Whilst bass players are often laughed at by guitarists for “only having four strings”, it should be clear after these few pages that they also have a crucial role in a band.

Nowadays you can easily get a decent-sounding instrument for little money while in the past it was more the exception for somebody to have a reasonable instrument as a beginner. This is partly due to guides like this one but also to the large variety of quality instruments available at a low price.
