for Eagles: Take it easy . I see "for guitar tabs, bass tabs and chords. We also have a review section with Eagles CD reviews". If your into this sort of thing that could be quite helpful I suppose.
Popping over to Yuotube to see if I can find any tasty bits there.

How to play the guitar.

How to play the guitar.
Fine,its a bit like riding a bike. You know a some point you will come off and it looks a bit scary at first but once you know how,you just do it without thinking. The hard part is getting going and understanding that that using musical instruments need time to practice.
An acoustic guitar is natural starting point.Once you have the basics off,you may want to move on to a bass guitar or the electric guitar like a Telecaster guitar. There is even an electric bass guitar or for those people who are left handed,left handed guitars.
There would appear to be 3 basic learning methods.
Playing by ear. For those natually talented people of the world. That's definately not me by the way,I had to plug away for ages before anyone reconized anything I played.
Picking up a few chords or an easy riff and keep adding to your skill that way. Its supprising just how many start out like that. I did.
The full tuitional route. Either a musical teacher or a course of some kind.

What ever route the beginner guitar player takes,they can only improve as they progress with time. I found this on Youtube which could be of interest:-

Free Guitar Lessons

Free guitar lessons are they for real?
I thought I might continue on the other days theme about guitar lessons and such.
They do exist but are they any good?
Well yes and no.
Yes in a way because, like anything you want to do or are interested in,every scrap of information, tip or tick you can find will expand your knowledge on that subject. Imagine the scene, its your first guitar and you want to play that bit of the song on your own NOW! Not next week but now! You have no money to buy the big guitar course that your friend recommend, so you trawl around and find something related to your needs. It may be crap but you don't give a hoot about that.

No. If you really have your little heart set on getting good at guitar playing,well is nothing that a well laid out course can beat. Its just the way to go.
My personal favorite is the old Jamorama but there are many other excellent courses out there.

Online Guitar Lessons

Online Guitar Lessons. Sure these have a place in the great scheme of things I suppose.
Anyone wanting to be an overnight guitar hero could always find stuff on lets say 'beginner electric guitar'. They see the words, a picture forms in their mind. Fame,fortune and all the cool chicks or guys they could ever want to be near.
Ooh,I rather like the sound of that. Yet there is always a down side. Massive demands by the tax man, having a small army of people to look after you and not be able to walk down the high street without the mob tearing you shirt off!
I love the quite life anyway maybe just strumming a few guitar chords now and then.

Learn to play the guitar

Learn to play the guitar in next to no time.
That was a comment I herd while having a look around a discount guitar shop. I thought well only a really gifted guitar hero could do that.
I live in the real world, where learn and practice and practice some more, are the only real way to make a guitar sing out.

I asked the chap how a beginner could start out from cold. "Oh", he said,"how hard can it be?" You don't play guitar then I asked."No but so many people do,it must be easy."

I had thought about enlightening this Dumbo but thought better of it.


Been away...

Hi everyone, been taking some time out so might get back into the swing and start posting once more.
