Basic right hand bass technique

Fingerstyling and plectrum picking

BASS EXPO 2014: In this lesson, we'll be looking at some of the common right-hand techniques you'll be using as a bass player, more specifically, fingerstyle and plectrum.

Throughout this video series, tutor Matt Mead is playing a Cort Artisan B4 20th bass guitar through a Hartke Kickback 15 combo amp.

The B4 bass features Bartolini MK-1 Pickups and MK-1 EQ, complimenting the natural tone of the mahogany or swamp ash body. And thanks to Hipshot Lic. Tuners, tuning accuracy and stability is exactly what you'll get on the stylish, versatile, and affordable B4 bass.

Hartke's Kickback 15 combo amp houses the revolutionary Two-Way (upright and tilt back) cabinet design, plus a custom Hartke 15-inch aluminum cone driver, the unique Shape control for accurate tone shaping, a three-band EQ, passive/active input jack, and balanced XLR Out.

An experienced bassist and teacher, Mead is currently playing bass guitar with fast-rising UK rockers Empire.
