Calling Names
(By Tyson)


Allot of the time, the job of the bassist is to go along with the rhythm guitar. To do this, youíll need to know the names of the notes. Here they go.

The G string from the 0 fret to the 24th fret is as follows.
G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#

Here's the D string from the 0 fret to the 24th fret.

D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#


This is the A string from the 0 fret to the 24th fret.

A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#

Last is the E string from the 0 fret to the 24th fret.

E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-E-F-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B-C-C#-D-D#-


If nothing else, memorize the first 5 frets of every string. You can learn the rest later.

Now itís time to practice what you learned. Try to play the Jesus Freak main riff by the note names.

F F F F C# C# C# C# D# D# D# D# A# A# C

In conclusion, although reading guitar chords isnít an automatic quality of a bassist, it makes things a heck of allot easier on the band. Plus, itís always cool to know what your playing.
