Learn Money For Nothing On Bass Guitar (Simple Songs For Beginners) – YT130

Paolo Bass Lab PLUS Membership, blog, Song Analyse

Hey, James here…

In this unpredictable, crazy world right now… we’re hitting a small but important milestone here at eBassGuitar HQ… something we’ve been working towards for quite some time…

In the next 24 hours we’re going to clock up 10,000 subscribers on eBassGuitar YouTube Channel… which for the geeky folks (like me) means we’re now at the YT Bronze level 😉

One of the reasons I know the channel has been gaining popularity is because we share real world, simple bass guitar skills which can be put in to practice really fast.

And this week’s lesson is no different because it's the third part of our ‘Simple Songs’ series where I show you exactly how to break down songs in their core elements.

Today I’m going to share how to break down the legendary Dire Straits classic Money For Nothing into two simple chord sequences and two straight forward grooves.

If you follow the approach I show you in the video you could be playing Money For Nothing in as little as 10 minutes… 

Hence why this is a song I often teach bass players who are in the very early phases of playing the bass guitar.

Also, have you heard of The Bass Vault? 

This is my personal resource of over 550 song charts,hybrid charts, and full transcriptions which I’ve been creating for the last 15 years.

To make this song even easier and faster to learn I’m also going to share my own personal chord chart to Money For Nothing (from The Bass Vault)… completely free so you can see each section written down.

Stay safe,
