A bass looks like a massive violin or cello. It stands to about mid-chest level. A double bass is much larger and stands usually to about your head. A Bass Guitar is more like an Electric Guitar in size.

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 double bass looks like a large cello or violin.A bass looks like a guitar with four, five, or six strings, and it has a lower sound than a guitar.A double bass would be found in a orchestra or a jazz band.A bass would be found in a rock or pop band.Hope this helps!

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.

on a five string bass guitar there are five strings, and on a six string bass guitar there are six strings

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 double bass is much deeper than a cello and the double bass is also much bigger.

The bass guitar was designed to be a replacement for a double bass, with the portability of a guitar. It shares the tuning of the double bass, and the body style of an electric guitar. I would say that it evolved from a combination of the two.

The electric bass guitar came from the double bass. It is the family that includes the violin,viola,cello,and double bass. The electric bass has the same tuning and same range as a double bass.

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

Yes. A bass strap is thicker so that it can support the weight of the bass, while the guitar strap is thinner because guitars are lighter than bass-guitars.Hope this helped :-)

A bass clef is used when playing bass guitar because you are plaing bass notes. Because you are using your left hand and not your ritght(treble clef).

A Bassist plays the Bass guitar. A Guitarist plays the "non-bass" guitar. Both are technically guitarists - The bass player provides the bottom of the sound.

Because the bass guitar was conceived as a "guitar" version of the upright double bass, and is tuned to the same pitches. The upright double bass has - four strings.

The Contrabass and Double Bass are just different names for the same instrument. It can also be called String Bass as well.

An electric base guitar is usually tuned an octave lower than an electric lead guitar.

In a sense, both are electric. A typical 'Electric Guitar' is for notes in the treble clef, and is generally capable of playing any melody. A Bass guitar is for notes in the bass clef, as the name suggests. It generally plays the lower parts underneath the melody.

i think like a rhythm guitar, lead guitar, bass guitar, and a drum kit complete with double bass
