About Whichbass – What’s it all about?
What is WhichBass?
Which Bass is a website built for beginners that wish to learn the electric bass guitar. As a beginner it is difficult to figure out which bass guitar will give you the best value for your money without overspending. Once you have a bass guitar in mind (see the Squire Affinity Precision Jazz for my suggestion) what comes next is the amplifier and the strings and effects pedals. All of this information can take time to learn on your own. On this site, I explain in plain layman terms what you need to know.
All pages are written with beginners in mind and provide the need to know starters for any new coming bass player. If you’ve joined us at a later in your musical career, we cater for you too as our guides section has something for players of all skills and the blog is updating regularly featuring news of all things bass guitar.
How WhichBass began
WhichBass is written and maintained by me, Alfie Williams. I enjoy making music and talking about all things musical. Whether the music itself – writing, producing and performing, the industry, the techniques or the trends. It gets me up in the morning and is something I yearn to improve day after day.
I started playing the bass back in the early 2000’s and worked as a sound engineer during that time. I had a lot of help in learning how to play and honing my stage craft through the years from these experiences. Writing this site for a new bass player helps me understand from a different perspective and engage with like minded people who share this interest.
