I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment How do I connect my bass to my Macbook pro for effects processing?
music.stackexchange.com/questions/2032/… then? music.stackexchange.com/questions/11167/… -- but it seems to me the first answer in the dupe tells you what you need -- a USB audio interface.

comment Howto: Electric Bass Guitar - Home Recording
cheapest option I know of, the Griffin iMic. No frills, but does an OK job of being a USB audio input for computers that don't already have one.

Welcome to music.se. Please search the site for existing answers before posting questions. This question has been answered several times. It's worth noting, there's nothing about a bass that makes the answer different than for an electric guitar. Nor is there much difference between a PC and a Mac in this respect.

comment How to teach music
All 10 kids at once, or one at a time? How many hours a day will you have with them? What previous musical experience do they have? What style of music do you have in mind? What previous musical experience do you have? Are you talking about solo performances or group performances? Will there be a concert at the end?

@DantheMan hence the common guitar pattern of D -> Dmaj7 -> D7, containing a descending note sequence D->C#->C

comment Why is a C7 chord named a dominant seventh chord?
@DantheMan no. C major 7th contains a B (7th not of C major). C dominant 7th contains a Bb (7th note of C dominant).

comment How to transpose slash chords for guitar
@Tim I'm pretty sure he means slash chords - "M/B" I read as "main/bass".

comment How to transpose slash chords for guitar
Do you mean "transpose" - change to a different key? Or do you mean translate? If translate, into what format?

comment Instrumental Live Performance
Loopstations are great if you're a multi-instrumentalists and if you're OK restricting your compositions to loopable structures. But there's lots you can't do with a loopstation (e.g. start a piece all-guns-blazing). Pay session musicians, and they won't argue.
