Understanding the Learning Process of the Bass Guitar

This illustrates what I call “The Chain of Sound.”  When somebody plays their bass, this is the way the chain of sound occurs in order of importance:

1)  Spirit, Soul- YOU!

This is where the feel, heart and emotions of your sound come from.  Everybody is different and we all come from a variety of backgrounds which contributes significantly in creating the individually of sound and personality on the bass.  There will only ever be one Anthony Jackson, one Marcus Miller.  When Jaco passed away, that was it; nobody will ever replace him.  Because it’s not about notes on the paper, it’s all about the vibe, spirit and soul.
