In the 1930s, musician Paul Tutmarc manufacturing lap steel guitars, developed the first electric string bass in its modern form, a fretted instrument designed to be played horizontally. The addition of frets enabled bassists to play in tune more easily than on acoustic or electric upright basses. But, since the 1990s the bass guitar has largely changed the double bass in popular music as the bass instruments in the rhythm section.

As well as, the bass guitar include in many styles of music like, rock, heavy metal, pop, punk rock, country, reggae, gospel, blues, symphonic rock, and jazz. It is often a solo instrument in jazz, jazz fusion, Latin, funk, progressive rock and other rock and metal styles.Basically, the bass guitar is a stringed instrument played mostly with the fingers or thumb, by plucking, slapping, popping, strumming, tapping, thumping, or picking with a plectrum, often known as a pick.

Generally, we can see the bass guitar is similar in appearance and construction to an electric guitar, but with a longer neck and scale length, and four to six strings or courses. The four-string bass, by far the most common, is usually tuned the same as the double bass.
