Hey guys,
I sold my bass to a friend of mine and he's asked if I could give him some lessons. I agreed to and we organised to have the first one. I'm primarily a lead guitarist but I know enough on bass to teach someone that doesn't have a clue.
But i'm not sure what things to go through in the first lesson.

Right hand 'walking' technique, layout of a fretboard, maybe one basic riff like Another One Bites The Dust, anything else? I'm not sure

teach him the notes on the fretboard, and then tell him to go to a bass teacher. as your not a bassist, you can teach him bad habits without even knowing it.

The parts of the bass and what they do.

Fretting technique.

How to pluck the string. Leave walking for a bit. Just get down consistant 8ths on each string first.


and at the end play smoke on the water. That's a rite of passage.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.
If he knows absolutly nothing teach him the string names, maybe a simple riff that he can keep playing over again so he feels like he's got something. maybe show him a good amp setting and some secrets to the instrument
