Taking bass guitar lessons sure can be a lot of fun. Yet they can also be very confusing if you are just starting out. It’s tough to know what you should begin with and what direction you should take.
When I was a beginner I struggled to get started on bass. I found it really difficult and some days felt like giving up. Luckily I didn’t but when something seems so hard it stops being fun. So I decided to stop struggling and to try something new.
What I had been doing so far obviously was not working. I had been taking beginner bass guitar lessons with my friends Google and Youtube. This is where I had been going wrong because I had no focus. I jumped from lesson to lesson with no connection between them and no clue what order I should be learning everything in.
If you’re currently a “Google Bass Guitarist” then it’s not your fault if you too are having a tough time learning bass like I was. With so much information out there trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together yourself is an up hill battle.
So what I did is I started investing in my bass playing. I bought some books, DVDs and took some online bass guitar lessons. You know what happened? With 6 months I was in my first band on stage playing in front of an audience, which included my friends and family.
It was great finally getting up there and playing the music I love. The smiling faces of my family and friends who were finally proud of me and what I had accomplished. It was a great experience I’ll never forget.
I’m so glad I did what it took to make my dream come true. Years later I now teach bass guitar lessons
online. I help people who were stuck like me and give them the skills they need quickly.
