What happens if a bass guitar gets wet?

It depends on what parts get wet, if you get a tiny splash on some of the body/paintwork etc or the neck, provided you clean it off quickly it shouldn't cause a problem. If water gets into the electrics however its likely to cause terrible damage and the internal parts (pick ups etc) will need to be replaced. If its sits on the neck too long (or if it gets into the body if the paint is chipped or poor) it will cause the wood to warp and swell which will also ruin the bass. Wet strings will rust (obviously) which is why they should be changed regularly (depending how much you play) to prevent rusting even if you don't get water on your bass (skin flakes and oils from your fingers rust the strings just like water would.)

Where do you put a guitar pick holder on a guitar?

Although many people put it near the base of the neck, there is no proper location for a pick holder. Place it where it is most convenient to reach for a pick while playing, provided you can still put the guitar in the case and close it.

How do you play Godzilla roar on guitar?

To play Godzilla roar on guitar, you use the highest string (meaning the string with the highest pitch) in this way. You first put your 4th finger in the 5th box (these boxes are called frets, and will be called that from here onward; they are ordered from the top so the highest fret is the 1st fret), then you do a down scale to the first finger. Repeat this step, and then then do the 4th fret twice, then the down scale, then up, then do a shift so every finger should be up at least 2 frets and repeat.

Is rockburn a good electric guitar?

never heard of it, but a quick google search and you'll see for sure from reviews. BC Rich is my favorite, sure they look death metal for most but they are very unique and everyone (big rockstars) have played them.

May 2013

To the best of my knowledge, Rockburn is just a name slapped onto a Student model Chinese made guitar. Rockburn also sells and distribute drums and other musical instruments. Being a student type guitar the manufacturing process is as much quality as any and since most mfgs are using CNC machines to cut and produce them quickly. So the machining may be nice, but the question lies in the wood used, gluing electronics, hardware and paint. These would be the areas to skimp.

However, as a beginner/student why go pay for a guitar that you may never keep interest in or plain give up. If you accomplish the desire of playing, once your skills improve, go treat yourself to a step up. Many next step guitar companies have affordable lines to choose from. Like Fender, Dean, Gibson, Epiphone, Jay Turser and on and on.

Be realistic in you first guitar purchase and don't spent money unnecessarily.

Have confidence in you skills to constantly improve and be an Artist!

When was the first bass guitar invented?

The original bass guitar was developed by Paul Tutmarc in the 1930s as a replacement for the double bass, but he received little success for the invention. In the 1950s Leo Fender (who, obviously, is the man who started Fender) took the idea and introduced the first mass-produced bass guitar on the market, the Precision bass. This was hugely popular and since then bass guitars have become the norm in all bands, and variations upon the Precision are still made and extremely popular.

Can you put guitar strings on bass guitar l?

Although i ave never tried this myself, i would not recomend it. Firstly, basses are normally longer than standard guitars, so the strings might not fit. Secondly, it totally defeats the object of having a bass fi you're going to shove strings that would make it sound like a guitar on it.


=======


Even short-scale basses are usually at least 30 inches long, and regular basses are 34 inches. The grooves cut on the nut of a bass are too large for guitar strings, and bass bridges were not designed to hold down guitar strings. The string spacing of a bass is completely unsuitable for guitar-style playing.


If you want a guitar with a bass feel, try a baritone guitar.

What is a bass guitar responsible for in a band?

The basic responsibility of a bass player is to initiate the groove. In a rock band, the bass is the only instrument being rythmic as well as melodic, so it's here to create the rythmic and melodic backbone of the song.

I always think of the bass and drums as the engine room of the band. The foundation for everything else to build upon.

What does the balance knob on a bass guitar do?

The balance knob on a bass is used to change the balance between which pick-up you are using.

If you turn it right down then you will use only the back pick up and will have a more jazz-type sound, whereas if you turn it up fully you will get more of a rock sound. Anywhere in between and the sound will be picked up from both pick-ups, more from one than the other, or both equally if you have the knob halfway. Try adjusting it to until you get the type of sound you yourself want.

What are some job fair tips?

Get lots of copies of your resume ready to go. Plan well which booths you will visit, so your time doesn't run out. I'm sure you won't want to spend the whole afternoon jumping from employer to employer. Don't limit yourself to just booths that fit your interests. Look for generics (but relevant) or alternatives. Be sincere! When you sit to talk with one of the recruiters, they know you are nervous, and they don't expect you to have a huge resume. If they wanted more experience, they wouldn't be at a job fair. Try learning a bit of each company you plan to visit, such as their competitors, products, philosophies and what are some of their company policies. Use that to your advantage. This is the most important part, you must know the ins and outs of a company or you'll never get an interview. The related link has more tips. Answer Don't go for jobs with bad people. Seriously there is a reason why a company is looking when turnover of staff is high. Heaven help you if you walk into that job.

How can you play your bass with small fingers?

With a small bass! Forget your dreams about a Fender Jazz Bass if you've got small hands.

Go for a short scale and a thin neck - look for a Gibson SG or a Fender Mustang, they have a 30" scale, which makes them a lot more comfortable to play with when you have tiny hands.
