• Welcome to Bass Guitar Post – How to Play Bass Guitar.

The following are exercises you should get used to. This way, your playing will sound great and your fingers will be trained.

There are no songs only exercises.

Aim to begin your practice sessions with exercises and then go into songs. This is just my way of practicing but I find it to be the most efficient and most endorphin producing.

When you actually start to play your songs you play better because your fingers are all warmed up and if you do it right they will be on fire.

As an old buddy used to say: “Do it Right.”
