After launching the platform earlier this year, the Fender Play educational app has been expanded to include bass lessons. The app is available for iOS devices, Android devices, and desktops.
“Similar to other offerings on Fender Play, players progress through the learning process with simple bite-sized lessons, keeping their journey on track. With Fender Play Bass, players can learn essential bass skills, including slap bass, hammer-ons, how to play with a pick, funky slides, and how to read rhythm and ghost notes,” Fender writes. “Also, many songs on Fender Play feature companion lessons for both bass and guitar, giving aspiring musicians the resources to play with others.”
The app’s instructors include Pete Griffin, Chelsea Stevens, Ozzy Carmona, Nikki Stevens, Darren McGuire, Dan Ellis, Travis Dykes, and Harley Duggan. Along with bass technique, the app teaches you how to play bass-driven songs ranging from Green Day’s “Basketcase” to Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up.”
