Do I need to know sheet music to play bass?
sheet music/notation Nearly everyone has an opinion on which one you should learn. But, after years of experience I don't think one size fits all.

Thus, do basses use chords or sheet music?
It can be done, but must be done with care. Instead of playing chords directly, bassists outline the notes of chords. Bassists emphasize the individual notes that make up chords. By outlining the notes of chords a bassist implies the sound of a particular chord.
