Lemmy Kilmister

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by LordPanze, Mar 7, 2016.

  1. Hey all, half (more like 3/4) of the reason I bought a bass guitar is the music of motorhead. While i'm incredibly new to guitars as a whole, I want to start learning to play in a style similar to Lemmy. I still plan on learning the basics with a teacher (every other week) but when I am able to join a band I want to be able to play like he did. Are there any good resources to help self teach the techniques he used?
  2. Axl (Bill) Rose has a video tutorial:

    Learn how to play with a pick, get a bass with a pickup near the bridge and play with distortion.

    You're good to go. :D
