The bass guitar lives between the rhythm guitar and the drums.
It produces sounds in a unique range and grounds the music it lives with.
Developing appropriate pressure on the fingerboard comes easily.
Before you know it, your right and left hands will be well synchronized.
Then, interesting bass lines are nor far away.
I particularly like using a series of books written by a former instructor at the Berklee College of Music.
There are additional worksheets that I have written to assist in learning the layout of the fingerboard and in coordinating your right and left hands fingers.
