Why would you want to play barre chords on your bass? It doesn't sound good….

you can do it if you play the chords on the 12th frets - 20th frets

For those that want to play bar chords will & those that don't won't.

Sometimes we need the arpeggios to create a dynamic bassline and for outling the harmony (without using the root note)….and no one can remember all the open shapes…so barre chords are always better

Just finished submitting a Dinosaur Jr tab. Lots of bass power chords in that one.

That's a helluva tab, LoudLon. Nice work. I've always played single notes, but I think it's time to try to play a Dinsoaur Jr. song. Thanks!

I don't do barre chords. I use harmonic or add 11 chords.
