If you are unsure about what to look for when buying a new bass, or want to know that you are buying a bass that is right for you, then don’t miss this video.
Don’t waste money and time buying instruments on a whim only to find you don’t like them.
In the video I show you what to inspect on the instrument if buying secondhand and also give you ideas of types of basses you might want to consider.
There is a free downloadable pdf checklist with a list of popular basses in the video description on YouTube.

Practice your solo bass playing and start getting into the Christmas spirit with my very own Greg’s Bass Shed, Christmas Carol Solo Bass Medley.
Download a free PDF of the Medley (also a Tab version), and practice it with the backing track at the end of the video. The PDF link is in the video description on YouTube.
I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I did making it. But be warned, it’s a bit of a ‘finger twister’ in places!
An Octave Pedal can really add an interesting effect to your bass sound. Whether that be to fatten the bottom end, create funky tones, or even produce synth-like sounds.
The MXR Bass Octave Duluxe pedal really delivers a variety of options. In this demo I explain the pedal controls and play with different settings.
See what you think.
