If you sing inside your vocal range, you’ll probably realize you’re better than you thought!
‘Cos they ain’t this small.
The secret is Shifting instead of Stretching.
Yes, I know about "Feel Good Inc." by the Gorillaz and "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen. I just love the sound of a bass guitar and want to hear it more clearly in a song.
Rickenbachers are overrated.
I have just recently bought my 3rd bass, it’s a 5 string and boy I love it. Whenever I show people though, they always ask if I’m going to sell my first bass. My first bass was this awful v shaped bass with broken knobs and hard as shit to tune, but that was my very first bass that my brother gave me for Christmas. I learned all my basics on that thing, and I wouldn’t be here without that damn thing. It means so much to me so nope, won’t sell it!
There is a point to this post though, and that is no matter what bass you have, whether you think it’s a big poopy bass and you’ll never play again or if you think you need something better or you can’t play, just keep playing! A bass is a bass no matter how stinky it may be, and whatever you have you can still learn from. Keep learning and practicing everyone!!

ive been playing for about 2 and a half years now, and im only 16, using my pinky is straight up not feasible, its too weak and my overall technique is right on the neck (with my thumb close to the e string, not much room), however im perfectly capable with playing as is, my ring finger can reach pretty much the same distance as my pinky, so im not sure whether i need to completely reset my technique, and if thats the case, how would i even do that? also ive seen other bass players infinitely more skilled than i am wrapping their thumb up on the fretboard, and others leaving it lying on the back, help would be greatly appreciated, and sorry for the text wall for a simple question :)
I'll be DJing a few sets in a week for my friend's girlfriend birthday party, and I normally play a lot of dark bass house, like Dillion Nathaniel, Alan Walker, Ak9, Koos, RageMode, Matroda, etc.
But my friend's girlfriend is super into heavy dub step/riddim. I love and enjoy that kind of music too, especially when playing it live as they get the party lit.
So I'm coming to reddit to add any crazy dubstep, trap, riddim, or bass house songs you can recommend.
Please shoot me the hardest and filthiest shit you guys know.
I love the sound of a jazz bass but not really the feel. Any suggestions?
Last summer, I received a Dropped Copper Musicman Stingry Special HH from my aunt and uncle. They're the most supportive people in my family, most others in my family don't support my music career and think it's a waste of time. But they truly believed in me and want me to succeed, so they bought me a professional level instrument. It was the most wonderful gift I had ever been given, and it was my most prized possession by a mile. Flash forward to a couple months ago. My car breaks down, and we have to take it to the shop. After weeks of waiting, we find out we have to replace the head gasket, which is about a 1500 dollar repair. My parents say they wont pay for any of it, and leave it in my hands. I'm in instant panic mode. I'm 18, about to move out of my house, was in between jobs, and I needed my car. When i asked them to please help, they gave me one response. Sell my stingray. And so I did just that. I sold the most precious thing in the world to me to throw myself into the world... keep reading on reddit ➡

The whole episode is about Bravo / Reality TV and worth listening to.
Just because your favorite DJ makes thicc wubs doesn't mean he's incapable of being a rapist.
Space Jesus has been systemically using his position of power to feed drugs to under-aged girls for years and take advantage of them. There have been dozens of accounts, but every time it comes up in this sub, it gets downvoted into oblivion.
Instead of downvoting opinions you don't like, maybe consider your bias first. Consider why you don't like to hear what you're rejecting. Is it because it's unlikely or because it's inconvenient? We need to do better as a scene and defend the women who come forward with their stories of abuse.
I saw this from a Noisia video a while ago.
Quite often if you just cut 400-600 hz by maybe 4 dB your synth basses will sound correct in the mix with respect to the drums.
I've been listening to a few reference tracks, and have been looking at how they manage to get such a "punchy" sub region (i.e. below 200hz) - this is especially for the commercially released stuff, from major labels.
Originally I thought this punch was only really in genres like hip-hop, where its mainly just an 808 playing (alongside the vocals and the drums), but a lot of indie/alt/pop music also manage to retain this sub end.
I think it must mainly be due to having fairly sparse arrangements, with a light low-mid region to prevent muddiness, but I feel there must be another element to it. It feels like the low end is heavily compressed/ possibly even limited, as I'm suprised it doesn't cause any clipping/audible distortion.
Wonder if you guys have any thoughts?
Oh look, its one of those posts again, i apologise as im sure youve seen a hundred people ask this, ive read through other reddit posts but i figured id rather make my own and get responses specific to myself and situation..
So just got a band together, however we have 3 guitarists and no bassist.. i think you can see where this is going... out of the 3 im the weakest guitarist so i said id take on the bass while the other guys get their shred on..
Honestly, ive never been a shredder anyways, ive never liked those fast bleep bloop solos, whenever ive played guitar i was always a rythme guy, playing thick chunky riffs.
Another thing to note is that the few times ive played bass in the past (just having a go of friends) it felt a million times more comfortable, ive got ADHD and constantly tap my fingers on both hands and i guess thats probably helped alot because whenever ive picked up a bass my hands are in great sync with eachother... wheras my hand sync with a pick on guitar, usi... keep reading on reddit ➡
