I finally understand the reason behind Paul McCartney’s signature bass. I always found it a little ugly, however after practicing bass scales and trying to play the album version of Johnny B. Goode, I realize that Paul’s short scale bass would be so much easier to play. The difference between a long and short scale bass guitar is about 3 inches. The neck being three inches shorter would really help me out as I am trying to stretch across 4 frets. I see a lot of improvement with playing these scales but I know the journey is nowhere near done.
As I continue practicing this it is time to start looking for some free music editing software… and someone that can do the solo for Johnny. B Goode. If you have any suggestions with the music editing software… please let me know.
