The electric Bass guitar is credited to being invented in 1950 by Mr. Leo Fender. A California guitar maker who wanted to make an amplified version of the double (string) bass. This would allow for easier playability and transportation as well as more diversity playing in different styles of music.
Bass guitar is one of the most important instruments in the musical family. Why? Because it provides the foundation that all other instruments stand on. Very much like the foundation of a house. You could have beautiful furniture, nice floors, and windows, but without a proper foundation, the house will crumble and fall. That is why the bass is so important. It provides this in all styles of music.
