If you do, don’t! I do, and it can seem awkward at times, but if it helps you get into the swing, so much the better. Now if you are a pianist, there are a lot of things I like to note.
A. The first I want to say is that if you are playing your bass in a concert hall, you are NOT supposed to play it all at once. The rest of the keys will always feel a little bit off of you with only three other hands (and that’s an odd number of keys anyway) so in terms of tempo you will definitely be “lagging” because you have to keep the “main” tempo. If you’re playing on a big stage and have a lot of space, you can get away with playing the first two octaves (the “flat” range) with one hand at a time, then playing three octaves with the other hand and keep everything together. It’s fine.
Q. If I was on the piano bench and someone tapped me on the shoulder, I would have to hit them back with my stick. Do you have any recommendations on what I could do to keep my hitting from distracting folks?
A. I wouldn’t go all the way down to the point of hitting the back of the head with the stick. The point of the tapping on the shoulder is really to get that last bit of tension to help your fingers get down the string, not because you want somebody to slap the back of your head.
Q. What is the difference between a jazz bass player and a classical bass player?
A. As a beginner the most important thing is to learn your instrument, then learn the chord structure and how it fits with the song. Once you have understood that, then learning the jazz bass solo can be a breeze. The main thing is to learn some rhythm.
Q. What is the single most important thing I can learn about playing jazz bass guitar?
A. Your teacher is the single most important thing. You should not have any expectations about how your teacher or any particular teacher will react to any given lesson and, more importantly, you should listen very carefully to what he/she is saying. You should also remember that nobody is as good at teaching you as you are.
Q. Have you ever tried playing bass with fingers alone?
A. Once again, it depends on your individual needs. If you play as your entire hand is tied down,
