Leave your air guitar days behind and get your hands on a real bass guitar
that you can use to create awesome rhythms and beats.
Mastering guitar chords can be next to impossible without a great bass guitar in your hands. Whether you’re new to the guitar game or a pro at strumming those strings, the right guitar will help you create beautiful music and rocking melodies. Check out Best Buy’s sweet selection from top brands like Yamaha, Fender, Schecter, Squier, and Spector.
You’ll feel like a real rockstar with an electric bass guitar, which uses a bass amp to produce sound. Acoustic bass guitars don’t require an amp, which means they need heavier gauge strings for the sound to be heard clearly. Some people believe it’s harder to play an acoustic guitar because you’ll need to press down harder on the string. On the other hand, since you don’t need an amp or power to play these guitars, you can take them virtually anywhere.
The sound your instrument makes can be affected by the type of wood that is used to make it. For example, mahogany is known to produce loud and full-bodied sounds while maple wood adds a bright, crisp tone to your music. It should be noted that a well designed guitar should sound great no matter what material is used, but it does help to consider your tonewood before you make a purchase.
Most basses come in either 4-string, 5-string, or 6-string. The 4-string bass guitar is the most commonly used since there are less strings and a smaller guitar neck to contend with. However, some styles of music may require the creative, albeit more complex, freedom that 5-string and 6-string basses offer.
