Important history not covered in the Texas standards: Electric bass, 1935 to 1969
Scott Devine and a blue Fender Bass. Scott’s the guy behind the YouTube monster, Scott’s Bass Lessons.
It’s from Scott’s Bass Lessons — but history you need. Let Scott and the video speak for itself.
The Bass, 1935-1969: The Players You need to know.
Am I biased toward bass? Well, yeah — biased toward most stuff in the bass clef, really.
Larry Graham? Heck, in comments here, tell who your favorite bass player was, before 1970. And in hopes of actually stimulating a conversation, throw in any double-bass, stand-up bass players you want to add.
Patent for the first electric bass built by the Fender company, March 24, 1953. Clarence L. Fender (Leo Fender) claimed a patent on the “ornamental design” of the “guitar.” I see no mention that it’s a bass. This is the same drawing Scott shows in the video. Interesting. Via Google Patent.
