How to Play the Acoustic Bass?

Hi, it’s Steve Bauman from Summerhays Music in Murray, Utah, and we’re talking about the
bass today and this is an acoustic bass. The acoustic bass is kind of a mix between an
electric bass and an acoustic guitar. It’s like an electric bass because it’s still held
in the same way, it’s not an upright bass. So it’s held in the same way as a guitar or
an electric bass is. And also it’s played like an electric bass where you play with
your first two fingers here. Except for instead of resting your fingers on a pickup, or your
thumb rather, on a pickup, you’re going to rest your thumb either on the top string here
and just play like that. Or you’re going to rest it up against the body. Or you’re just
going to float out and out there and just hit it with the two fingers. You can also
play with a pick or with your fingers or however is comfortable for you. Now, the way that
it’s like an acoustic guitar is the way that it makes sound. ‘Cause where on electric bass
it makes sound based off the pickups, the magnetic pickups that pick up the sound, where
an acoustic guitar or an acoustic bass the string vibrates, goes down through the sound
hole, the sound bounces off the back and the sides of the instrument and it vibrates the
top of the instrument. And so it projects the sound that way. Completely different,
although there is also a preamp on most acoustic basses where you can plug it in and make an
electric bass of course. So, this is Steve Bauman and for any questions or if you want
to comment on any of this, go to Summerhaysmusic.com.
