As beautiful as the melody is, its sound will be incomplete without a bass line. In wind ensembles, this line is performed by a tuba, in folk ensembles - often a button accordion or an accordion, and in pop, rock music, jazz and other genres - bass guitar (popularly - bass). Together with a drummer, the bass player creates a rhythm section - the pillar on which the sound of the rest of the band is built.
Initially, bass guitar functions were limited to accompaniment. But in the course of evolution, the bass took its place as an independent instrument. The signature sound of funk directions is also his merit. Today, there are classes for teaching the instrument in music schools and universities with a pop or jazz bias, and all this suggests that the bass has turned from a once “secondary instrument” into an original and self-sufficient figure.
Until the 30s of the last century, the double bass served as an accompanying instrument in the ensemble. With the advent of the electric guitar, it became necessary to create an electric analogue of the double bass, since the quiet sound, short sustain and bulkiness of the latter were clearly lagging behind the times. The prototype of the modern bass guitar is considered to be the Gibson bass mandolin and Paul Thutmark's invention of the Audiovox Electric Bass. And the first bass guitar that went into mass production, and the benchmark from which competitors began to build on, was the Fender Precision Bass, created by Leo Fender on the basis of the Fender Telecaster electric guitar he had previously invented.
If you enter into the search “buy bass guitar”, the search page will show an electric bass guitar, familiar to the layman. But apart from electric ones, there are also acoustic basses. They are not so popular and in demand, however, they are widely used for chamber rooms and light music - jazz, country, folk ensembles, where acoustic bass can replace a bulky bass balalaika.
Instruments are also distinguished by the number of strings. The first copies were produced with four strings, but today five-, six-, and even seven-string basses are not rare. The latter, however, are not in such high demand as four- or five-stringed ones, and most often they can be found in extreme musical genres.
