Article Body:
Bass guitar tab is an extremely popular way of writing bass guitar music.
If you are interested in becoming a bass guitarist you need to get
familiar with bass guitar music by playing the bass lines of some of your
favorite songs before you let your inner bass player off the chain.
Utilizing this handy tool you can learn how to be the bass player in a
band quickly without getting too much into boring theory.

The bass player's job is simply to keep time. Nothing could be easier.
Until you try to do it. So what is actually involved? The bass guitar
player keeps time by playing a 'bassline' which is usually a rhythmic'
sequence of notes. The bass player brings together the rhythmic playing
of the drummer with the melodies and chords played by the lead guitarist.
Do you need to be a talented musician to do this? Yes you do. The bass
guitar player is the guy who switches off his brain and becomes one with
the flow of the music. He then switches his brain back on and become the
designated driver for the rest of the band.

A novice bass guitarist may not immediately be able to follow (or lead)
the rest of the band right from the start. You might need some material
to work with while you ease into the job. Bass guitar tab gives the
guitar player written directions on what to play to give the bass line to
a song. Tablature is a written representation of the strings of the
guitar using numbers to show the frets. If you want to learn the bass
guitar quickly tab will help you. It is easy to pick up and to remember,
and it enables you to learn the riffs and phrases you need to give
structure to your band's music.

A bass guitar tab is a picture of the fret board which can be drawn using
Notepad on your computer or, if you like, by hand. The frets are numbered
on lines representing the guitar strings. If you have a four string bass,
the upper string is the G string, next the D string, the A string, and
the E string. The numbers below the lines are the frets where the notes
are played. If there is zero below the line it means the open string is
played. A chord is represented in bass guitar tabs by two numbers, one
above the other. Most bass guitar tabs contain a legend which explains
any unfamiliar terms.
With the history of rock music going back for generations tabs are
available for any song you can think of. The internet is by far the best
source for bass guitar tabs. Just do a Google search and you will have
more material than you will ever need. All you have to do is learn and
practice. Learn and practice your favorite songs first. Bass guitar is
not a musical instrument you can approach without passion. Bass guitar
riffs can be learnt from tab books but should be played from the heart.
