Hey, James here…
So I’m just on the ‘final descent’ finishing brand new book “The Essential Guide To Blues Bass Guitar”… which will be hitting the world over the next 6 weeks or so.
Writing this book has reminded me how playing Blues Bass just has to be one of the most fun, rewarding AND above all simple things a bass player can learn in the early days…
Master a few straight forwards skills and playing at your local blues jam session could be just a matter of weeks away.
Here’s the interesting thing…
There are a bunch of ‘Authentic’ blues bass formulas you’ll see time and time again.
I say ‘authentic’ because it doesn’t matter if you’re rocking out (bluesing out?!) out at home or playing stadiums with Eric Clapton… you’ll hear players using exactly the same concepts and it’s 100% kosha.
As a mentor said to me many years ago… playing blues bass can be as simple or complex as you like.
In this lesson I’m going to take you through 5 Authentic Blues Bass Line Formulas which always work…
Keep groovin’ hard,
