I find that the music I like best involves chords that include a wide array of tones. I can tolerate the high pitch note but prefer the medium notes and especially bass that vibrates. I am not interested in hearing bass from the car that pulls up next to me on the street but I do enjoy hearing the harmony from a good set of notes blended together.
Did you know that the bass guitar originated as a vertical instrument? Well, it did and was only changed to be a horizontally held guitar in the 1930’s. Generally, the bass guitar has a larger body, a longer neck and scale length, and normally four to five strings tuned an octave lower in pitch, to put it into the bass range. Originally made from very expensive wood, these days a quality instrument at fair pricing can be found to fit the needs of the beginner to the most experienced musician. Check out Hofner at musicians friend for an excellent example of a quality bass guitar.
