  1. Very helpful thank u!

  2. Good video! This video is pretty accurate regarding the bass in bluegrass music. Similar in folk music as well. If you really want to fit in it seems like you need to play an upright bass (aka bass violin). Whenever I play an electric bass I get stink eye from some of the other players. Kind of sad because electric bass can sound just fine.

  3. Great lesson but it would be helpful if I could hear the bass notes being played so I could use my ears to assist my learning as I am tending to have to look at my bass simultaneously while trying listen to follow along with the lesson.
