The electric bass is the basis of every rhythmic pattern in a musical ensemble. The bass was made in the 1930s for easier movement than the bulky double bass. Over the years it gradually replaced the double bass, so today it is used in almost all genres of music rock, jazz, pop, heavy metal, country, blues as a solo instrument, while in classical orchestras, it is usually part of the rhythmic part of the ensemble. Through the bass lessons the student will learn techniques with the fingers such as slapping, popping, tapping and thumbing, or techniques with the pen. The goal is for the student, with the right technique, to gain confidence in playing and to feel confident to perform any improvisation he wishes.
