Watch the Stu U: Solo Bass online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Solo Bass

As an instrument, the electric bass guitar is still in its infancy and evolving. While the traditional role of the bass in a band is to "hold down the bottom" by establishing the root note and tonality of the chord, the second half of the 20th Century saw an explosion of electric bass players who dared to push the boundaries of the instrument. In this course, I'll offer you 8 solo bass compositions that can be played as a suite. Each piece will also show you a different technique or style you can use to make your music more interesting. At the finish of this course you'll be able to use these ideas to create your own solo bass pieces.
