hey everyone!! ☀️☀️☀️ My name is sim, I’m a bassist, I decided to buy myself a bass guitar for my birthday on Halloween 2018. I’m still learning and don’t consider myself an expert by any means. It took a lot of courage to join the 1RAD challenge and post videos of me playing so I’m really grateful for this forum to connect with you all! I’m working to get better at improv and playing basslines on the play and laying down grooves (: i just love the low vibrations of the bass; the way it physically reverberates MY SOUL it’s like nothing else

That’s awesome, part of this is pushing through our comfort zones! I got a Shortscale bass around my birthday in 2020 after I sold my fretless as I didn’t connect with it well. So I mostly play guitar but in this challenge I’m trying to add bass grooves in there too. I got the bass in this pandemic times to write my own for the songs I create since I can’t get with anyone and also I like being self reliant with trying to be a Jane of all trades haha 

 

I’m by no means amazing but I’m ok and enough 🙂 I still push for more whatever my brain and hands can comprehend. I’m not fast shredder.

Hello fellow bassists! I first learned piano, then guitar in high school but found the instruments to be not what I was looking for- I loved playing rhythmic elements in both instruments and am so happy that I picked up bass, which has literally become the love of my life haha! It sits exactly where I want it to in a lineup- I’m just frustrated that I didn’t pick it up sooner. But I finally fought against the years of telling myself that as a woman no one would take me seriously (poison!!) and what a glorious, reviving journey it has been since. What are your favorite go-to riffs to just warm up with?

Never too late it’s important that you found the bass as your instrument! I picked up an uke at 31 and played a baritone for 4 years before crossing to guitar and then to switch between the that and bass this year. Our inner critics are the worse and don’t tell reality. For jamming I usually have lately used arpeggios of chords Root 3rd/3b and 5th to as riffs with chord changes.
