Frequently Asked Questions about Beginner Bass Guitars

Question: What do I need to know before buying a beginner’s bass guitar?
Bass guitars come in different sizes! Full size bass guitars can be very long so it may well be more comfortable to play a short-scale or ¾ size bass. Bass guitars typically have four strings but it’s not uncommon to see basses with five strings. Five string basses have an extended range and are often used in jazz, metal and fusion styles. If you are interested in learning these styles it may be worth getting a five string bass.
Question: What is the best beginner's bass guitar?
The best beginner bass guitar for you might not be the best for someone else. The first thing to consider is the size: bass guitars can be pretty long. It might be worth looking into ‘short-scale’ basses or, even smaller, ¾ size basses to ensure your first bass is comfortable! The next question is ‘what style of music would you like to play?’. If you like metal or hard rock, a bass by Jackson may be best for you, whereas, if you like pop, soul and indie, a Squier bass would suit you better.
Question: What are some easy bass guitar songs for beginners?
There are dozens of brilliant bass lines that are really easy to play. Some favourites include Taxman by the Beatles, Stir it Up by Bob Marley, Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana, Psycho Killer by Talking Heads and Time is Running Out by Muse. Learning these songs would be a great start to your bass career!
