Hi, I'm a complete newbie to playing the bass. I have a 4 string and I know 4 chords but I don't even know what they are, if you could tell me this first it would be nice. 5th fret 2nd string 5th fret 3rd string 7th fret 2nd string I'm counting the strings from the bottom. Could you also give me more chords that go together, well I heard that theres chords that go together, correct me if I'm wrong. But I'd like to learn and memorize the chords and then go on to technique, I've heard about slaps and thigns, I'm trying to learn alone so its been difficult, and I'm just starting. What is the basic way to play, with your fingers or thumb, I find it easier with my thumb, but is this correct. So if you could help me with this for now, so I can learn some chords and then I can actually learn about different techniques, reading the music and other things. Thanks a bunch.
