Ask Anything to do with music

Now Im creating this thread to help new up-and-coming guitarists, Bassists, Drummers, or in fact any musician alike to ask any questions they have that is just not quite hitting them right. Such as modes, major\minor scales reading manuscript, mastering harmonics, having trouble remembering chords. Anything, just post a comment and me or someone else will help you. Joe

Hi dude, your intentions are good but we have an entire forum for this kind of thing. Additionally I hope your advice is correct, because the regulars here will destroy you for any missteps you make.

Cheers.

Are modes and scales useless and should we not bother learning them?

Since bass has been brought up: Why do people claim bass is easy to learn/play? I see no logical reason.

I mean, to me it seems both are as easy or as hard as you want them to be (with the guitar you can use power chords and play 3 chord songs all day every day, which is as easy as it gets).

Fewer strings = easier to play. Since I don't slap n pop my bass technique is real similar to my guitar technique and by that rationale it's easier to play.

But people hardly use all 6 strings at once. I mean there's even a thread where some guy was asking why should anybody play major and minor chords with more than 3 notes.

i may only have 4 strings (for now!) but by god i use every bit of them, and it's not uncommon for me to play extended chords.

there's so much territory where the guitar dominates that you forget that you can use over the first few frets on a bass, but there's just something about the high mids on a bass that makes chords sing as fully as a piano (or a harp if you have some banjo background, yolo)

i just couldn't ever get that on a guitar. the only tuning that satisfied me at all was B F# C# D A E but it just didn't have that deepness and the foundations that a bass innately has. i'd have to be playing an 8 string to hit that level, and that just doesn't reflect how i approach instrumentation or i'd have gone for that instead of selling off all my guitar equipment lol
