Learn The Open String Bounce Method

James Eager Bass Guitar Technique, Essential Technique Course

Hey Groove Masters,

Are you looking for that little trick that could kick your bass fills up a gear or two?

Today's lesson comes from a great suggestion from Patrick Foreman who asked me to show some of the bass lines I use in the intro music to the YouTube lessons.

Rather than just showing you note for note what I played, It's far more useful to understand the important concepts behind how these fill actually work.

This fill is in the style of the great Jaco Pastorius and will teach you the crafty 'Open String Bounce Method'...

In this video you'll discover:

  • The simple 'hack' to speed to your bass fills
  • How to move this concept around the neck
  • Why feeling the strong beats of the bar is so important

As always, keep groovin' hard...
