Hi all, first post here. I'm hoping you can send me in the right direction for something very basic...such as learning how to properly play bass. I started "playing" bass about 12 years ago. My friends played guitar, and I decided I'd play bass. I fell in love with the instrument, but I tried to take so many short cuts in learning that I feel I never properly learned the craft of playing bass. From the principles of the instrument, to rudimentary skills, etc...I just tried to learn songs and a scale to jam with. Does anyone have a good recommendation on where to go to really learn the right way? And a free option is ideal Thanks!
