Cheap Bass Guitars

Bass GuitarBass Guitar ProductsThe electric bass guitar is simply known as bass. This musical instrument is played primarily by using the fingers or thumb through tapping, plucking, popping, slapping, or thumping or with a plectrum.

The bass guitars look similar in appearance to an electric guitar, but they have a larger body with a longer neck and length. The bass guitars generally have four strings and these strings are tuned to the same pitches like the double bass that relates to the pitches (with one octave lower than the four lower strings – E, A, D and G. The bass guitar is notated in bass clef for avoiding the excessive use of ledger lines. Alike the electric guitar, the bass guitars are plugged into an amplifier and speaker when the artists give stage performances.

The electric bass guitars have replaced the double bass largely since the1950’s in pop music playing the role of bass instrument for the rhythm. The basslines played by the guitarist vary from one kind of music to another and the guitarist plays a similar role in all times: from anchoring the framework to lay down the beat. The bass guitars are used in many music styles like pop, rock, metal, blues, country and jazz. This guitar is used as a soloing instrument for fusion, jazz, funk, latin and also in some metal and rock styles.

Performing -
Most artists stand while playing bass guitars, but sitting is also accepted when in large ensemble settings like jazz big bands or folk music. Well, it’s a matter of personal preference as which position gives the greatest ease to the player. While sitting, the right-handed artists can balance the bass guitars on their right thigh or like the classical players place it on their left thigh.. Balancing the bass on the left thigh positions it in such a way that it mimics the standing position, allowing for less difference between the standing and sitting positions.

    Guys, I wanted to share it with everyone here. This site is really great as I found no other place like this that sells quality instruments at such cheap prices. From the huge collection here, I searched for my favorite ESP bass guitars and luckily I also found it in my favorite color that I always wanted it with. I enjoy playing my guitar with my family whenever I have free time to spend.
