First of all, a "bass-guitar" is not a "bass-guitar" it's a electric bass. To tell the difference between a electric bass and a guitar is the electric bass has a lower sound to fit into the beat and the guitar has a higher pitch sound, even a acoustic guitar.

A bass guitar is an octave lower than a guitar, for example the first string on a guitar is an E string that produces an E note when struck, the first string on a four string bass guitar is an E also and when struck also produces an E note, just this note is an octave lower than the guitars

second thickest if its a 4 string bass or 6 string guitar

A four string mimics the first four strings in a guitar, E, A, D, and G, only one octave lower. A five string has a low bass string, the B, and keeps the other four. So the names are B, E, A, D, and G.

There are several differences between electric bass and an acoustic guitar. A bass guitar has only four strings, which are thicker, while an acoustic guitar has thinner strings and has six of them.

The lowest note on an acoustic guitar is an open E, on the E string. the equivalent note on a bass guitar is the second fret of the D string, or the 7th fret of the A string, or the 12 fret of the E string..

The G string. On a five string bass The strings are B-E-A-D-G

Depends on how many strings the guitar has, A regular six string guitar will have six, a seven string guitar will have seven, a twelve string guitar will have twelve. Same thing with bass guitars Regular four string has four tuning pegs where as a five string bass has five,

No. Because of the thickness of the strings, an ordinary 6-String electric guitar could not produce a sound that low compared to a regular bass guitar. For example the size of the strings for a 6-String electric guitar varies between 0,008 and 0,046 - thinner than the bass guitar's strings 0,050 and 0,110.

The thickest string on a bass guitar is called the E string, as it plays an E when open.

the difference between bass and guitar is a bass normally has 4 or 5 strings but guitars have 6 strings. bass guitars are used for rhythm most of the time but guitars are usually used for melody. bass guitars are 1 octave below guitars.

A bass guitar is really low sounding and the highest string on a bass guitar is the lowest on an electric guitar.

tonally, the lowest string on the bass guitar is E. However, this can be tuned down to suit varying pitches/keys of music

the bass guitar as with any string instrument is keyed mainly to c but each string has its own separate key so you have to acknowledged that

Treble cleff for normal 6 string guitar. Bass clef for 4 BASS guitar.

The most common bass guitar is the four string bass. It is possible to use just one string during a bass solo, as a skilled player can create a variety of notes and effects with just the one string.

# Electric # Fretless # Acoustic # Semi-acoustic # 5-string, 6-string, 7-string (single strings) # 8-string (four double courses in octaves) # 12-string (four triple courses; one bass string and two unison octave strings) # Baritone guitar (short-scale electric 6-string bass tuned between guitar and standard bass) # Piccolo bass (medium-scale 4-string bass tuned an octave up for solo work) # Ashbory bass (extra-short-scale fretless with silicone rubber strings) # MIDI bass controller # 1-string, 2-string, 3-string (made by Atlansia as well as custom makers) There are probably others, but that's a dozen off the top of my head.

Yes, infact, slap sounds better on a 5 string bass than it does on a 4 string in my opinion.

Yes, a four string bass guitar and a double bass have the same open strings. Both types of bass have the same open strings, and the strings are the same pitches.

When you play the bass guitar chord it is longer than the acoustic guitar chord and the acoustic is for country or rock songs
